New man on the Humber for ABP

[ June 30, 2014   //   ]

Associated British Ports has appointed James Leeson as head of commercial, Humber. He comes to ABP from Inchcape Shipping Services, where he was global key account manager and his new role will involve working closely with customers to ensure their requirements are met and generating new business for the four Humber ports of Hull, Goole, Grimsby, and Immingham.

The move follows a number of significant developments for ABP’s Humber operations, including the announcement that Siemens and ABP will be investing more than £300 million in wind turbine manufacturing facilities at the Port of Hull, a £100 million Humber-wide agreement with Drax Power Ltd, and the opening of the £26 million Grimsby River Terminal.
