The Isles of Scilly Steamship Group has appointed a new Chief Financial Officer to hold responsibility for risk management and financial reporting activities across the group.
Stuart Reid joins the company in a year which has seen significant investment into its travel facilities, with £2m spent on refurbishing Scillionian III, the completion of a £1m new terminal at Land’s End Airport and the lease of a new Twin Otter Skybus to meet passenger demand.
As former Financial Controller of Smart Solutions Recruitment Ltd, one of South Wales’ fastest growing companies, and with a background working for Chartered Accountants Kilsby & Williams, Stuart brings to the Steamship Company extensive financial experience which will support the company in this period of growth.
Stuart Reid, Chief Financial Officer for the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group said: “Throughout my career I have worked for a number of rapidly growing companies and the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group fits that mould perfectly.”
Jeff Marston, Chief Executive of the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group said: “Stuart received strong praise from his previous employer and we hope he will bring his significant skills to the Steamship Group. I look forward to working with him as the Group continues to grow and develop all of its travel facilities.”
