The new port and logistics centre, which will be built on the north bank of the Thames estuary, is part of the worldwide DP World portfolio. Nixon’s duties will be to secure business for the port and the park, to develop long-term relationships and to deliver a high-quality service to customers.
He has international management experience in developing global commercial and operational business systems and managing terminals, depots, container operations and associated intermodal movements. His work has been predominantly UK-based but he has had postings in Hong Kong, managing the Greater China Operations, and the USA, where he was responsible for developing global commercial and operational business systems.
Nixon said: “London Gateway is unique in its scale and will have a positive impact on the logistics industry as well as the UK economy. This is a fantastic opportunity to modernise this industry and to take it to new levels of efficiency and customer service.”
