In 1932, at the height of the Fifth Aliyah (1929-1939), Moshe Mano’s father, Mordechai Mano, emigrated with his parents from Thessaloniki, Greece to what is now Israel, along with other Greek workers who contributed to the construction of the Port of Haifa.[5]Abba Hushi, who was head of the Workers’ Council in Haifa at the time, traveled to Thessaloniki in order to persuade Jewish workers to make Aliyah.[5] Among the 100 families that agreed to relocate were members of the Mano family including Mordechai, who was only 12 years old at the time. This relocation allowed the families to escape the Holocaust, during which the Jews in Thessaloniki were persecuted and killed.[5]

Mordechai Mano raised a family in Israel and is now considered as one of the pioneers in the maritime transportation field, having founded Mano Maritime enterprises in 1945. He died in 1969, when his son Moshe was only 14 years old.[5] Moshe Mano, the youngest son of Mordechai Mano, was born in Haifa in 1955[1][2] and has lived there ever since. He did his military service in the Israeli Air Force. He is married to Iris Mano, who is responsible for the Mano Group’s Tourism division.[5] His son Moran also works in the family business in the maritime transport field,[3] and another son, Liran, participates in the real estate and entrepreneurship of the Mano Group.[11]

He published an autobiographical book by the name Yamim Soharim (English: Rough seas). [12]

When he was in his early thirties, Moshe Mano decided to carry out his father’s vision and establish a new maritime company. He established Mano Maritime, and the firm subsequently became a subsidiary of the Mano Holdings Group which Mano owns.[5] Over the years, the group has expanded to include additional activities: cargo ships, passenger ships,[10] real estate, hotels in Israel[13] and abroad, technology, communications, etc.[5] The company has a broad network of international relations and cooperates with global maritime companies such as the Japanese transportation company “K” Line and Ocean Network Express (“ONE”). [3][14]

Mano Maritime operates a diversified shipping fleet: container ships, bulk carriers, automobile transport, and other cargo vessels.[3] In 2009, Mano have commenced managing the Golden Iriscruise ship and soon afterwards began operating leading cruises from and to Israel.[15] In 2018 Mano commenced managing the cruise ship Crown Iris. In the real estate field, the company buys and leases commercial buildings, and in 2012 it entered the hotel industry by acquiring hotel properties both locally and internationally.[13]

For the past few years, Moshe Mano, the Mano Group and Mano Maritime Ltd. have been listed among the top 100 companies on the Israeli market in the Dun & Bradstreet ratings in the service & trade category.[8]
