Shoreham port bids farewell to longstanding board member

As we stride into 2019, Shoreham Port bids farewell to Stuart Nicholls, who has been on the Board for six years. Stuart joined the Board in January 2013, with over 25 years of experience in shipping and marine services. In 2016, Nicholls chaired a new subcommittee of the Board – the Compliance Committee. His maritime and safety expertise made Stuart the ideal candidate to lead this Committee and to question and challenge the Port’s safety culture.

Nicholls said: “It’s been a privilege to serve on the Board at Shoreham Port and to see the Port go from strength to strength over my tenure. I wish the Board and team at Shoreham much success over the coming years and look forward to hearing of the Port’s continued growth and development.”

Replacing Nicholls, Shoreham Port has welcomed Sir Alan Massey to the Board. Massey has extensive maritime experience, having served for 33 years in the Royal Navy before taking over as Chief Executive of the UK Maritime & Coastguard Agency (MCA) in 2010. As a Naval Officer, he commanded an impressive number of major warships, including the aircraft carriers HMS Illustrious and HMS Ark Royal, later sitting for five consecutive years on the Admiralty and Navy Boards. Sir Alan Massey’s naval career culminated as Second Sea Lord and Commander-in-Chief, Naval Home Command.

In his eight years with the MCA, Massey led a fundamental transformation of HM Coastguard Service, introduced an all-new fleet of UK Search and Rescue helicopters under MCA control, and modernised the MCA’s vessel survey, inspection, regulatory and ship registration functions.

Massey commented: “It is a great honour to join the Board at Shoreham Port. I am very much looking forward to bringing my experience to a new environment and to working with the current Board and leadership team. The Port has ambitious plans for the future and I relish the opportunity to see these come to fruition.”

Amber Foster, Chair of the Board added: “On behalf of the Board, I would like to offer Stuart my sincere thanks for his significant contribution to the Board. Stuart brought a wealth of knowledge and experience to the Board and added considerable value to the Port’s drive for high safety standards and compliance. I would also like to extend a very warm welcome to Sir Alan Massey who we all look forward to working with.”
