9th October 2019 - Press Release

Appointment of Jane Simpson to Dover Harbour Board

Dover Harbour Board has appointed Jane Simpson as its newest Board Member.

Jane joins at a pivotal time for the Port of Dover with its £250 million investment in new infrastructure coming on stream to support a portfolio of growing businesses, including cruise and cargo, alongside the development of a 30-year master plan to deliver the ferry port of the future.

Chairman Richard Everitt CBE said: “I am delighted to welcome Jane Simpson to the Board. With her background in infrastructure and engineering alongside extensive experience in large capital programme delivery and asset management, Jane brings a strong skill set that will enhance the Board’s governance during a period of major and ongoing investment.”

Such skills have been developed through key appointments at Network Rail, where Jane was latterly Chief Engineer and interim Group Safety, Technical and Engineering Director, as well as more recently as Head of Capital Delivery for Severn Trent Water.

Jane Simpson said: “I am excited to join the Board of the Port of Dover at such a critical time. I have been greatly impressed with the commitment and vision to deliver an exemplary port for their customers and community, and I look forward to supporting their journey as the Port embarks on the next phase of its development."

Previously featured in the Telegraph’s top 50 women in engineering and the Financial Times’ 100 women to watch, Jane’s position on the Board will also provide increased support to the Board’s diversity agenda, the Port being a signatory to the Maritime UK Women in Maritime pledge to drive gender diversity throughout the organisation and wider industry.
