Santiago Garcia-Milà Elected Chairman of ESPO


The Deputy Director General of Barcelona Port Authority succeeds Victor Schoenmakers, Director Europe and International Affairs of the Port of Rotterdam, who chaired the organisation during the past four years. Mr Garcia-Milà is a long-standing member of ESPO, where he chaired for several years the organisation’s Intermodal and Logistics Committee. Next to his functions in the Port of Barcelona and ESPO, he is also Vice-President of the International Association of Ports and Harbours (IAPH) and Secretary of Intermed, the North-West Mediterranean Ports Association.
“I am very honoured to take on the Chairmanship of ESPO”, said Mr Garcia-Milà, “I fully realise that the start of my mandate coincides with the challenging prospect of reviewing Europe’s policy for ports. It is important that ESPO provides a coordinated response to the review, underlining the need for a proportional policy that supports the developer role of port authorities.”
The newly elected Chairman also paid tribute to his predecessor, Victor Schoenmakers, who will remain active in ESPO as Chairman of the Port Governance Committee. The General Assembly furthermore elected Eamonn O’Reilly, Chief Executive of the Port of Dublin, and Julian Skelnik, Marketing Director of the Port of Gdansk, as Vice-Chairmen.
Tonight, ESPO will be celebrating the fourth edition of its Award on Societal Integration of Ports. Commission Vice-President Siim Kallas will announce the winner of this year’s competition, which revolves around the theme ‘youth’.
