Liverpool City Council appoints John Mawer as head of cruise operations at the Cruise Liner Terminal
Liverpool City Council has appointed John Mawer as head of cruise operations at the Cruise Liner Terminal. Having been responsible for the day to day running of the terminal since 2017, more recently he took on various projects to help the city and the council through the first months of lockdown.
Mawer commented: “Following a really busy, successful 2021 season, facilitating the safe return of cruise operations, Cruise Liverpool is to set to have an even stronger 2022, with 100-plus cruise operations already scheduled. We look forward to working with cruise operators and ports to devise opportunities to reduce the environmental impact of cruise, whilst balancing the need for the economic benefits and the positive promotion of Liverpool all over the world.”
With the cruise sector already playing a key role in boosting the city’s economy, Mawer will also be involved in longer term plans to deliver a new cruise terminal, which are currently on hold whilst designs are re-assessed in the light of Covid health and safety requirements.
