THE NEW MANAGERS

---
In consequence of the retirement of Mr. J. Bruce Ismay from the
presidency of the International Mercantile Marine Company on June 30 and
the succession of Mr. Harold A. Sanderson to that position, Messrs.
Henry Concanon, E. Lionel Fletcher, and Arthur B. Cauty have been
appointed managers of the Oceanic Steam Navigation Company (Limited)
(the White Star Line), the British and: North Atlantic Steam Navigation
Company (Limited), and the International Navigation Company (Limited) as
from July 1.

Mr. Henry Concanon began his business career under the Mersey Docks and
Harbour Board, and in 1889 joined the White Star Line, under the
late Mr. T. H. Ismay, as Principal of the Steamship Department,
afterwards becoming Assistant General Manager of the line. At present he
is joint manager of the White Star, Dominion, and American Lines, and is
a director of the British and North Atlantic Steam Navigation Company
and the International Navigation Company. He is a member of the National
Committee for the Training of British Seamen.

Mr. Edward Lionel Fletcher is a joint manager of the White Star,
Dominion, and American Lines, and is a director of the Aberdeen Line and
Shaw, Savill, and Albion Company. He has spent practically all his
business career with the White Star Company. When he left Eton he joined
the firm as an apprentice and on the completion of his articles
travelled round the world for nearly two years. He then rejoined the
White Star Line, eventually taking up his present position. In 1912 he
was chairman of the Liverpool Steamship Owners' Association. He is now
chairman of the Millers Point Stevedoring Company (Limited), Sydney,
N.S.W.

Mr. Arthur Belcher Cauty, who is also a joint manager of the White Star,
Dominion, and American Lines, is a director of the British and North
Atlantic Steam Navigation Company and the International Navigation
Company. He was born in 1870 and began his business career with
Richardson, Spence, and Co., Liverpool, the managing agents of the Inman
Line. When the name of this line was changed to that of the American
Line and the mail steamers transferred to Southampton in 1894 he joined
the London staff of that company. He remained in London until 1899, and
then took up an appointment with the White Star Line and returned to
Liverpool.

Some particulars of Mr. Sanderson's career were given in The Times on
January 1, when his succession to the chairmanship of the International
Mercantile Maine Company was announced.
