Non-Executive Board Members, Frank Martin and Erik Østergaard, have both been re-appointed to the Dover Harbour Board (DHB) for a further three years. Their new term lasts until mid-2018.

With the recent announcement that George Jenkins OBE had been re-appointed as Chairman, this is a further sign of Government’s confidence in a Board that continues to lead a period of massive transformation at the Port of Dover, a nationally important piece of infrastructure delivering a resilient operation for the UK’s trade with Europe.

Having committed to DHB’s biggest ever single investment in the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) project, the Board is leading an organisation that is working at the heart of the community with a shared vision for the Port and for Dover that is also delivering for the nation.

George Jenkins, Chairman, Dover Harbour Board, said:

“Together, Frank and Erik continue to bring a wealth of experience to the team. Alongside Frank’s valuable knowledge of the local area, Erik’s industry expertise is equally important for a Port handling £100 billion of the UK’s trade.”

Tim Waggott, Chief Executive, Port of Dover, said:

“I am delighted that Frank and Erik have been re-appointed as members of the Board. Their experience and knowledge has been invaluable as we move forward with the shared vision for the Port together with our customers and community.  This new term of office will mean that they are both here to see the delivery of the first substantial phase of the DWDR project.”
