Darwin Port appoints new CEO

Landbridge Australia has announced the new Chief Executive Officer at Darwin Port.

Darren Lambourn has been appointed to the position, and will be responsible for the overall operations and management of the Darwin Port. 

He will report directly to Landbridge Australia’s Managing Director, Mike Hughes.

Mr Lambourn has a wealth of experience in supply chain operations in general cargo and bulk logistics. 

Most recently, he worked as the General Manager Bunbury for Southern Ports Authority where he was instrumental in the development and implementation of new port masterplans, which successfully streamlined systems, processes and recruitment of critical positions.

In his role as the General Manager of CITIC Pacific Mining and the Cape Preston Port Company, Mr Lambourn developed and managed a new operational bulk loading port for the $12 billion Sino Iron project in the Pilbara. 

Mr Lambourn has also held positions as the Regional Manager of the P&O Automotive and General Stevedoring and the Queensland Bulk Manager for P&O Ports. 

He is set to bring to Darin Port a strong focus on safety and environment with extensive experience in asset utilisation, port commissioning, stakeholder management and new business development.

Mr Hughes said Mr Lambourn’s extensive experience in supply chain operations and port management made him an ideal candidate to continue the port’s transformation to a world-class port capable of supporting the growing demands of Northern Australia.

Mr Lambourn will succeed Terry O’Connor, who announced his resignation earlier in 2019 after an eleven-year career with Darwin Port.

“On behalf of Landbridge, I would like to thank Terry for his significant contribution to Landbridge and to Darwin Port. Terry has successfully led Darwin Port through its transformation from a Northern Territory Government business to a thriving privately owned port under Landbridge’s management. We wish him well for the future,” Mr Hughes said.

Mr Lambourn will assume his role from 19 August 2019.
