COMMINGS & GOINGS AT THE PORT

With great regret and well wishes, we bid John Driscoll a fond farewell.

Andy takes the helm of the maritime marketing (aka sales) unit of the port and will advance the port’s visibility with cargo owners and other stakeholders. We look forward to working with you Andy.
