Ports Australia announces leadership change

  • Posted on Tuesday 29th, October 2019.

Ports Australia has welcomed Stewart Lammin as the newly elected Chair of Ports Australia’s Board of Directors.

Lammin’s appointment was announced following the Ports Australia Cocktail Party held at Parliament House, and Annual General Meeting (AGM) at Old Parliament House, Canberra, last week. His election followed the recent retirement of former Chair and Chief Executive Officer of NSW Port Authority, Grant Gilfillan, who has held the position since March of this year.

Lammin has been the CEO for Flinders Port Holdings since March of 2018, previously Flinders General Manager for six years and has been involved in the sector for over 35 years. Stewart said he was excited for the challenge of leading the Board through such important times for the industry.

“With ever-increasing social and political discussion forming around our sector, the voice of Ports Australia will only increase in value,” said Lammin.

“Optimising the efficiency of our nation’s trade, freight and supply chain should be one of Australia’s upmost focuses going forward, and Ports Australia will continue to lead that push.

“The Board will continue to work with management to ensure that Ports Australia’s collective vision for the industry’s future is heard and acted upon.”

Ports Australia CEO, Mike Gallacher, is confident that Lammin’s appointment will ensure the maintenance of strong collaboration between the Board of Directors and management team.

“With over three decades experience in the sector, as well as being the CEO of a thriving port and coming from the position of Deputy Chair, I have no doubt Stewart is the man for the job,” said Gallacher. “We’re heading into exciting times of advancements across the sector, and our members can trust they’ll be heading into those times under a strong leadership team.”
