…Ops chief says it’s time to re­tire

Canal Boat - - Crt 2015 -

A SE­RIES OF changes in the higher ranks of CRT, which has al­ready seen the de­par­ture of three Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tors, has con­tin­ued with the an­nounce­ment that Vince Moran is to re­tire in the New Year af­ter 18 years.

As Head of Oper­a­tions and As­set Man­age­ment, he is in charge of run­ning and main­tain­ing the canals and rivers: he not only heads the re­gional wa­ter­way units but also the cen­tral en­gi­neer­ing teams and work­shops, plus wa­ter man­age­ment, her­itage, the en­vi­ron­ment and safety.

Chief Ex­ec­u­tive Richard Parry cred­ited him as the “driver of the sig­nif­i­cant im­prove­ments in safety, as­set man­age­ment and con­di­tion” as well as mak­ing “nu­mer­ous im­prove­ments” to the Trust’s ways of work­ing. Mr Moran said it had been “a great priv­i­lege to have helped with the de­vel­op­ment and im­prove­ment” of the canals and he had al­ways planned to re­tire at 60.

The news fol­lows the de­par­ture of Fi­nance Di­rec­tor Philip Ry­dal, Mar­ket­ing Di­rec­tor Si­mon Salem and Le­gal Di­rec­tor Nigel John­son in the last two years. Mr Parry told CanalBoat that all op­tions for the fu­ture would be looked at in­clud­ing a pos­si­ble re­assess­ment of se­nior roles rather than straight­for­ward re­place­ment.
