Brett joins port of Tyne

Simon Brett has joined the UK’s port of Tyne as commercial director of port services.

He joins the port of Tyne from Associated British Ports (ABP) where he was most recently head of projects.

With over 30 years of experience within the maritime and port sector, Brett began his career with the UK’s Crown Estate and later Westminster Dredging before joining ABP’s graduate training programme. He spent 26 years in various roles at ABP, becoming head of projects in 2013.

“I hope to bring my experience to bear, building on the great reputation the port has in bulks and renewables,” said Brett.

“The port of Tyne is one of the UK’s major deepsea ports, closer than any other port to the offshore wind farms at Dogger Bank, Hornsea and Seagreen. I am excited to join the team and up for the challenges ahead in taking the port to the next phase in developing a major hub for offshore energy.”
