Canal Boat - - News -

MIKE GRIMES, one of the team of se­nior man­agers as­sem­bled by the Canal & River Trust since its trans­for­ma­tion from Bri­tish Wa­ter­ways, is to leave at Easter.

Mr Grimes will have been Head of Boat­ing for un­der two years, hav­ing joined CRT in early 2015 as Head of Busi­ness Boat­ing, then be­ing given over­all charge of boat­ing later the same year fol­low­ing the merg­ing of the li­cens­ing and en­force­ment func­tions. CRT an­nounced he had “re­gret­tably de­cided to step down”. Head of Cus­tomer Ser­vices and Op­er­a­tions Ian Rogers said he had “laid the foun­da­tions for a clear, pro­duc­tive way of work­ing for and with boaters” and he had been “pas­sion­ate about mak­ing sure boaters’ voices are heard and re­sponded to”. Mr Grimes said he had “ev­ery con­fi­dence” that the team would “en­sure things run smoothly”, while he him­self planned to take time off this sum­mer – “you may even see me out boat­ing”.
