HALLIDAY LEAVES CP SHIPS
David Halliday, one of four senior business unit heads of CP Ships, will leave the London-based container shipping group.
Halliday was formerly chief executive officer of Contship Containerlines, one of the shipping lines operated by CP Ships.
CP Ships said that Halliday will leave the group for personal reasons. He has worked for over 22 years with both Contship Containerlines and, since 1997, CP Ships.
Halliday will be replaced as by Jeremy Masters, vice president of the Australasian/Indian business unit, as already announced.
Besides Masters, the other senior executives in charge of regional business units at CP Ships are Jeremy Burrows (responsible for the Montreal gateway unit), Tony Bruno (Gulf/Atlantic unit) and Manuel Gonzales (Americas/Pacific unit).
Godric Baron, vice president marine operations, will also be leaving CP Ships now that the group’s four-year $800 million ship replacement program, for which he was responsible, is nearing completion.
CP Ships said that Baron’s responsibilities will be divided between John Murray, vice president marine, based in Tampa, and Ian Greig, vice president marine, based in the United Kingdom.
