Newly appointed Chief Executive Tom Willis has officially taken the leadership of the Shoreham Port (UK) team following the departure of Rodney Lunn, who left the Port in mid-December of 2019.
From transporting post, to people, and now to port cargo, Willis is experienced in the fields of transport and security within complex, regulated environments.
Willis comes from an operational and logistics background, having previously worked with Heathrow Airport for 8 years, joining the organisation during the exciting time of the 2012 London Olympic Games to become Operations Director at the Airport, and later on Security Director, accountable for the protection of 75 million passengers per year.
Prior to this, Willis spent 13 years with Royal Mail, joining via their graduate programme and working his way to Operations Director South East England. He holds an MBA from City Business School (CASS) and an MSc from Henley.
Willis commented: “I am very happy to have joined the Port in November and I have been enjoying getting to know the team these past months; meeting colleagues from all of the departments at the Port, who have an inspiring commitment to their roles.”
Amber Foster, Chair of Shoreham Port, said: “We would like to extend a very warm welcome to Tom. Since joining for his handover in November, Tom has shown a clear enthusiasm for all aspects of the Port’s operations and we are confident he will add considerable value to the team.”
