Meet the team at Montrose

Our success as a respected and forward thinking port is predominantly due to the level of service we provide, but also down to the people working here.

We have a close-knit team from top to bottom who know that as a Trust Port, the fruits of their labours are all reinvested in the Port.

As well as our staff we have a board of enthusiastic people who take a keen interest in the day to day running of the Port. They have a wide range of experience and expertise which is always available to help with operations.


The Board

Our non-executive directors

Montrose Port Authority has operated as a Trust Port for nearly 200 years. During that time the Trust Board has used its wide range of knowledge and experience to steer the management and development of Montrose Port into the 21st century port we see today.

The Board brings a wide range of management and specialist expertise to Montrose Port, and all trustees share the fundamental aim to maintain, improve and develop the Port.

The ships he worked on would often visit Montrose Port, and it was this which first inspired him to think about the possibility of an onshore role in this part of the world. When he saw his current pilot role advertised in the Summer he jumped at the chance to apply.
