About Ann Ruddy - Redrose Developments Ltd
Ann’s ancestral roots are deep in Irish soil; however, it was the call of the sea and more specifically seaweed that brought her from her beautiful home in the West Midlands in England.
With a rich vein of experience in the areas of sales and marketing project management, lecturing, training, risk assessment and risk management, information systems and consultancy, Ann has proven herself to be a highly effective and adaptable individual.
Ann keeps her schedule full with developing a new business and researching other exciting projects; however, she finds time to work as a leader with teens in the local Foroige Club, and as part of an ongoing commitment to personal development.
Message from Ann Ruddy - CEO, Redrose Developments Ltd
My response to being accredited with ‘Thought Leader’ status from the All-Ireland Business Foundation is one of immense gratitude. Being recognised for this achievement is heartwarming and helps to sustain the passion that first inspired me to become involved in this exciting area of business.
Using seaweed we can address many of the Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN, from climate action, absorbing CO2, and preventing methane emissions, supporting partnership working in rural coastal economic communities, providing food and feed for a growing population, without the need for land use or freshwater, even to providing valued compounds to support cosmetic and medical treatments from stimulating hair growth and younger-looking skin to prevention and the treatment of viruses from COVID to cancer. I am looking forward to an exciting year ahead and continuing to raise awareness of this amazing resource.
