The Chief Executive Officer of Caledonian Maritime Assets Limited (CMAL) is leaving his position after six years leading the organization. Guy Platten, who was appointed to CMAL in August 2007 at its inception, is leaving to take up a role with the U.K. Chamber of Shipping as CEO.

CMAL owns the ferries, ports, harbors and infrastructure for vital ferry services serving the west coast of Scotland.

During his tenure, Mr. Platten oversaw the launch on the Clyde of the world’s first ever sea going roll-on roll-off diesel electric passenger and vehicle hybrid ferry in December 2012, followed by the second vessel of its class in May this year. He has also commissioned a replacement £42 million ferry to serve the Stornoway to Ullapool route, alongside significant investments in harbor infrastructure at a number of ports, including Largs and Port Ellen.

Guy Platten will leave his position early in 2014 and will continue in his role at CMAL until then. CMAL will begin a recruitment search for a new chief executive immediately and the organization hopes to find a replacement before Mr. Platten leaves.
