David MacBrayne Ltd (DML) announced today (Tuesday, November 7,) that its Chief Executive Martin Dorchester, who is also Managing Director of CalMac Ferries Ltd, will be leaving the company to take up a new role as Chief Executive of Includem, - a specialist Scottish charity supporting some of the most vulnerable young people and their families across Scotland.

David McGibbon, Chairman of DML, said:"On behalf of everyone at David MacBrayne Ltd, I thank Martin for the commitment and drive he has shown in leading and developing the organisation and in building such an exceptional team. His tremendous leadership and knowledge have brought considerable success to David MacBrayne as well as significant benefits to the Scottish economy. Martin will leave with our sincere thanks and our good wishes for every success in his new appointment."

Martin Dorchester, said: "Although saddened to leave David MacBrayne, I leave an organisation in good shape, with an excellent executive team and 2 long term contracts in place.  Only a special organisation and opportunity could have drawn me away from David MacBrayne and Includem is that type of organisation. It has been my honour to lead David MacBrayne through some difficult and challenging times and I am very much looking forward to working with the team at Includem."
