A ship-shape new job for John

John Mawer has officially taken on the role of ‘Head of Cruise Operations’ at the Liverpool Cruise Line Terminal.

John has been responsible for the cruise terminal’s day-to-day running since 2017. During the pandemic, when all cruise activity was suspended, he was on hand to take on other projects to help the city and the council through the first few months of lockdown and his input was invaluable, as was the experience he gained.

With the return of cruises, John will now play a more prominent role in shaping an even bigger and better offering for passengers, whether they are visiting Liverpool, or starting or ending their journeys in the city. With 2021 delivering a bumper season, despite the challenges, the cruise sector is on course to once again be a key part of the city’s economy. John will also work with operators to devise opportunities to minimise the environmental impact of cruise ships going forward.

Angie Redhead, Divisional Manager City Assets, Cruise, City Halls & TICs, said:

“I am delighted for John who works extremely hard, every day to give operators and visitors alike a fantastic experience in Liverpool. I know he is excited as I am for this opportunity to further develop Liverpool’s cruise offer, helping us to take full advantage of the economic and cultural benefits it will bring us. The sea’s the limit!”
