A new CEO for Flinders Port Holding (FPH) has been appointed following the announcement that Vincent Tremaine will stand down from the role in 2018.
The Board has appointed Stewart Lammin to succeed Mr Tremaine effective 5 March 2018.
Mr Lammin is currently General Manager Flinders Ports and his appointment follows a search over the past few months of potential internal and external candidates.
Mr Lammin has been an Executive of FPH since 2004 and has extensive maritime industry experience prior to joining FPH.
He has a significant understanding of all of FPH’s business operations and manages the relationship and growth in services provided to FPH customers.
The FPH Board wishes to acknowledge the significant contribution and leadership of FPH by Mr Tremaine during his 16 year tenure as CEO.
During this time, FPH acquired the Adelaide Container Terminal and launched Flinders Logistics, a highly successful national logistics and stevedoring business, and both containers handled and other cargo volumes tripled.
Mr Tremaine has been instrumental in developing a capable leadership team, expanding FPH business activities outside of South Australia, and developing a strong reputation for customer service delivery, innovation and safety throughout FPH operations.
He has also been an outstanding business leader within the industry, including his roles as Chairman of Business SA, Chairman of Ports Australia, and a director of the National Heavy Vehicle Regulator.
Mr Tremaine and Mr Lammin will undertake a transition process between now and 5 March 2018 to ensure a successful handover, following which Mr Tremaine will fulfil a four month business advisory role to FPH until his departure in August 2018.
