North Star has appointed Mathew Gordon as its new chief executive. The company has also set up North Star Renewables and is seeking to deliver a new fleet of vessels to support the offshore wind maintenance market.
Gordon will take over the CEO position this month from Callum Bruce, who is stepping down as chief executive after 34 years in the business, but who will remain in the short-term to ensure the smooth transition of responsibilities.
Gordon has held senior positions in Unique Group, Atlantic Offshore, Viking Seatech and Subsea 7.
“We have found the right person to take North Star forward. Matt’s experience and drive will be invaluable as North Star seeks to further evolve its services in the emergency response and rescue vessel market and the rapidly-developing offshore wind sector. He will also oversee the integration of our recent acquisition of Boston Putford Offshore Safety. We are very grateful to Callum for his dedication and leadership of North Star over the years and wish him well for the future.”Steven Lowry of North Star’s owner, Basalt Infrastructure Partners.
“After all these years, I am sad to be leaving the business but felt the time was right for me to handover the reigns. I know I leave the business in capable hands and have no doubt Matt will bring new ideas, while maintaining the values we have for providing our clients with the highest possible level of service.”Callum Bruce.
