8th April 2019 - Press Release

Port of Dover Cargo Limited appoints General Manager ahead of new terminal opening

Nik Scott-Gray has been appointed as the new General Manager for Port of Dover Cargo Limited

In a landmark year when the Port of Dover will open its new state of the art multi-purpose cargo terminal facility as part of its £250 million Dover Western Docks Revival development, the appointment heralds another key component of the next exciting chapter for cargo operations at Dover.

Mr Scott-Gray is currently Chief Executive at Montrose Port Authority in Scotland where he has held the role since May 2015, having overseen the financial performance and driven the strategic direction of a business handling a broad variety of vessels and cargoes. Prior to his time at Montrose, he gained significant terminal management experience working across all aspects of operations on a portfolio of seven ports for Forth Ports Limited.

Barbara Buczek, Chief Commercial Officer, Port of Dover, said: “This is a very exciting year for the long-term future of our cargo business. Since the arrival of Geest in early 2018, we have already seen a 38.6% increase in ship import tonnage and an 8% increase in ship calls. Our customers have great expectations about their future at Dover and I am delighted that we have appointed Nik, someone with the right experience to drive every aspect of the business forward and realise our collective ambitions.”

Nik Scott-Gray said: “I am delighted to be joining Port of Dover Cargo Limited at this watershed moment for the business. With such a fantastic future ahead of it, created by a platform of much-anticipated new facilities and strong customer demand, I look forward to bringing my full industry experience to Dover and delivering on its success.”

Mr Scott-Gray is due to start at Dover in July.
