Condor appoints Christophe Mathieu as interim CEO

Condor Ferries has appointed Christophe Mathieu, CEO of Brittany Ferries, as its interim CEO with immediate effect.
This is a result of John Napton stepping down from the company after two and a half years in the role.

Christophe is a long-term board member of Condor and will provide interim leadership and stability with a focus on maintaining lifeline freight and passenger services to the Islands.

Russel Kew, Condor Ferries’ Executive Chairman, said: “We would like to thank John for his leadership over his time with the company, during which he oversaw the continuation of services during the pandemic and the introduction of our latest vessel, CONDOR ISLANDER, last year. We all wish him well for the future.

Christophe possesses exceptional experience in ferry operations as CEO of Brittany Ferries and will provide strong leadership for Condor. He also knows our people, customers and the Islands well so it is very much business as usual.”

In January this year, the Government of Jersey and States of Guernsey announced a procurement process for a new long-term operating agreement for freight and passenger services to the Channel Islands. Christophe will actively lead Condor through this.

On 14 November 2019, Columbia Threadneedle Investments purchased Condor, forming a consortium with Brittany Ferries, who also bought a minority stake in the company.
