It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Peter Maltby, Founder and Chairman of CCL Global at the age of 76 on 12th December 2021. Peter leaves behind his beloved wife of 46 years, Brigid, three sons, Chris, David & Edward and three Grandchildren, Abby, Max & Yena.
Peter, who began his career as a talented Civil Engineer before moving into the heady world of Contracts Management with NATO, Bechtel and KBR in the 1970s. There, his eye for detail and diligence was perfect for this remit and was duly noticed by his superiors as he moved up the ranks.
Due to the demand of international travel, Peter look for a business opportunity that would keep him closer to home and his young family. In 1981, Peter founded CCL within the burgeoning technical staffing and project consultancy industry in the oil and gas sector. He soon realized that this relatively new commercial space of supplying senior consultants to independent oil, gas and engineering companies had long-term commercial viability and real opportunity attached to it.
CCL had consistent and continuous success for the next several decades within the oil and gas sector and continues to thrive to present day providing a multitude of project and client services within diversified sectors.
Peter’s ethos was to run CCL in the manner that would treat clients, consultants, assigned personnel and internal staff the same, which he believed was not only the right thing to do but also the model that has set CCL down a successful path.
Christopher Maltby, Peter’s son and Managing Director of CCL ‘’Dad built an international business from scratch that was not only a commercial success, but a venture he thoroughly enjoyed. Especially forging numerous friendships and joyful experiences with clients, consultants, international partners and staff across the past 40 years. From a personal standpoint, I will miss him dearly for his positive, energetic spirit as well as what he has done for me during my lifetime. He was truly a fantastic father, mentor, boss and hero to not only myself but my two brothers. He taught me so much of life, endless amounts of wisdom within the business sphere and I wouldn’t be where I am now without him. He will be sorely missed by family, friends and everyone who knew him. In his honor, we will endeavor to manage the company in the same manner in which it was founded and managed for the past 40 years.’’
Through Peter’s vision and tenacity, CCL has flourished over the decades during numerous industry booms and busts. As a result, over 40 years later, CCL remains a family-run business operating in numerous countries throughout the world and across multiple diversified sectors.
His son, Christopher Maltby, CCL’s current Managing Director replaces his father as CCL’s Chairman.
