Shoreham Port Appoints Tom Willis as Chief Executive Designate
Following a rigorous recruitment process Shoreham Port are delighted to confirm the appointment of their next Chief Executive, Tom Willis, who will take over the leadership from Rodney Lunn in December 2019.
Tom has a strong operational and logistics background, having spent many years at Heathrow Airport and the Royal Mail. Both seaports and airports have great commonality, with large local footprints that need managing from a stakeholder and environmental perspective, whilst having to provide a first-class service to their customers.
Tom has superb leadership skills, with a strong track record leading a diverse workforce, all with very different skill sets and often very specific job requirements, which positions him well to continue to develop and motivate Shoreham Port’s excellent teams.
Amber Foster, Chair of Shoreham Port said “We are very pleased to confirm Tom’s appointment and look forward to him joining the Port in November and having a comprehensive handover with Rodney. Tom’s skill set and background will complement and build on the Masterplan Rodney and the team have developed and will be able to continue to push Shoreham forward, as a leading south coast port at the forefront of the industry.”
Tom said “I am really looking forward to joining Shoreham Port and standing on Rodney’s shoulders to ensure the Port’s highly motivated teams continue to serve the customers and stakeholders in an efficient and safe manner. The history of the Port is incredible, and I look forward to being able to shape the future direction of such an iconic and valued local landmark, which is at the heart of the community.”
