A CHANGING of the guard is taking place at Flinders Port Holdings with Chris Langford stepping down from the board to be replaced by new director Christine Miller.
Mr Langford (not the Hawthorn football star of the same name) was a director for almost six years, having been appointed to the FPH Board on 16 July 2012, soon after FPH’s acquisition of the Adelaide Container Terminal from DP World Australia.
FPH chairman 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 (Mr Langford’s time on the Board), FPH invested $149.4 million in South Australian ports infrastructure, employed about 330 additional employees and reported a 2.7% 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,” Mr Marlay said.
“We wish him every success for his future endeavours.”
Stepping up to the board as director is Christine Miller who is said to have “an exceptional background” in logistics and “a wealth of knowledge” in supply chain solution design and delivery, leadership and change management.
According to FPH, Ms Miller has held senior executive roles with AP Moller (Maersk) and XAct Solutions and is currently a senior director with CBRE Australia.
She 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.
