Dover Harbour Board Chairman re-appointed

George Jenkins OBE has been re-appointed as Chairman of Dover Harbour Board (DHB), extending his chairmanship until 30 June 2016.

Together with Chief Executive Tim Waggott, Mr Jenkins continues to lead a period of massive transformation at the Port of Dover, involving organisational change, major port development and a reinvigoration of positive relationships with the Port’s customers and community that has led to a shared vision for the Port and for Dover.

George Jenkins, Chairman, Dover Harbour Board, said: “It continues to be an absolute privilege to lead, with my Chief Executive and fellow Board members, an organisation that is working at the heart of the community and as the heartbeat of the UK’s economic prosperity. This is a wonderful time to be involved at Dover.  Having committed to DHB’s biggest ever single investment in our flagship Dover Western Docks Revival project, we are on the cusp of achieving something incredibly special for us all.”

Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said: “This is fantastic news for the Port and everything it has and continues to achieve.  It is a clear indication that what we are delivering is good for Dover and supports the prosperity of our great trading nation.  Over the coming months, I look forward to working with George on building on the momentum to turn that shared vision into a shared reality.”
