The Isles of Scilly Steamship Group has appointed Andrew Fogden as its first freight and commercial manager – a new role within the company.
Fogden, who recently relocated to Cornwall from Buckinghamshire, will take responsibility for freight services to the Isles of Scilly, a vital part of the year-round lifeline link the Steamship Group provides to the islands.
His new role will include looking at freight strategy by reviewing the current operation and working closely with the Steamship team, the community and suppliers.
He has previously held management positions for logistic companies in the south east of England and has many years of experience in freight contract negotiations.
He said: “I was attracted to the role because of the combination of operational management and the commercial side of the business. I am delighted to join the Steamship Group and become part of the lifeline service it delivers for Scilly.”
Stuart Reid, chief executive of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Company, added: “We are delighted to welcome Andrew to the company and would like to take this opportunity to wish him every success in his new role.”
