ALAN Motterham has retired after 20 years at Shoreham Port.
He joined in 1997, initially as Resources Manager where he was responsible for managing the workforce, ensuring customers had sufficient labour to assist them with their requirements.
He was promoted to General Manager Operations in 2003 and for the last decade has led the Operations Division as Commercial and Operations Director.
He said: “I have really enjoyed my time at Shoreham Port, working alongside some fantastic people and seeing the port grow.
“There have been many positive changes which I am proud to have been a part of.
“We have a great set of customers who I have enjoyed serving and will miss my regular visits to them.”
Alan’s career spans more than 40 years in the ports industry, having previously worked for the port of Sheerness for more than 20 years.
His experience has helped shape the success of Shoreham Port.
Chief Executive Rodney Lunn said: “I would like to offer Alan my sincere thanks for his outstanding contribution to Shoreham Port.
“His knowledge of the port and his industry expertise has been invaluable.
“Alan has done a fantastic job and I wish him all the best for a very happy retirement.”
Under Alan’s leadership operational revenue has significantly increased and the port has considerably diversified, handling a broad range of commodities from timber, steel, crushed glass to rockwool, woodchip and project cargoes.
He passed the leadership of the Commercial and Operations division onto Beth Evans-Gay.
Beth looks forward to building on the strong foundation and continuing to provide a first class service to the port’s customers.
