New Ferry Port Manager Announced at Portsmouth International Port

4th February 2015
New Ferry Port Manager Announced at Portsmouth International Port

#portsmouth – Portsmouth International Port on the UK south coast has a new Ferry Port Manager, although the man now in charge of all ferry operations certainly isn't a new face at the Port.

Kalvin Baugh joined the team at Portsmouth in 2008 as Deputy Ferry Port Manager. His promotion comes after seven years of hard work, and is at a challenging time for the ferry industry given the current economic climate and the continued environmental challenges.

Kalvin was born and grew up near Cardigan, West Wales. After leaving school aged 18 he joined Cunard as an Engineer Cadet. The apprenticeship led to a role as Engineering Officer four years later.

In 1985 Kalvin moved to Portsmouth, taking a job with the Ministry of Defence at HM Naval Base. Five years later he went back to sea, working for companies such as Geest, Nissan, and Thames Water. In 1994 Kalvin started work for United Marine Dredging, part of the TARMAC Group and spent 15 years as the company's Marine Operations Manager based in Chichester.

Kalvin says, "There's never a dull moment working at Portsmouth International Port. No two days are ever the same for me. My main aim is to help to ensure we always provide an excellent service for passengers and operators, whatever challenges we face."
