QUBE chief financial officer Paul Lewis announced he would be stepping down from the role next year after more than 15 years with the logistics business.

He is to depart the company between April and June of next year, enabling him to present the half-year results in February and allow time for a smooth transition to a new CFO.

In an ASX announcement, the company said Mr Lewis was stepping down for “personal and family reasons”.

Qube managing director Paul Digney said there is no doubt Mr Lewis had been an exceptional CFO.

“Paul has been a critical part of Qube’s success, taking the business from its beginnings as a $200-million infrastructure fund in 2007 to the over $6-billion listed entity of today,” Mr Digney said.

“During that time, he has overseen multiple acquisitions, investments, capital raisings and debt funding initiatives that have been a key component of Qube’s growth.”

The search process for a new CFO is to begin soon.
