DP World Santos has announced that its current CEO Ernst Schulze is stepping down in order to take up another role in the DP World group.
The Brazilian terminal will now be run by Dallas Hampton, an Australian who worked his way up from a shift manager in Australia to manage various terminals across the world.
Between 1999 and 2009, Hampton held management positions at terminals in Australia, the Philippines and DP World Constanta in Romania. In 2006, he studied container terminal business management at the DP World Institute in Dubai.
After this, he spent seven years with APM Terminals as managing director of its terminals in Kaohsiung, Apapa and Callao before a year in charge of a consultancy business.
“I take office with the mission of consolidating the new company and maintaining the terminal’s high level of operating efficiency, while diversifying the business, which has been one of the biggest challenges of recent years,” said Dallas.
