APM Terminals Bahrain appoints new Managing Director

APM Terminals (APMT) Bahrain, the operating company of Khalifa Bin Salman Port, has announced the appointment of Matthew Luckhurst as the new Managing Director for Bahrain.

Matthew Luckhurst, a British national, joins APMT from his current role as Vice President for Container Shipping at Milaha based in Qatar.

His previous roles included Vice President of Bahri Logistics in Saudi Arabia and Managing Director United Africa Feeder Line out of Mauritius. 

This comes three weeks after APMT Bahrain officially announced the launch of a solar power project.

Additionally, Luckhurst held multiple roles with P&O Nedlloyd and Maersk Line, across East Africa, Indonesia, Korea and Japan, as well as a short role with Kuehne & Nagel in Kenya.

APMT’s Managing Director for Asia and the Middle East, Jon Goldner, made the announcement welcoming Bahrain’s new Managing Director.

Goldner stated: “Matthew brings valuable commercial and business development flare and extensive leadership experience across the Middle East.

“He has a strong background in the maritime sector and its related operations and he is the perfect candidate to propel APM Terminal Bahrain’s future growth.

“Bahrain is a key market within our network, and we are confident that Matthew has the necessary skills to deliver the best results to our valuable customers in the region,” Goldner added.

Matthew Luckhurst takes over from Chief Financial Officer and interim Managing Director Farooq Zuberi, who assumed the role after the previous Managing Director reportedly resigned for personal reasons. 

This month, APMT reached an agreement with the Port of Kalundborg in Denmark to extend the concession of Kalundborg container terminal to 2033.
