Clyde Training Solutions strengthens its management team

Clyde Training Solutions are pleased to announce key appointments to its senior management team as it continues to expand its service offering to the Maritime, Offshore and Renewables industries.

Kris McDonald, formerly Training Centre Manager, has been promoted to General Manager with larger oversight of Company operations.

The appointment follows years of significant achievement in building customer experience and expanding the Company’s training portfolio.

Kris will report to John Abate, former Managing Director of Maersk Training UK, who has been appointed as Northern Marine’s Global Head of Training overseeing the Group’s Training portfolio which includes subsidiaries Clyde Training Solutions and Clyde Marine Training (cadet management).

Kris said: “Since we welcomed our first class of delegates in the summer of 2016, Clyde Training Solutions has accomplished a wide range of milestones across the industries that we serve.

“Such highlights include gaining and maintaining industry approvals and certifications through the GWO, MCA, OPITO and ISO9001 frameworks and becoming the first training provider in Scotland to be MNTB centre recognised.

“I am personally thankful to all of our dedicated and hardworking staff who have put in the groundwork thus far and continue to solidify CTS as the premium choice of venue for safety training within the central belt of Scotland.

“As with all visions and aspirations, it is important to keep a firm understanding of how we will make them into a reality. In the current climate it has never been more important to ensure a complete understanding of our customers’ requirements, challenges, and values.

“I look forward to playing a continued integral role in expanding upon our tailored solutions and further broadening our offering to wider international markets.”
