Commissioner selection panel

CHC would like to thank all those who responded to our recent advertising campaign for three new Harbour Commissioners; we received a good number of applications and have now commenced a shortlisting phase until the end of February. Shortlisted candidates will be invited to interview by our selection panel in mid-March. 

The Commissioner selection committee of three is led by CHC’s Chairman Roger Mathias, but also has a harbour stakeholder representative and an independent member, thereby ensuring that the balance of the selection panel is independent of the Commission. Richard Thornton, CEO of UKSA and Steve Hopper, the Queen’s Harbour Master of Portsmouth, have kindly agreed to sit on our selection committee this year as stakeholder representative and independent member respectively.

After the interview process is complete, the selection committee will make their recommendations to the March meeting of the Cowes Harbour Board, for the current Board to determine the appointments to be made.
