Shoreham Port is delighted to announce the appointment of Stuart Condie as Deputy Chairman of the Board. Stuart has been a Non Executive Director for the Port since January 2011 and in addition to this remit, he has contributed to the Audit Committee, and latterly became Chairman of the Port of Shoreham Trustee Company. Stuart also offers representation on safety matters and at the Port Users Group meetings.
Stuart has taken on the role at an exciting time for the Port, with much growth and development planned. 2014 has got off to a flying start with many commercial ship calls already and new cargoes entering the Port. Investment in bespoke equipment and the maintenance and development of the Port’s infrastructure remains a priority, in order to ensure Shoreham can continue their services from ship to shore in an efficient manner.
As a trust port, Shoreham is governed by a board of seven highly experienced Non Executive Directors, with an eclectic mix of knowledge and experience. Every year a new Deputy Chair is appointed. A robust and transparent election process takes place and this year Stuart was elected to take on the challenges of Deputy Chair.
James May, Chairman of the Board commented “Stuart brings a wealth of experience to the role, with an in depth knowledge of transportation, infrastructure, commercial expertise and financial acumen. Having held many other Non Executive Director posts, Stuart is well placed to help steer the strategic direction of the Port.”
Stepping down from the post is Fiona Morris, who will remain on the Board of Directors. Fiona made a significant contribution to the Board whilst in post and her energy and dynamism helped to drive the Port forward through a challenging economic climate. Fiona said “I have no doubt that Stuart will make an excellent Deputy, supporting the Chair and drawing on his own unique skill set to offer value to our customers and stakeholders alike. I am delighted for Stuart and pleased to be passing the role into safe hands”.
Stuart commented on his appointment “I am looking forward to the opportunities of the role and working closely with the Chairman of the Board. The Port operates in a very challenging market and I look forward to building on its successes and helping the business to continue to thrive.”
