ABP Strengthens Property Team with Appointment of Development Manager

Associated British Ports (ABP), a significant commercial landowner in the UK, continues to fortify its property team with the transition of Ben St-Quintin into the Wales & Short Sea Ports region as the new Lead Property Development Manager. In his capacity, Ben will spearhead endeavors across ABP’s UK property portfolio, encompassing 16 ports in Wales, the Southwest, East Anglia, the Northwest, and Scotland.

Ben, a Chartered Surveyor, has served with ABP as a Property Development Manager since December 2021. Prior to his tenure at ABP, Ben held the position of Partner at Alder King Property Consultants, amassing extensive experience in leading significant acquisitions and disposals, alongside managing pre-development technical and planning affairs.

In his new role at ABP, Ben brings his wealth of expertise to drive the execution and advancement of surplus land and assets, steering initiatives to develop new facilities for current and potential customers, particularly those associated with renewable and alternative energy projects.

Helen Thomas, Head of Property (Wales and Short Sea Ports), expressed her satisfaction, stating, “I am delighted to welcome Ben to the team. With more than 600 acres of available development land across ABP’s Wales and Short Sea Ports portfolio, Ben will play an important role in turning asset management opportunities into deliverable schemes through expertise in site feasibility, viability, planning, and funding.”

Commenting on his new role, Ben St Quintin said, “I am pleased to be moving into this new role in ABP’s dynamic and forward-thinking property team. In particular, I will be leading an investment program to deliver multiple brownfield sites across a geographically diverse group of ports, to help unlock development land for deals relating to property and port-related manufacturing as well as renewable and alternative energy.”

ABP’s Property team aims to broaden its reach and appeal to new customers. This new position, created as part of the realignment of the property strategy, will be pivotal in reinforcing ABP’s position as a significant player in driving positive change within the property development landscape.
