Our list concentrates on the individuals who make a real difference to the North East, and the C-D section of the list includes a number of our region's MPs, business leaders and leading figures in the worlds of sport, education and transport. Each entry is a brief summary of their career and not intended to be exhaustive biographies. Time Line FRANS CALJE: Chief executive, PD Ports Group Mr Calje joined PD Ports in 2008 and became chief executive in 2017. He started his career at the Port of Rotterdam, bringing considerable experience in the development of container terminals throughout Europe and the USA.

PAUL CALLAGHAN: Chairman, The Leighton Group Mr Callaghan co-founded the Leighton Group, and is a trustee of Sunderland Culture, Live Theatre and the Sunderland Music, Arts and Culture Trust. He is also a director of PubCulture, which has a portfolio of pubs around the region.
