Ports Australia announced the appointment of the Hon. Michael Gallacher as the Chief Executive Officer of Ports Australia on 7 April.
This selection process was rigorous and drew applicants from a wide variety of backgrounds across the nation, Ports Australia said in a statement.
“Gallacher’s long standing interest and understanding of ports and shipping related issues, together with his widely acknowledged advocacy and policy development skills were instrumental in his successful application,” the statement continued.
“His relationship with our industry developed with his appointment as Shadow Minister for Ports following the 2003 NSW State election and from that time he has been the strongest advocate for the future growth and advancement of our industry.
“Through his career, Michael has progressed into other areas of political responsibility, such as Industrial Relations, Police and Emergency Services and yet he has always maintained an interest and a preparedness to understand the challenges and opportunities affecting ports across the nation.
Vincent Tremaine, Chairman, Ports Australia said “There is no doubt that Michael will build on the outstanding leadership and direction set by our former CEO, David Anderson, to drive the public profile of Ports Australia and to strongly advocate on the issues affecting the efficiency and development of our nation’s shipping gateways.
“Ports Australia would also like to sincerely thank David Anderson for remaining in his position in a part-time capacity during this transition period. We appreciate his ten years of exemplary service as Ports Australia’s CEO and we wish him all the best for his future endeavours”.
