ABP appoints new comms head

(Posted on 08/06/20)

Associated British Ports (ABP) has announced the appointment of Madeleine Hallward as ABP’s new Group Head of Strategic Communications. This is a new role created to develop and drive the new company strategy in three core areas: government relations, external communications and brand development/marketing.

Madeleine will take up the role in July. She is currently a non-executive director on the board of the Office of Rail and Road and was previously Director for Government Affairs for Ford of Britain, where she served for six years on the UK Board. Prior to Ford she worked at Diageo, Bloomberg, Energy UK and NESTA.

Julian Walker, ABP’s Chief Commercial Officer, said: “Central to ABP’s strategy is our ability to build strong engagement and relationships with national and local government, our customers and other key external stakeholders, so we are delighted that Madeleine has chosen to join ABP and lead this part of our new business strategy.”

ABP is the UK’s leading port owner and operator. Its network of 21 ports around Britain offer unparalleled marine, road and rail access to domestic and international markets. ABP also owns the UK’s busiest rail freight terminal at Hams Hall located in the heart of the country.

As a vital part of the supply chains of businesses throughout the nation, ABP’s 21 ports support 119,000 jobs and contribute £7.5 billion to the economy every year, handling £149 billion of trade.
