The Chairman of the Steam Packet Company will retire in Spring 2020 after holding his position for over 20 years.

Robert Quayle was appointed as chair in 2008 and was a director of the company for more than two decades.

He will step down from his role on March 31st next year.

Mr Quayle said: ‘It has been a privilege to serve this great Company over a fascinating period in its long history. I have witnessed a number of changes of ownership during that time but the Company has continued to provide a consistent and reliable service to the Island community throughout.'

Chief Executive Mark Woodward said Mr Quayle had played a much-valued role in the proud history of the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company.

‘The diligent and efficient manner in which Robert has served us, both as chairman and as a director, is admired by many inside and outside of the Company. He has not only discharged his duties and responsibilities in a professional manner but always strived to put the interests of the Island first.

‘On behalf of the Steam Packet Company, I’d like to place on record our gratitude for his long service and acknowledge the fine contribution he has made.’
