He spent the last year as managing director of A&P Tyne, who operate the largest commercial dry-dock on the East coast of England. His previous roles include working with Type 26 vessels for the UK Navy and shipyard upgrades with BAE.
He will have a key role within FMPG’s senior leadership team as it works to complete the two vessels under construction for Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd (CMAL), restructures during 2023/24, positions for additional projects on behalf of BAE Systems & others and targets the small vessel replacement programme for CMAL.
Initially on a one-year contract, Carla Roberts joins as chief financial officer, having recently served as financial director within Water Retail. Along with a personal love of sailing, Carla joins FMPG with a strong background across a variety of businesses in various stages of turnaround and experience with local governments.

“These senior appointments bring new talent and a wealth of experience to FMPG and will enable us to expand on strategic planning to build a sustainable future for the shipyard.”
