Shoreham Port’s Board has been through considerable change over the past month, with Chairman of the Board Jim May, Fiona Morris and Rachael Henderson leaving when their terms came to an end at the end of the year. Replacing Jim, Fiona and Rachael are four new Board members, all with very different backgrounds bringing a wealth of local knowledge and fresh skills and experience to Shoreham Port.
Welcomed to the Board in January were Trevor Giddings, Carolyn Dwyer, Amber Foster and Joanne Newell, all whom live locally and were selected after a rigorous selection process, which saw over 40 candidates apply.
Trevor has a professional background as a Civil Engineer and currently runs his own management consultancy, focusing on the effective and efficient delivery of infrastructure programmes and projects.
Carolyn is Director of Communities, Housing and Environment for the London Borough of Lambeth and is also a Non-Executive Director for the Scottish Futures Trust. Carolyn has thirty years’ experience in the public and private sectors leading major infrastructure and regeneration programmes and has been responsible for business transformation and organisational change.
Amber is a senior solicitor with a broad experience of commercial law matters in the manufacturing, retailing and broadcasting sectors. For most of her career she has worked in-house for large organisations, most recently as General Counsel and Head of Government affairs (UK) for QVC.
Jo has spent the majority of her thirty year career in media sales/marketing and management, joining The Guardian in 1982, becoming Managing Director of Surrey and Berkshire Media in 2001 and Berkshire Media Group in 2007. Since 2010 she has held a number of senior interim and consultancy posts spanning a diverse range of businesses and sectors including publishing, manufacturing and the NHS.
Rodney Lunn, Chief Executive at Shoreham Port commented “I would like to give a very warm welcome to our new members. It is great to see so much diversity on the Board as we venture into a new year and a new chapter in the Port’s history. I can say with confidence that our new Board members have joined Shoreham Port at a very exciting time and we look forward to working with them.”
