The CTC Board of Directors is extremely pleased to announce Matt Ridgway’s promotion to Assistant General Manager effective May 1, 2020.

Matt joined CTC in 2013 as a Captain after moving to Chebeague with his family. In 2016 he was promoted to Senior Captain and in 2019 to Marine Operations Manager.

Since graduating from college Matt has spent most of his time working on the water - where his travels have taken him from Nova Scotia to Venezuela and around the Caribbean. Prior to joining CTC, Matt was the Waterfront Manager at Portland Yacht Services and director of the Marine Learning Center (USCG licensing school).

In 2019 Matt played a critical role in working with Washburn & Doughty in the Independence’s construction – making regular (often weekly) trips to East Boothbay to check on progress and consult on issues. Matt’s knowledge of boats, maritime operations and the unique needs of Chebeague’s ferry service have proven invaluable to CTC and the community.

Since becoming the Marine Operations Manager, Matt has taken full responsibility for marine operations, including management of staff, scheduling, training, and overseeing maintenance. Additionally, during the last two years, Matt has trained in various aspects of managing the company. In his role as Assistant General Manager, Matt will continue to oversee the marine operations while becoming more familiar with the mainland procedures.

Matt lives on Chebeague with his wife Carrie and two children Morgan and Hannah.

Please join us in congratulating Matt on his well-deserved promotion!
