ShowHide dashboard

Peterhead Port Authority (PPA) wishes to announce the resignation of its Chief Executive Mr Simon George Brebner who has been with the Port since June 2018.

Mr Brebner said: “I would like to place on record my sense of pride with what we have accomplished over the last 5 years. I believe the Port is well positioned to attract new business, sustain the stakeholder base while continuing to maintain the many highly regarded National Standards of accreditation gained during my time.”

PPA Convenor Mr Gavin Thain said: “The Port has faced some fairly challenging conditions over the period of Mr Brebner’s tenure, and we are grateful for his leadership during those times. On behalf of the Board and myself, we wish him every success in the future as he seeks to explore new horizons.”

He went on to say that Mr Stephen Paterson, Chief Financial Officer, will assume the role of Acting Chief Executive in the interim period and immediate future. Mr Paterson has been with PPA for over 30 years and has a wealth of experience in all areas of Port management.

Mr Thain continued: “The Port has a very bright and positive set of opportunities ahead with particular regard to energy transition which includes renewable energy, decommissioning, carbon capture, and hydrogen export. Significantly, the Acorn project has recently received UK Government support and this, in tandem with our traditional stakeholder priorities of fishing and ship repair, all demand our fullest attention. I am confident we have the right team, skillsets, and dedicated workforce in place to more than deliver on our obligations, goals and aspirations."
