NORTH Queensland Bulk Ports has announced the appointment of Brendan Webb as its new CEO.
Chair Jane McTaggart said the board welcomed Mr Webb, who is currently CEO of Ports Victoria, back to NQBP and back to Queensland.
“As a government-owned port authority, our ports and our people deliver essential port services facilitating billions of dollars of trade worldwide for the benefit of the people of Queensland,” Ms McTaggart said.
“We believe that Brendan is the right person to lead NQBP to deliver on our long-term vision to be global leaders in the sustainable facilitation of port trade and further the economy of Queensland.”
Ms McTaggart said that as well as a deep understanding of NQBP and its ports, Mr Webb had extensive commercial experience, having held roles in heavy haulage and mining support sectors.
She said the new CEO would start in early October and would be based in NQBP’s Mackay head office, looking after ports across the region, including Weipa.
The board thanked acting CEO Belinda Kenny for her leadership during the recruitment period. She will return to her role as NQBP’s chief financial officer in October.
