A new Director of Flinders Port Holdings (FPH) has been appointed, following the announcement that Chris Langford was stepping down from the role after almost six years on the board.
Chris Langford was appointed to the FPH Board on 16 July 2012, shortly after FPH’s acquisition of the Adelaide Container Terminal from DP World.
Mr Langford’s appointment had significant regard to his experience in container terminal operations and management over many years, including with ANL and P&O Ports.
Chairman of Flinders Port Holdings, John Marlay, said, “Chris was a valued member of the Board who took a collegiate approach and was always very willing to bring his depth of experience to bear in an appropriate manner.”
During the past six years, FPH has invested $149.4 million in South Australian ports infrastructure, employed approximately 330 additional employees, and has seen a 2.7 per cent compound average growth rate in cargo volumes.
“On behalf of the Board, we would like to thank Chris for his time and effort as a Director at Flinders Port Holdings over the last six years. We wish him every success for his future endeavours,” Mr Marlay said.
With the departure of Mr Langford, the FPH Board is pleased to welcome another highly experienced logistics professional with the appointment of Christine Miller as a Director.
Ms Miller has an exceptional background in the logistics industry and brings with her a wealth of knowledge in supply chain solution design and delivery, leadership and change management. Ms Miller has held senior executive roles with logistics organisations AP Moller (Maersk) and XAct Solutions, and is currently a Senior Director with CBRE Australia. Ms Miller holds an MBA in International Business Studies.
“Christine has a very strong background in logistics and supply chain solutions, and we are looking forward to welcoming her to the Board and working with Christine for the advancement of the FPH Group,” Mr Marlay said.
