The Gallowglass Group has appointed Jonathan Sigsworth as managing director of Gallowglass Crewing, in a restructure designed to free-up Group MD Nick Grecian to focus on developing operations in the UK and overseas.
The move follows the recent appointment of head of HR, Chris Parry-Jones to the Gallowglass group board.
Sigsworth joined Gallowglass in 2002 as part of the Northern management team co-ordinating crewing operations for the Manchester Commonwealth Games. He became senior regional manager in 2008 and since that time has had major involvement in key projects including the London 2012 Olympics, Glastonbury and the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
“As the group continues to extend its reach, it has become essential to ensure that Crewing is led by a dedicated individual with all the experience and focus that Jon can bring to the role,” said Grecian.
Sigsworth said: “To be equipped to provide large numbers of trained qualified staff on demand requires a strong management structure, state-of-the art systems and operational discipline. I’m excited at the prospect of taking over the reins of Gallowglass Crewing and ensuring that we maintain the levels of management and service required by, and delivered throughout the London 2012 Olympics.”
The Gallowglass group has bases throughout England, and in Scotland, Spain, France, Monaco and Qatar.
