On the 16th of December, Cameron Thorpe formally took over the position of CEO for DCT Gdansk SA, taking over from Maciek Kwiatkowski, who is retiring.
– I am convinced that I am leaving DCT terminal and its team in good hands – stated Maciek Kwiatkowski, who greatly contributed to the development of DCT Gdansk by finalizing one of the largest projects in Pomerania – the construction of the second berth (T2).
Cameron brings with him 30 years’ experience in the container shipping and terminal industries.
In 2003 he joined DP World as Global Business Development Manager, becoming involved in the evaluation of over a dozen container terminals around the world as the company rapidly expanded.
In 2005 he was appointed General Manager for Constanta Container Terminal in Romania. When the P&O Group was acquired by DPW in 2006 he moved to Australia, to become Director and General Manager in Brisbane.
His next position in 2009 was in Thailand as Chief Executive Officer of LCIT, a joint-venture terminal at Laem Chabang, then in 2013 he accepted the role of Managing Director of DP World Korea and Vice President of PNC, Korea’s largest container terminal. In early 2015 Cameron moved to London Gateway in the UK where he became the CEO.
– I’m very excited by the opportunity that DCT presents – a container terminal that is helping to drive the Polish economy to be more efficient, with a global reputation as the most professional facility in the Baltic Sea. With our T2 facility now open, we will further enhance our excellent customer service and facilitate intermodal trade as the premier hub port in the region – Cameron stated.
Prior to joining the terminal industry Cameron worked for P&O Nedlloyd a global container shipping company. Over a 16 year period he undertook roles covering Country GM, Procurement and Terminal Development in locations as wide ranging as East Africa and continental Europe.
