IAPH initiates search for new secretary general

The International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) has initiated a global search to replace Susumu Naruse as secretary general when he steps down in May.

The global port lobbying association is offering a salary in excess of $100,000 a year for the Tokyo-based position.

Santiago Garcia Milà, IAPH’s president, stated in a release: “The Secretary General’s role has both a significant leadership and operational component. It requires an active and prudent individual who has international experience in the port sector and has profound knowledge about the accounting system, administration and finance of an international membership-based non-profit association.”
