New harbour director has commercial experience

GUERNSEY Harbours’ newly-appointed director has been investigating how to generate more money.
Sarah McGreevy, 37, was appointed to the role in May and has been meeting with staff and collecting information about the harbour over the past few weeks.
She has 15 years’ experience in the commercial sector and has previously worked for a telecoms business and a financial services company. But this is the first time she has taken a job in the Civil Service.
Mrs McGreevy said she saw the role as a great opportunity to drive the port forward, maximise its current resources and find new business opportunities.
Under a reorganisation of harbour staff, the traditional harbourmaster role will be changed, with Captain Peter Gill’s successor – when chosen – focusing on the day-to-day maritime operations. The new director has an over-arching view of the harbour, control of the commercial aspects of the business and will set the port’s long-term strategy.
