PD Ports’ Director and General Manager of the Humber, Paul McGrath, has recently been appointed to the regional advisory board for Business in the Community (BITC).
Business in the Community, one of The Prince’s Charities, is a business-led charity committed to shaping a new contract between business and society. With over 30 years’ experience forging better relationships between business and society, Business in the Community is driven by a unique collaboration of business leaders.
Mr McGrath will sit on the Yorkshire and Humber Advisory Board from January with representatives from local companies such as Kelda Group, Irwin Mitchell and BT. This new role will see Mr McGrath taking part in quarterly board meetings to discuss the community and environmental issues facing the area and propose ways to help tackle these issues through business.
Liz Needleman, Area Director for BITC England East, said: “I am delighted that Paul has agreed to join our Yorkshire & Humber Advisory Board. He has already demonstrated leadership on the Responsible Business agenda, and I’m sure he will make a very valuable contribution to our thinking going forward.”
Paul McGrath commented on his appointment: “I’m really proud to have been given this opportunity to work closely with BITC in the Humber area. As a Company, PD Ports has successfully engaged with BITC on a number of projects in the North for many years. Now we have an opportunity to share our experience and best practise and support BITC activities across the Humber.”
