The International Association of Ports and Harbors (IAPH) is seeking a secretary general to take responsibility for the internal management of the organisation, including the administration of the secretarial and financial affairs.

Candidates are being sought for the role, which has both a significant leadership and operational component, as the current secretary general, Susumu Naruse, is to retire from the organisation in May.

IAPH stated that the role “requires an active and prudent individual who has international experience in the port sector and has profound knowledge about the accounting system, administration and finance of an international membership-based non-profit association.”

The secretary general reports to the president and board of executive directors and is a member of the council.

Candidates must be full-time residents of Japan, in which the head office is located, and administer the secretariat staff.

IAPH represents the interests of port authorities and associated maritime industries. The association has 166 member ports, plus 137 associate members in around 90 countries.

The organisation has been serving its members for over 60 years through the sharing of information, and the work of its technical committees. In addition, the association holds regular regional and world conferences.
