Multimodal hails its supporters

[ May 2, 2014   //   ]

Frank Robotham was named Multimodal 2014 Personality of the Year in the first-ever Multimodal Awards on Tuesday at a VIP dinner sponsored by DP World London Gateway.

Tesco was recognised for its outstanding contribution to sustainability and environmental performance by a Multimodal Award, in conjunction with the the Freight Transport Assocation, presented by FTA chief executive Theo De Pencier; and DSV won the Outstanding Contribution to Multimodal award, presented by Multimodal Director, Rob Jervis.

Mr Robotham started out in the freight business in 1968 as an office junior in Liverpool, and ultimately became marketing director and later group marketing director at Mersey Docks and Peel Ports. After a hugely successful career in Liverpool, he moved to a similar role at Associated British Ports, and with similar success.

Mr Robotham was a key advisor to the Multimodal team when they launched the show.

A staunch Liverpool supporter , he was delighted to meet one of his heroes – Kevin Keegan, who was providing the entertainment at the Dinner. What is less well known is his musical career as a drummer in a jazz band.

Theo De Pencier described him as: “A true personality in this industry and we, like many others in this room, have been grateful for his knowledge and support over the years.”
