Lewis businessman, Angus Campbell, has been appointed Chair of CalMac’s new Community Board, which the ferry operator is creating to provide a voice of the communities on strategic issues.


The creation of the Board was part of CalMac’s successful bid to operate west coast ferry services for the next 8 years, along with the appointment of Brian Fulton as Director of Community and Stakeholder Engagement.


Brian Fulton said: “Securing the right chair is a key milestone in the development of the community board and, with Angus’ assistance, will now look to appoint 12 board members. We have been delighted by the calibre of applications for both the chair and board memberships and are on track to have everything in place for the first board meeting in October.”

Angus Campbell said: “I am delighted to be given the opportunity to chair the new community board. This initiative will enhance communication between the company and the communities it serves and will bring wider benefits to all. I look forward to working with the new board members to ensure we reach into all parts of our geography and all areas of interest to our communities.”

The chair is an independent, paid, post. The community board will meet twice a year and be separate from the David MacBrayne Board with secretariat services provided by CalMac’s Community and Stakeholder Engagement Directorate. CalMac will not be represented on the Community Board.
