New Port of Melbourne CEO Announced (Australia)

The Victorian Coalition Government has announced that Nick Easy has been appointed as CEO of the Port of Melbourne Corporation, Minister for Ports David Hodgett announced today.

I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Nick Easy as the CEO of the Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC), following the PoMC Board recommendation,” Mr Hodgett said.

Mr Easy previously worked at the Port of Melbourne in a number of senior executive positions, where he also oversaw the Channel Deepening Project. He will step into his new role at a critical time for the Port in its growth.

“With the $1.6 billion Port Capacity Project underway, Mr Easy takes on the position at a time when the Victorian Coalition Government is committed to increasing the capacity of our container trade, and cementing Victoria’s position as the freight and logistics capital of Australia.”

As well as previously working for the PoMC in senior management, Mr Easy also worked in local government for a decade, and most recently as CEO of the Metropolitan Fire Brigade (MFB) leading an organization of 2,300 staff delivering emergency services to the Victorian community. He has a Bachelor of Applied Science (Planning) degree and a Post Graduate Diploma in Environmental Management.

Port of Melbourne Corporation Chairman Mark Birrell said that the Port of Melbourne Board undertook an extensive recruitment and selection process and was very pleased to recommend Nick Easy to the Victorian Government for appointment.

“The Board looks forward to Nick commencing in the role and provide strong leadership to the Corporation at this important time for the Port of Melbourne,” Mr Birrell said.

Mr Hodgett also paid tribute to retiring CEO Stephen Bradford, who is vacating the position after ten years of service as CEO at the Port of Melbourne.

Stephen Bradford guided the Port of Melbourne through the Channel Deepening Project and has overseen unprecedented trade growth at the Port of Melbourne, which has helped establish Victoria as our nation’s freight leading state.

“I would like to thank Stephen for the enormous contribution he has made, and for his many years of great leadership and integrity,” Mr Hodgett said.

Mr Easy is expected to take up his position in March 2014. Ms Caryn Anderson has been appointed as Interim CEO.
