Napier Port is searching for a new director, after a decision by Melbourne-based ports expert Stephen Bradford to resign his board role.
Napier Port chairman Alasdair MacLeod said the board was sorry to lose such a wealth of expertise.
“It’s not easy to find professional directors of Stephen’s calibre. As a former chief executive of Port of Melbourne, his depth of knowledge is second to none when it comes to ports,” Mr MacLeod said.
“His experience and expertise have been of huge value around the board table at Napier Port, and it was with real regret that I accepted his resignation.”
Napier Port is now recruiting for a new director. Chief executive Todd Dawson is to take a seat at the board table in the interim.
Mr Bradford, who is also the chair of TasPorts, told Daily Cargo News that after three and a half years it was “time to move on”.
He expressed confidence in the Napier Port and its board.
“It is a good board and good staff,” Mr Bradford said.
