McGill moves into ports and terminals

McGill and Partners has expanded its marine offering to include a dedicated ports and terminals team.

Julien Hubbard will be leading the team, as head of ports and terminals, while Mark McKinnell, Daniel Wells, Alex Jonesco, Dan Green and Elena Stefanova join him to support the new offering.

Hubbard joins from Tysers where he led the drive into marine liabilities, ports and terminals and war risks for the last 19 years. While at Tysers he was also a member of the marine, aviation and terrorism board and was instrumental in the successful push into Asia and Latin America. Earlier in his 33-year career, he was a marine broker with CE Heath and latterly Miller.

“I am looking forward to heading up this immensely capable team and expanding McGill and Partners’ marine team with this new line of business," he said. "It is an exciting time to join a firm that is going from strength to strength, I look forward to being part of the wider team as we continue to broaden the scope of what McGill and Partners offers its clients and partners.”

Gordon Longley, head of marine and cargo at McGill and Partners added: “Julien, Mark, Daniel, Alex, Dan and Elena bring a wealth of experience in ports and terminals and having a team of dedicated experts in this area also complements our existing marine expertise. I am delighted to welcome them on board and look forward working with them as they play their part in the development and growth of the McGill and Partners.”
