The requirements of the role have recently been evaluated and enhanced to identify a candidate that will assist the Authority in achieving its growth, development, and profitability objectives, as well as carry out its Strategic Vision, Mission, and Values.
The PACI is currently undergoing an Organisational Performance Evaluation to identify opportunities for efficiency to facilitate growth, development, and overall profitability.
At a strategic retreat hosted by Board Members in Cayman Brac over March 6-7th, opportunities and challenges were discussed, as well as the overall direction of the PACI and the impact change will have within the Organisation and the Country. Attendees included Hon. Minister Kirkconnell, Councillor Joey Hew and Chief Officer Bodden, from the Ministry of Tourism, along with Members of the PACI Board and Senior Management team.
Commenting on the retreat, the Chairman of the Board, Mr. Errol Bush noted, “Not only do we want to make sure the Organisation is aligned to achieve our Strategic Vision, Mission, and Values, we also want to ensure our people have the skillsets and resources required to operate efficiently and safely to facilitate the future development of cargo, cruise, and commercial operations.”
To identify the ideal candidate for the Port Director role, each Board Member, as well as key stakeholders that interact with the Port on a day-to-day basis, were interviewed individually. During this process, emerging themes were identified that clearly outlined the expectations for the Port Director role and the key attributes that would be necessary to lead the Organisation through the anticipated change and beyond. Some of the themes included a need for a strategic, transformational leader, as well as a leader that would be an Ambassador for the Country in all aspects of the Port Operations; with a particular emphasis on building solid relationships not only locally, but globally as well.
Based on the feedback from the Ministry, Board Members, and key stakeholders it was concluded that the majority of those interviewed identified that Port Operations experience is preferred, but is not necessarily required, since there is strong technical port operations experience already within the PACI organisation.
“We are fortunate to have a large number of long-serving, dedicated employees that possess strong, technical skillsets within the Port and now what we are looking for is a strategic leader,” confirmed Mr. Bush. “The Board Members are committed to identifying the best candidate to fulfill this important role and lead the PACI forward,” he said.
The job description and responsibilities for the Port Director role was crafted by the Board Members using the themes identified during the interview process referred to above. The closing date for receipt of applications is 10th April, 2015.
