Chairman Mark Brodie thanked Mr Zussiono for his 21 year involvement with the CPC, first as chairman and then as CEO.

“I take this opportunity to acknowledge and thank Leo for the good work he has done during his time at Gladstone Ports Corporation.  His passion and determination towards his role is well known and to this end, he has placed Gladstone Ports Corporation in a strong position going forward,” Mr Brodie said.

The Gladstone Ports Corporation intends to have an interim CEO in place by June so the new CEO can work alongside Leo Zussino until the end of August to help ensure a smooth transition of leadership of the Gladstone Ports Corporation.
