M. Terrier, 56, has a variety of public and private sector experience, and has been director-general at the Port of Dunkirk since March 2004. He is expected to start his new job in September, following ratification by the French cabinet.
M. Janin, 61, said he was “honoured and proud” to have been responsible for the development of the port since arriving at Marseilles-Fos in December 2005. In addition to overseeing construction of the Fos 2XL container terminal to its near conclusion, he launched the Fos 3XL and Fos 4XL initiatives, which offer the port long-term container capacity. He also announced an extension of the Fos Distriport logistics park, which under his tenure has already welcomed global players such as furniture retailer IKEA.
