John Keefe is Director of Public Affairs for Eurotunnel, the operator of the Channel Tunnel and its integrated Le Shuttle transport system. He joined the company in 1993 during the construction phase of the ‘Project of the Century’ and has worked in several roles in operations and at Group level, both in the UK and France. As a British ex-patriate and resident in France since 1993, John is a regular cross-border commuter using all means of transport to travel, although unsurprisingly favouring Eurotunnel’s Le Shuttle for its flexibility.

Issues such as freedom of movement, border controls, transport security, customs regulations and the future relationship between the UK and the EU are constant professional and personal interests.

John was the originator of the EY report on the Economic Footprint of the Channel Tunnel, which showed that over €100bn of goods, 25% of trade with EU countries travel through the Channel Tunnel each year. The report shows how intricately the British Economy is linked to the rest of the EU.
