Celtic & Co hires Hayball as new finance chief
Keeping it local. Digital sustainable fashion retailer Celtic & Co has appointed Martin Hayball its new head of finance. He joins from fellow Cornish fashion retailer Seasalt.
Hayball was previously head of financial planning and analysis at Seasalt, a position he held for 10 months. Before that, he held senior financial positions with utilities firms Pennon Group and South West Water.
