CentrePort Chief Executive Blair O’Keeffe has announced his resignation.
Mr O’Keeffe will leave the company in February 2016, after seven years in the role.
Mr O’Keeffe said “It has been a privilege to lead the company. We have developed a strong and committed team with a clear strategy, which is delivering very positive results as CentrePort continues to grow its position as a key part of the New Zealand transport network. This makes it a good time for new leadership to build on what has been achieved”.
Chairman Warren Larsen said “during Blair’s tenure the company has refocused its strategy, recapitalised and grown its earnings materially. He has also brought a strong focus to health and safety.”
“He has done a very good job and is ready for a new assignment, having laid a solid platform for the company’s future. His departure is part of a carefully considered succession plan between Blair and the Board. The Board supports the development of his career and thanks him for his contribution to the company and region over the last seven years”.
“He leaves on the very best of terms and with our good wishes.”
“We have agreed a long lead time to allow time for his replacement to be found”.
The process to appoint his successor is already underway.
