Australia: GPC to Have New CEO in September 2013
The Chairman of the Gladstone Ports Corporation, Mr Mark Brodie, announced today that the Corporation will soon commence the search for a new Chief Executive Officer to replace Leo Zussino in September 2013.
Leo Zussino has had a twenty-one (21) year formal involvement with the Gladstone Ports Corporation, first as Chairman for nine (9) years, followed by twelve (12) years as CEO. Mr Zussino’s employment contract expires on 31 August 2013.
“I take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank Leo for the good work he has done during his time at Gladstone Ports Corporation. His passion and determination towards his role is well known and to this end, he has placed Gladstone Ports Corporation in a strong position going forward,” Mr Brodie stated.
“In recent years, the port has experienced strong growth and Leo and his team have implemented and overseen strategies that will allow the organisation to successfully deal with what is anticipated to be a significant increase in trade through the port in the coming years.”
The Gladstone Ports Corporation intends to have an interim CEO in place by June so the new CEO can work alongside Leo Zussino until the end of August to help ensure a smooth transition of leadership of the Gladstone Ports Corporation.
