HONG KONG's Modern Terminals has announced that managing director Peter Levesque has decided to leave the company at the end of January 2020 in order to return to the United States.

Mr Levesque has lived in Asia for 25 years, having joined Modern Terminals in 2010 as chief commercial officer, rising to chief operating officer in 2015 before becoming managing director in 2016.



Former Modern Terminals engineering chief Horace Lo, who has been with the company since 1995, will take over as managing director in February.



Mr Levesque returns to the US to be become president of Ports America Group, the biggest port operator in the United States based in Jersey City, NJ.



He then led the company in the formation of the Hong Kong Seaport Alliance which was formally launched in April.



Looking ahead, his successor Mr Lo said: 'While we are facing many challenges in this difficult market, I'm confident that with our solid and professional team we will navigate through them successfully together with our customers and other stakeholders.'.
