Milne joins ABP’s Humber team

Associated British Ports continues to build its real estate division, bringing in Andrew Milne as lead property development manager.

ABP said Milne will help drive the success of the future property development pipeline and revenue growth.

Milne is a chartered surveyor and joins from Muse where he worked in the Yorkshire and North East office as senior development manager.

Prior to that, he worked at HBD where he worked for six years on mixed-use developments from industrial to office schemes.

Milne’s joining follows that of ex-CEG man Rob Morton, who started work with ABP in September last year as lead asset manager for the Humber ports.

Working from the Hull and Immingham offices, Milne 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 port operator.

These include the recently acquired 230 acres of Enterprise Zone land at Stallingborough Interchange, and Humber International Enterprise Park.

Director Simon Bird 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.”

Milne 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.”
