CONGRATULATIONS recently went out to the Port of PE’s senior operations manager, Captain Faisal Sultan (master mariner), on his appointment as chairperson of the Nelson Mandela Bay Maritime Cluster.

He will lead the new leadership team of seven members, providing strategic direction to achieve the cluster’s vision.

Volunteering their time and expertise, they will focus on the implementation of the cluster’s strategic goals and objectives.

The team consists of: Captain Faisal Sultan (chairperson, representing Transnet National Ports Authority), Derek Zimmerman (deputy chairperson, representing Rand International Capital), Jeremy Dobbin (secretary, representing the NMB Business Chamber), Mohammed Riedau de Maine (Eastern & Southern Cape Pelagic Association), Lusanda Fibi (Iya Group), John Lawlor (East Cape Business Development Advisory Board) and Tasneem De Maine (Solutions 2 Go (Pty) Ltd).

The cluster’s key objectives include:

. Enhancing enterprise development through the promotion of small businesses, BBBEE, women and the provision of funding;

. Developing human resources through education, skills development, training and knowledge development;

. Aligning government, the private sector, academia, and civil society in its approach;
