Seafarers’ Charity CEO to step down

The chief executive of the Seafarers’ Charity, Catherine Spencer, is to leave the charity in July after three years overseeing its work supporting seafarers and their families.

She is leaving to take a role outside of the maritime sector and the process to find her replacement is now underway.

“I am fortunate to work with a fantastic team and board of trustees at The Seafarers’ Charity,” said Spencer.

“Together we’ve made meaningful changes that are making significant improvements to the lives of seafarers. It’s a great charity to work for and I know my dedicated colleagues will continue to innovate and create new ways of supporting seafarers now and into the future.”

Paul Butterworth, chair of the charity’s general council, added: “She will be missed greatly., She has successfully rebranded the charity, delivered a new strategic plan, rebuilt the leadership team and seen the charity emerge from the Covid-19 global pandemic on an even firmer footing.”
