Mr Buchan said: “It is a privilege to be appointed as Chair of Port of Aberdeen and to follow Alistair who has led the board with distinction. This is a pivotal time in the port’s almost 900 years of history. I look forward to working with Bob Sanguinetti, the board and our stakeholders to seize the opportunities presented by the nation’s drive to net zero and achieving energy security.”

Ms Rees said: “Port of Aberdeen has a rich heritage and I’m delighted to help shape its exciting future. There is a real opportunity for Aberdeen to be a global energy hub for the next 50 years, leading the transition to cleaner, renewable energies, with the port at its heart.”
