Case studies

The challenge

Port of Tyne is a thriving port and key contributor to the North East regional economy. Iain Brockbank and the Warren Partners’ Industrial Practice worked with the Chair and Board to define a clear brief and candidate profile for the new CEO at a critical period. A dynamic, highly credible leader with a fresh commercial approach and exceptional stakeholder engagement skills was required to lead the Port into a new era.

The outcome

Our search covered numerous sectors and we made full use of our senior network to identify leaders with the right blend of skills and approach. We are proud to have presented a truly diverse shortlist and the successful candidate commenced in post in 2019. The impact on the Port has been significant including a revitalised team, a clear strategy and vision, and a major new contract won that will create new jobs in the region.
