Mark beats 200 others to scoop Harbour Master of the Year title

Long-serving ABP employee Mark Collier has been named UK Ports Harbour Master of the Year 2022 from a field of 200 nominations.

The long-serving ABP employee works as Dock Master Humber and Harbour Master (Lower Ouse), and has been working in the region for 20 years. He received the  title at an awards ceremony in Canary Wharf, London. He was one of over 200 nominated for the award.

Simon Bird, Regional Director of the Humber ports said: “This is such a great accolade for Mark, and I’m delighted he won it, and it came to the Humber. He’s been in this job for such a long time and loves the role. He is very dedicated and knowledgeable and is a worthy winner.”

Mark added: “It was such a big surprise to win, but I want to emphasise it’s a team effort. Everyone’s name in the Humber is on this award, which means a lot as it means we are doing something right.

“It’s humbling to receive such an endorsement from our customers and industry who voted for me and thank you to the panel of judges for selecting me.”

Hull-born Mark began his marine career in 1987, serving first as Fisheries Officer in the Falkland Islands, before progressing to Assistant Port Manager. He returned to the UK in 2001 and then applied for a job as Berthing Master with ABP in 2003, before progressing to Dock Master.
