ABP announces new Chief of Staff

Associated British Ports (ABP) has announced that Paul Bristowe will become its next Chief of Staff.

According to the company, Bristowe brings extensive senior leadership experience from almost a decade with BP and 25 years of service in the Royal Navy.

The Chief of Staff post was formed, according to the corporation, to bring together vital enabling activities such as maritime operations, safety, the environment, and security, which serve as the cornerstone for ABP’s future expansion.

The Chief of Staff will also be the senior executive in charge of ABP’s other marine-focused operations, UK Dredging and marine consultancy ABPmer.

“These missions rely on safe, secure and sustainable operations which is why the Chief of Staff role is so important, bringing a senior leadership focus on key foundational capabilities. I am delighted to welcome Paul Bristowe to the role.”

Bristowe commented: “I’m excited to take up the Chief of Staff role. There’s a tremendous depth of experience across ABP. Leading this new portfolio is an opportunity to bring this expertise together, give it the focus and prominence it deserves as well enhance the sharing of best practices across functions.

“The safety aspect of the Chief of Staff portfolio is absolutely critical, not just to the role itself but to everything that ABP does. Although ABP has made strong progress on our approach to safety, I’m absolutely committed to leading further improvement.”

In June, ABP tested a new workforce scheduling technology developed by Ensemble Analytics, a UK-based business, to improve worker safety and planning.
