COO Paul to leave Rotterdam Port

(Posted on 01/05/20)

Ronald Paul, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of the Port of Rotterdam Authority, will be retiring from senior management in September of this year, after eight years in this role. At the request of the Supervisory Board, Mr Paul will remain available as an adviser to the Port Authority for another six months. He will be supporting the company with a number of dossiers, including the current public health crisis and its consequences. 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.’

Miriam Maes, the Chair of the Supervisory Board, has also taken this opportunity to sincerely thank Ronald Paul on behalf of the Supervisory Board for his dedication and accomplishments: ‘We owe him a debt of gratitude for his strong commitment, impact and contributions during his 35 years in the service of the Port Authority. We appreciate that Ronald will be sharing his extensive knowledge and experience for some time after stepping down, in his role as adviser to the Port of Rotterdam Authority.’
