The current chair of Port of Cork, John Mullins, will step down on February 26 after eight years in the role.
As reported by The Irish Examiner, the process to recruit a replacement for Mullins has started, and the Public Appointments Service is expected to advertise the role in the coming days.
Mullins served two terms as chair of Port of Cork, the first of which began in 2013.
"Strong Commitment And Valuable Service"
The Irish Examiner quotes transport minister Eamon Ryan as saying, "I would like to take the opportunity to thank Mr. Mullins for his strong commitment and valuable service on the board of the Port of Cork and in particular his stewardship of the development of the port's facilities at Ringaskiddy."
Meanwhile, recently-appointed Port of Cork chief executive Eoin McGettigan stated, "He has provided valuable assistance in the growth of the port business and the development of port facilities, during the most transformational period for the port. On behalf of the board of directors, I would like to thank John for his unwavering commitment."
