Tasmanian minister for infrastructure Jeremy Rockliff said Mr Weedon had spent the past eight years steering TasPortsinto consistent profit, putting the company on track to double in size by 2022-2023.

“Mr Weedon oversaw the modernisation of TasPorts entire fleet, and accelerated the successful integration of Tasmania’s four port companies into a single, high functioning state-wide company,” he said.

“Most recently, Mr Weedon delivered a $200m Port Master Plan which will help the Tasmanian Government deliver on our plan to boost the Tasmanian economy by supporting jobs and promoting business confidence.”

Mr Rockliff thanked Mr Weedon for his hard work and dedication on behalf of the Tasmanian government, and wished him the best for the future.

While the recruitment process is underway, TasPorts chief operating officer Anthony Donald will be acting CEO.
