Chris Davies has been appointed as Group Business Development Lead (Commercial Ship Repair) at A&P and Cammell Laird in a newly established position across both businesses.

Chris joined A&P Group as Business Development Manager Marine in 2018 and has a wealth of connections across the maritime sector. Over the last four years, Chris has been responsible for bringing a range of new customers to A&P from both the commercial and offshore sectors.

Chris will now share his considerable expertise with Cammell Laird and coordinate business development activity across both businesses.

David McGinley, CEO, said the new appointment will deliver significant value to A&P Group and Cammell Laird customers, providing greater flexibility and dock availability to ship owners and managers.

David said: “Since my appointment of CEO of both A&P and Cammell Laird, I have been striving to introduce greater collaboration between key functions of both businesses.

“A&P Group and Cammell Laird have a total of eleven drydocks across the country. By joining up our business development function, we will be able to provide our customers with greater visibility of our dock availability, which will enable us to accommodate their requirements more efficiently than before. This will ultimately reduce the downtime of their vessels and enhance the availability of their fleet.”

Chris Davies, Group Business Development Lead said: “I have really enjoyed my four years at A&P Group and the business has established some key partnerships which has been great to see. I look forward to working with the team at Cammell Laird.”

Prior to joining A&P Group, Chris was Business Development Manager for V-Ships Offshore, Commercial Manager at Bibby Ship Management Ltd and Sponsorship Director for the Shipping Professional Network London (SPNL).
