Ronald Paul will be taking leave of the Port Authority after more than 35 years in its service.

Looking back on his time at the Port Authority, Ronald Paul said: ‘I have worked with a great deal of pleasure and enthusiasm for the Port Authority for many years, including eight years on the Executive Board and eight years on the Maasvlakte 2 project. I feel truly privileged that I have had the chance to work together with so many passionate colleagues, clients and business relations. I wish to express my gratitude and appreciation for the trust they have put in me.’

Allard Castelein, CEO of the Port of Rotterdam Authority, on Ronald Paul’s upcoming retirement: ‘I am extraordinarily grateful to Ronald for everything he has done for the port of Rotterdam. As COO, he has made an outstanding contribution to the further professionalisation of our company and reputation among our clients and stakeholders.’
