The new Chief Executive of the Steamship Company has been appointed a director of the Islands’ Partnership.

Robert Goldsmith will replace St Mary’s Hall owner Clifford Freeman on the nine-member board of Scilly’s tourism body.

Clifford stepped down earlier this year due to increasing business commitments.

Previous Steamship Company boss Jeff Marston was also a director of the Partnership until he stood aside last October.

Chairman Chris Gregory said he’s delighted that Rob has agreed to join the board.

Chris says his personal skills and market development experience within the transport industry will be an undoubted asset to the organisation.

And he says the Directors are looking look forward to reaffirming productive ties with the Isles of Scilly Steamship Group.
