Ferryspeed Partners with Shaping Portsmouth
Ferryspeed has taken another step towards working with the city in 2023 through their new partnership with Shaping Portsmouth. As a patron, Ferryspeed will be working on a range of projects to support businesses and the wider community in Portsmouth.
Shaping Portsmouth works with 803 businesses, 500 local Ambassadors and 120 active volunteers in Portsmouth to create sustainable collaborations and innovative programmes in the city.
Shaping Portsmouth CEO Stef Nienaltowski said “The Shaping family has a new Patron, Ferryspeed - a true Portsmouth household name since 1985. I first met Janet & Faye from the organisation a few weeks ago where we discussed the work we do, and I was thrilled when they confirmed that the company wanted to join us on our journey.
Ferryspeed is synonymous with both Portsmouth and Channel Islands as they are the vital lifeline to their customers in Jersey and Guernsey. Janet, Faye and I have discussed the full meaning of our Patronage and I know their employees will be fully engaged with our programmes going forward.
Welcome to the whole team at Ferryspeed and I am looking forward to setting sail with you on our journey to help our city become even stronger together.”
Nick Green, Group Executive Director at Ferryspeed, added “As a significant employer in Portsmouth, we value the essential part the city has and continues to play in our success. Without the strength, tenacity and diversity of the community we simply would not be the company we are today.
Shaping Portsmouth gives us one of many opportunities to support the city of which we are so proud to be a part. As Patron we will work tirelessly with the business, education and wider communities alongside our fellow patrons to provide tangible opportunities and support to collaboratively help Portsmouth fulfil its untapped and undoubted potential.
Having already embarked on several projects we are looking forward to learning and continuing to enhance how we not only support but also protect the city and its environment.”
