The Australian State of Victoria's Minister for Ports informs that Nick Easy has been appointed as CEO of the Port of Melbourne Corporation.

Port of Melbourne Corporation Chairman Mark Birrell said that the Port of Melbourne Board undertook an extensive recruitment and selection process and was very pleased to recommend Nick Easy to the Victorian Government for appointment.

“The Board looks forward to Nick commencing in the role and provide strong leadership to the Corporation at this important time for the Port of Melbourne,” Mr Birrell said.

Minister for Ports David Hodgett said: “I am very pleased to announce the appointment of Mr Nick Easy as the CEO of the Port of Melbourne Corporation (PoMC), following the PoMC Board recommendation.

“Mr Easy previously worked at the Port of Melbourne in a number of senior executive positions, where he also oversaw the Channel Deepening Project. He will step into his new role at a critical time for the Port in its growth.

“With the $1.6 billion Port Capacity Project underway, Mr Easy takes on the position at a time when the Victorian Coalition Government is committed to increasing the capacity of our container trade, and cementing Victoria’s position as the freight and logistics capital of Australia."

Mr Hodgett also paid tribute to retiring CEO Stephen Bradford, who is vacating the position after ten years of service as CEO at the Port of Melbourne.
