Maritime Industry Australia Limited (MIAL) says it has appointed Angela Gillham as its new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) to lead Australia’s only national peak shipping industry body.
It notes it has made the announcement following Teresa Llyod’s resignation after she worked as CEO at the organisation for almost 20 years while representing its 78 members.
The peak shipping industry body says Angela has a proven track record of delivering outcomes of vital importance.
It adds that she is a highly respected industrial leader and expert in marine biosecurity, who is dedicated to decarbonising the industry and ensuring it remains viable.
It says while this appointment marks an exciting new chapter for MIAL, the organisation is committed to seeing much needed reform passed in parliament and the continual growth of Australia’s shipping industry.
MIAL notes Teresa has led it through extensive shipping reforms, navigated significant changes to the industry including the boom of the offshore and the COVID crew change crisis, among her various achievements.
It says most recently, Teresa secured bipartisan support to arrest the decline of Australian flagged ships. It adds that once the Albanese government legislates it, this will have a profound and long-lasting impact on the industry and national security.
MIAL notes Teresa will finish her long-standing tenure in the coming weeks and Angela will start as CEO from July 1, after being an integral part of MIAL for the past 19 years including five years as deputy CEO.
It says it congratulates Teresa for her outstanding contribution to the shipping industry and wishes her all the best for the future.
