New Newlyn harbour master


Newlyn Pier & Harbour Commissioners (NP & HC) has appointed a new harbour master and CEO.

Cliff Brand, who is originally from the north east, is an experienced harbour master whose previous job roles have included CEO of Gibraltar Port Authority; Harbour Master of Harwich Haven Authority and CEO of RAK Ports, the maritime gateway to the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah.

Prior to leading the development of multi-million-pound ports, he served as master in the Merchant Navy for several years. Before that, he skippered both deep-water and near-water fishing vessels.

Meanwhile, Roger Nowell has been appointed to the role of deputy harbour master, joining Jedna Hall who is already in post.

Having skippered small inshore vessels and large beam trawlers, he is a well-respected fisherman and is ideally placed to come ashore and manage the harbour’s quays.

NP & HC chairman Rob Wing said: “We are delighted to welcome Cliff and Roger to the Newlyn Harbour team at an important moment in our history and look forward to working with them to safeguard and develop the port for the future.”
