Presenters


John Fitzgerald; Director, Associated British PortsJohn Fitzgerald

John Fitzgerald is Associated British Ports’ Director Humber. He joined ABP in 1997 and has held board positions since 2004. In February 2008 he was appointed Port Director for Grimsby & Immingham, the UK’s busiest port handling more than 54 million tonnes of cargo a year. In September 2013 ABP’s operations throughout the Humber, which include Ports of Hull, Goole, Grimsby and Immingham as well as Humber Estuary Services, were unified into a single directorate under John’s leadership.

The recently confirmed Green Port Hull offshore wind project will establish the port at the centre of the developing offshore wind industry and has the potential to have a transformational effect on the economy of the Humber region.

The Humber is the UK’s busiest commercial estuary. The 84 million tonnes plus traffic which flows though the 20 plus port facilities accounts for over 16% of Britain’s trade per year.
