Since 2013, ESPO has been putting each month a port in the picture through its “port of the month” articles. After four years, we started with a new series of articles called the “port pro of the month”. Every month, we pay a visit to a port executive who will present us his or her port and also help us understand what it means to lead a European port.
Our port pro of the month is Mr. Mike Sellers, Portsmouth International Port Director and Chair of the British Port Association, observer member of ESPO, in the United Kingdom. We discussed with Mike: besides learning more about his port we touched on different interesting topics such as the role of ports as energy hubs, freeports, the cruise sector, and much more.read more
