Graham Grant, the Port of Cromarty Firth’s Marine Support Manager, has been appointed to the National Council of the UK Harbour Masters’ Association (UKHMA).

Graham has worked for the Port of Cromarty Firth for 36 years, having worked across all of the Port’s marine operations functions. In his current role, he leads a team of marine professionals responsible for oversight and management of day-to-day marine operations within the Cromarty Firth. These include responsibilities as diverse as piloting, conservancy, project management and emergency planning.

Graham said: “It is an honour and a privilege to be appointed to National Council and one of my career highlights. The UKHMA has played a significant part in my personal development not only through the UK Harbour Masters’ Certificate but also the advice and experience that is so freely imparted by my peers in other Ports and Harbours.

“The Council has a hugely significant part to play in promoting best practice and continuous improvement in an industry that is key to the economic prosperity of the UK, as well as in maintaining an industry wide culture of high safety standards. I look forward to working with my colleagues on the Council in helping to achieve these aims and to supporting the next generation of harbour masters in their career development.”

The UKHMA consists of harbour masters from publicly owned, privately owned and trust ports across the UK, representing a unique source of relevant experience in a range of port and marine operations. Formed in 1993, its main objective is to encourage the safe and efficient conduct of marine operations in ports and harbours and to promote the interests and professional competence of harbour masters.

The UKHMA is widely acknowledged as a competent partner in the shipping and port industry throughout the UK, while its wealth of experience is sought after and highly appreciated in many inter-industry forums, working groups and consultations.

Bob Buskie, Chief Executive of the Port of Cromarty Firth, said: “We are delighted for Graham. It is testament to his hard work and dedication to his role at Port of Cromarty Firth that he is being recognised at a national level. His appointment is a fitting reward for his commitment to the ports industry, as well as his 36 years of sterling service to the Port of Cromarty Firth.”
