Captain Alexander Simpson named Harbourmaster
The Board of Lerwick Port Authority has announced the appointment of Captain Alexander Simpson as Harbourmaster.
A Master Mariner, Alexander joined Lerwick Port Authority as Deputy Harbourmaster in October 2008, following his time in the merchant navy, working up to Captain on container vessels trading worldwide. He succeeds Captain Calum Grains, previously Harbourmaster and Deputy Chief Executive until taking over as Chief Executive in November.
Captain Grains said: "Alexander is already an established, experienced member of our team, positioned for his new role in a port handling record cruise traffic, developing further involvement in offshore decommissioning and building a new white fish market for increasing landings.”
