Associated British Ports (ABP) has appointed Andrew Milne as Lead Property Development Manager for the Humber to help drive the success of the future property development pipeline and revenue growth.

Andrew is a Chartered Surveyor and comes to ABP from Muse where he worked in the Yorkshire and North East office as senior development manager. Muse is part of Morgan Sindall’s regeneration arm. His previous role was at national developer HBD where he worked for six years on mixed use developments from industrial to office schemes.

Based in the Humber, Andrew will be dealing with the direct development of land and property opportunities which come forward to expand ABP’s own direct development and bring forward some of the significant development sites owned by the UK’s major port operator, including the recent acquisition at Stallingborough Interchange and HIEP (Humber International Enterprise Park).

Simon Bird, Regional Director for the Humber, said: “I’m delighted that Andrew has joined us at an exciting time in the business, as we drive forward the new property strategy to unlock new growth gateways.

We have a strong focus on sustainability and enabling the UK’s clean air transition, and Andrew’s role will be a critical one by looking at sustainable solutions for our developments.”

Andrew Milne, Lead Property Development Manager (Humber), said: “I’m excited to be joining ABP with some strategically important development sites coming forward and their focus on sustainability and innovating in the renewable energy sectors. It is a great opportunity, and I am looking forward to playing a part in ABP’s journey.”

Greg Lacey, Head of Property (Humber) said: “I am delighted to have Andrew on board, who joins as we enter the exciting implementation phase of our new property strategy. We hold significant strategic land parcels on both sides of the Humber and now have the foundations in place across our estates, asset, and development management teams to secure and deliver major opportunities for the Humber region.

“We are not standing still and our hugely ambitious for ABP; accordingly, Andrew will also be instrumental in working closely with our asset management team in sourcing new investments and further strategic land opportunities to accelerate the growth of ABP, particularly linking into the wider ABP strategy which will be launched later this year.”

Based in ABP’s Hull and Immingham offices, Andrew’s newly created role will strengthen the company’s property capabilities and bolster its new business opportunities portfolio.

The ABP Property team is looking to broaden its reach and seek new customers. ABP is one of the UK’s largest property and landowners.

The new position has been created following the realignment of the property strategy and is central to the success of the future ABP property development pipeline and revenue growth.
