Forth Ports beefs up its cruise business

Forth Ports’ Capital Cruising business, which runs six cruise terminals across the UK including Edinburgh and London, has appointed Chris Alexander to a new role in its management team.

Alexander was previously a Ships Agent with Denholm Wilhelmsen Limited working with cruise vessels across Scotland.

He also worked with Matthew Taylor also as a Ships Agent.

In this new role for Capital Cruising, Alexander will be responsible for coordinating and planning all cruise visits in Scotland and will work closely across cruise operations in the Forth and the Tay.

Capital Cruising’s head of cruise Robert Mason said: “We welcome Chris to the management team at an important time for our cruise business.

“We are growing year on year as the cruise industry increases in popularity and it’s important that we deliver an excellent customer experience for people visiting or leaving from our ports and anchorages. 2018 is set to be our busiest yet so this will keep Chris busy.”
