Port of Tyne appoints commercial expert to leadership team

The Port of Tyne has appointed Charlotte Brown as chief commercial officer to head its commercial team.

Charlotte brings more than 20 years’ experience in the energy, maritime, engineering and technology sectors to her role at the port.

She has held a range of commercial roles at companies including Honeywell, Fujitsu, and DNV, and was most recently employed as sector director for energy at international analytics and data science consulting services company Cap Gemini Group.

Matt Beeton, Port of Tyne chief executive, said: “Charlotte is a fantastic addition to the leadership team, and we are delighted to have her on board.

“Charlotte’s extensive experience across the technology and energy sectors will be invaluable in supporting the port to grow and achieve our Tyne 2050 objectives.”

Charlotte brings a wealth of knowledge in growing and developing businesses across the IT and energy sectors from previous sales and divisional director roles in the UK, Europe and the Middle East.

Her cross-sector career has seen Charlotte implement innovation strategies using AI and machine learning, knowledge which she is keen to call upon in her role at the port.

She added: “It is a really exciting time to be joining the port and the Tyne 2050 journey towards being a world leader in collaboration, innovation with sustainability at our core.

“I have been lucky to work in organisations across a range of maturity levels and I am looking forward to bringing together my extensive commercial and technological experience to cement the port in leading the way in its sector and beyond.”
