A Conversation With Peter Levesque

Tuesday, 28 February

10:30 am - 11:00 am (PST) / 28/feb/2023 06:30 pm - 28/feb/2023 07:00 pm
In recruiting Peter Levesque as its new North America president, CMA CGM has gained a seasoned executive with a deep background in third-party logistics and terminal operations, as the company diversifies in logistics and takes control of two terminals at the Port of New York and New Jersey. Levesque, a nonfiction and fiction author, also comes with political savvy after stints chairing the American Chamber of Commerce and steering Modern Terminals for 10 years as chief commercial officer, chief operating officer and CEO. Most recently, Peter was president of Ports America, where he led the 2021 sale of North America’s largest marine terminal operator to the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board. He previously served in senior roles at APL Logistics, DHL and CEVA Logistics, now a unit of CMA CGM. He is the author of the 2011 book The Shipping Point: The Rise of China and the Future of Retail Supply Chain Management, and more recently the 2022 thriller Two if By Sea, in which a “wave of gruesome executions in Shanghai cripples a top-secret CIA operation in China and point to an informant who has been selling secrets in Hong Kong.”
