The change took place following the decision of the outgoing President Carla Salvadό to leave her office at Port of Barcelona. Salvadό has since joined Global Ports, another MedCruise member.
The Port of Barcelona will retain a post at the MedCruise Board of Directors, represented by another person that the port will appoint over the next days.
Pavić was the senior vice president of MedCruise, representing the port of Dubrovnik.
Following his nomination Kristijan Pavić said:
“All ports in the Med and me personally are committed to continue the excellent MedCruise work of the recent past, aiming to advance the scopes of the Association. MedCruise is celebrating 20 years of serving the needs of the ports and the cruise industry in the region, with a membership that spans in 20 countries. I am honoured to assume the Presidency of this vibrant association, dedicated to work in order to achieve a sustainable and responsible growth of cruise activities in the Med and its adjoining seas. I would like to express my gratitude to Carla Salvadό for the leadership and her excellent work throughout her Presidency, and I look forward to work with a devoted family of more than 100 cruise ports and 35 associates in order to continue the same successful and beneficial for all strategy”.
