New CEO for Port of Melbourne

The Lonsdale Consortium has announced the appointment of Brendan Bourke as incoming Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Port of Melbourne to be effective from financial close of the 50 year lease transaction with the Victorian Government (expected to be 31 October 2016).

Bourke, whose corporate career spans over 35 years, brings a wealth of infrastructure expertise including as the former CEO of Queensland Motorways where he oversaw the successful transition of the business from government to private ownership. Bourke was also the former Chief Operating Officer of Transurban Group, with responsibilities including serving as CEO of CityLink Melbourne for almost nine years.

“As Australia’s largest container, automotive and general cargo port, the Port of Melbourne is a truly landmark asset and I am delighted to be joining as CEO at this exciting time in the Port of Melbourne’s proud history. I look forward to leading the organisation and working with all stakeholders to ensure the Port upholds its track record of providing world class facilities and services to industry and being a responsible neighbour within the community.” Bourke said.

The Lonsdale Consortium sincerely extends its thanks to the outgoing CEO, Nick Easy, for the important role he has played in the evolution of the Port of Melbourne and wishes him all the best for the next stage in his career.
