Mr Greg Burgoyne joins the Port of Portland team in this role. Prior to his work for the Council, he served as Chief Financial Officer at the Australian Taxation Office, after spending 18 years in senior management and board positions with Shell Australia.

Port of Portland Chairman, Lindsay Ward, said, “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.

“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.”
