Alison Jackson

Grant Facilitator

Prior to joining the Marine I project in 2020 supporting businesses with the funding application process, I had a wealth of industry experience, across sectors that include mining, construction and energy. During my career I have been involved in setting up global supply chains and worked with global logistics providers. I have also worked on business relocation projects and strategic industry partnerships as well as lean manufacturing practices and the setting up of new production lines. 

My perfect day involves... a long walk along the coastal path, a visit to one of Cornwall’s great gardens, dinner in a local pub and watching the sunset over the ocean.

Local businesses I salute... I salute all our local Cornish businesses that have battled through the unprecedented start to the 2020’s.  I am also inspired by businesses involved in developing processes and products that will help to clean up our oceans, provide clean energy and reverse the effects of climate change.
