Ferguson Marine Port Glasgow board chairman appointed

Former airport chair takes post.

A new chairman has been appointed to the board at Ferguson Marine Port Glasgow.

Andrew Miller will take up post from 1 December for three years.

Mr Miller, who previously chaired the board at Prestwick Airport, will be responsible for delivering Ministerial priorities for the publicly-owned yard.

Deputy First Minister John Swinney said: “Andrew Miller brings a wealth of experience from previous senior positions, and is clear on the strategic and commercial issues for the yard. 

“I am confident that his experience will help to deliver Ministerial priorities – the completion of the two ferries, securing a future for the yard and its workforce, and supporting Scotland’s island communities that rely on this type of vessel on a daily basis.

“I would like to thank Robert Mackenzie for stepping into the role of Interim Chair while the recruitment process took place.”


The chairman will be paid in line with pay policy for board appointments at the rate of £500 per day, for five days each month.
