The Port of Portland has announced the appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer (CEO) in Greg Burgoyne, who will succeed current CEO, Greg Temewen, from January 2023.
Mr Burgoyne will join the Port of Portland team following ten years as CEO of the Glenelg Shire Council, prior to which he served as CEO at the Australian Taxation Office, after spending 18 years in senior management and board positions with Shell Australia.
“It is an honour to be appointed as CEO of Port of Portland. Not only is the Port a significant asset for Portland, but it also plays a pivotal role in Australia’s export markets and is a major contributor to the Australian economy,” he said.
Port of Portland Chairman, Lindsay Ward, welcomed Mr Burgoyne on behalf of the board.
“We are delighted to have Greg join the Port of Portland team. Greg has exceptional relevant experience and brings with him a wealth of industry knowledge,” Mr Ward said.
“As a local, he is very familiar with the operations at Port of Portland and has existing relationships with many of the Port’s customers. We look forward to Greg commencing with us in January 2023.”
Greg holds three Master’s Degrees, in accounting, in business (corporate law) and in professional ethics, as well as a Graduate Diploma in taxation. He is also a Fellow of the Australian Society of Certified Practising Accountants.
Outgoing Port of Portland CEO, Greg Tremewen, said Mr Burgoyne was an excellent choice for the role.
“Greg is an excellent choice for the position. We have had a close working relationship through Greg’s role at Glenelg Shire Council and the Committee for Portland. Greg understands our business and will be a great fit for the port,” Mr Temewen said.
