Former Sydney Ports CEO Greg Martin will join Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics (WWL) to become the new Regional Director for Oceania.
Martin was, for the last 11 years, CEO for Sydney Ports Corporation. After two years as leader of region Oceania, Lauritz Andersen has been called back to central office to lead a special project for the CEO.
“We are extremely lucky to have recruited Greg Martin to continue the great work accomplished by Andersen during his tenure in Oceania,” says Arild Iversen, President and CEO of Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics.
“Greg’s proven leadership qualities, combined with his extensive network and knowledge of the business will be real assets to WWL as we continue to develop our business in this region.”
Greg Martin has a long and distinguished career working in state-owned corporations in Queensland and New South Wales. Heralded by Lloyd’s List as “without question the most visionary figure in the Australian ports industry”, he joins WWL after 11 years as CEO of the Sydney Ports Corporation, where he has overseen significant trade growth and facility developments.
“I have known Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics for years as a customer and partner of Australian ports and have tremendous respect for what the company has accomplished,” Martin says.
It’s a very solid company with an exciting business strategy grounded on firm business ethics. I’m very excited to have the chance to join their global leadership team and contribute to further growth and development.”
Greg Martin will join WWL on October 9 and overlap with Lauritz Andersen until December 1, when he formally assumes the leadership role. Andersen will move back to Norway with his family by the end of the year and take up his new position in January. Peter Dexter continues as chairman of WWL in Oceania.
