Ports America, the largest marine terminal operator and stevedore in North America, today announced the appointment of Peter Levesque as president. Levesque will join Ports America in February 2020 and will report to Mark Montgomery, who will continue in the role of chief executive officer.
New Jersey-headquartered Ports America is a leader in generating Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) and the largest independent U.S. marine terminal operator and stevedore company, operating in more than 42 ports and 80 locations. The company provides services for all types of cargo, including container, bulk, breakbulk, automotive, project, military, cruise terminals, intermodal facilities, Ro/Ro operations, and a vast range of M&R services. Ports America handles 10.5 million tons of general cargo annually.
Since 2016, Levesque has worked for Modern Terminals Limited in Hong Kong, as group managing director and CEO. He brings more than 30 years of maritime industry experience. During his nine-year tenure with Modern Terminals, Levesque led the company through a successful Public Private Partnership in Hong Kong. His extensive industry experience and proven commercial and operational results will serve Ports America well.
“I am thrilled to have Peter be part of our leadership team of the Ports America platform. Ports America remains focused on providing best-in-class service to many of the world’s leading shipping lines as well as the work we have completed in improving workflow solutions to beneficial cargo owners to drive dramatic growth for the company,” said Ports America CEO Mark Montgomery.
Ports America has a proven track record of delivering the highest quality operations for our customers combined with an unparalleled focus on the safety of its employees. The company is the unrivalled leader in the North American marine terminal sector with its tri-coastal footprint handling containers, roll-on/roll-off and breakbulk/heavy lift cargo and cruise passengers.
