New Victorian Ports CEO to speak at industry event

New Victorian Ports Corporation CEO Rachel Johnson has been added to the speaker line-up for the Victorian Transport Association’s (VTA) Annual Women’s Lunch.
“I’m thrilled that Rachel has accepted our invitation to address this important annual event as she is one of the most prominent members of the Victorian, and national, freight and logistics industry and will no doubt have a very compelling story to share with our guests,” said Peter Anderson, CEO, VTA.
“Rachel is tremendously well-respected in the transport and business world, and is a tremendous example for both women and men who aspire to successful careers in the industry.
“In an industry where participation rates among women are still too low, Rachel has defied convention by advancing through senior roles in the private and the public sector. We look forward to hearing her story at our Annual Women’s Lunch.”

Johnson was appointed as the inaugural CEO of Victoria Ports Corporation (Melbourne) in November 2016 shortly after the successful leasing of the Port of Melbourne’s commercial operations to a private sector operator.
She has significant and wide-ranging experience of Australian freight and logistics businesses and the development and operation of transport infrastructure in both the public and private sectors, having held senior positions in New South Wales government bodies and the private sector.
Johnson joins other confirmed speakers including Dr Hermione Parsons, Director, Deakin University’s Centre for Supply Chain and Logistics, and Jodie Haydon, General Manager – Human Resources, Viva Energy Australia, with the VTA working to confirm an additional speaker shortly.
