South Australia’s Flinders Ports has announced a business restructure with key executives assigned new tasks. Chief executive Vincent Tremaine said the change had resulted in Flinders Port Holdings being created as the parent company for six distinct business divisions.
Mr Tremaine remains in charge of this group.
He told Lloyd’s List Australia it would be business as usual for customers, with the changes being a “corporate restructure”.
“This new structure has resulted from a review of our activities and opportunities for future expansion,” he said.
“It will allow greater focus on each individual business unit and enhance the distinct and separate nature of each business.”
Stewart Lammin who was formerly general manager of business development has become general manager for the entire Flinders Ports, ‘ports’ business.
Meanwhile Andrew Pellizzari becomes general manager of Flinders Logistics.
Finally, Peter Cheers, the former general manager of human resources and marine services becomes general manager of Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal.
Flinders Port Management Services, Flinders Ports Land Development and Flinders Spencer Gulf Ports are the other business units in the group and the aim is to complement the ports division, the logistics business and the container division purchased from DP World in July last year.
“The emphasis for the group in 2013 will be on improvement and efficiency,” Mr Tremaine said.
“We will be modernising the business, investing in new equipment and driving growth.”
