The Lonsdale Consortium, which recently acquired the Port of Melbourne from the Victorian State Government, has named Brendan Bourke as the Port’s new chief executive.
The appointment comes just over a month after the Lonsdale Consortium, consisting of the Future Fund, QIC, Global Infrastructure Partners and OMERS, was selected as the Port’s new custodian.
Mr Bourke has more 30 years of experience in the corporate sector, including a role as the chief executive of Queensland Motorways where he oversaw the transition of the business from government to private ownership.
“As Australia’s largest container, automotive and general cargo port, the Port of Melbourne is a truly landmark asset and I am delighted to be joining as CEO at this exciting time in the Port of Melbourne’s proud history,” Mr Bourke said.
“I look forward to leading the organisation and working with all stakeholders to ensure the Port upholds its track record of providing world class facilities and services to industry.”
