Following a decade of outstanding service in charge of Australia’s largest container and general cargo port, Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Stephen Bradford will transition to retirement this year, Minister for Ports David Hodgett announced today.

I have greatly enjoyed my work at PoMC but believe now is the time to retire, to spend more time with my family and move to non-executive roles,” Mr Bradford said.

Appointed in January 2004, Mr Bradford guided PoMC through the successful completion of the Channel Deepening Project as part of a billion dollar port investment program, to become one of Victoria’s leading infrastructure delivery agencies.

Stephen has overseen unprecedented trade growth at the Port of Melbourne, helping to secure Victoria’s status as the nation’s freight and logistics capital,” Mr Hodgett said.

I join the port’s customers and community stakeholders in thanking Stephen for his great leadership and integrity in shaping the busiest container and automotive trade hub in Australia to deliver economic benefits both now and in the future.

Stephen has made an enormous contribution to the port and logistics industry and I wish him well in his retirement.”

PoMC Chairman Mark Birrell acknowledged Mr Bradford’s contribution to the corporation.

Stephen can rightly be proud of his considerable achievements and on behalf of the Board I thank him for his dedicated service to PoMC and the wider Victorian community,” Mr Birrell said.

The Board has commenced its search to secure a high calibre executive to lead the organisation in the next stage of its development, including the delivery of the Port Capacity Project. The executive search firm Russell Reynolds Associates has been appointed to undertake this role.”

Mr Bradford will remain as CEO until his retirement later in the year.
