Port of Newcastle advises that Geoff Crowe, Chief Executive Officer, has informed the Board of his intention to resign, effective at the end of June.
Geoff joined Port of Newcastle in July 2015 with extensive experience in the coal mining and logistics industry. He led the development of the Port's growth and diversification strategy, including the development of plans for a cruise terminal, bulk terminal and a container terminal.
"The Port of Newcastle is not only an iconic port that delivers huge economic value to our region and state as a trade gateway, it is also a valued asset for our industry and our community," said Geoff.
"We have a terrific team, and I am very proud of the contribution that we have made in the last three years for the Port and our region. As a Novocastrian, I will continue to take pride in the Port's growth."
Port of Newcastle Chair, Professor Roy Green, said that Geoff brought extensive experience in the Hunter region's coal mining sector
and a commitment to the safe and efficient operation of the Port.
"Geoff has led the Port through a time of growth, while maintaining an excellent safety record and strengthening the Port's relationship with its industry and community.
"Port of Newcastle's Board appreciates Geoff's leadership and wholehearted commitment to the organisation and looks forward to working with him over the next two months and building on his achievements for the future development of the Port."
