Montrose Port Authority Gets New CEO

Tom Hutchinson has been appointed Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Montrose Port Authority (MPA), effective immediately.

In addition to taking on the role of CEO, Hutchison will retain his role as harbourmaster. The new CEO has been harbourmaster for the last four years.

Hutchinson started work at the port as a pilot in 2000. Prior to that he served as captain on various vessels operating around the UK and near continental market.

Earlier this year, MPA revealed that its previous CEO, Nik Scott-Gray, would be stepping down after accepting the position of general manager with Port of Dover Cargo.

“During his four years with MPA, Nik has restructured the operation and overseen a period of substantial growth and investment in the port’s infrastructure,” MPA said in a previous company statement posted on its website.

“We would like to thank Nik for his valued contribution to the port’s recent success and to wish him well in his new role,” MPA added.

MPA describes itself as a leading support, logistics and service hub for the North Sea energy industry and the general cargo market.

“We are the port of choice for key oil and gas suppliers and the growing offshore renewables and decommissioning sectors” the port authority states on its website.

MPA has operated as a Trust port for nearly 200 years. The port was established in 1493.
