New director appointed to Port Otago Board

Born in Scotland, Mr Campbell has had an international career in manufacturing including time working for Comalco and Rio Tinto while based at Tiwai Smelter. Now retired to Invercargill, he is a professional director with extensive governance experience.

Mr Campbell’s current directorships include Todd Corporation, Chair of NZ Energy Efficiency and Conservation Authority( EECA) and Chair of Electricity Invercargill. He will fill the position left following the retirement of John Harvey.

“With an independent consultant used to seek and shortlist candidates, we were ideally seeking a candidate with a background in infrastructure, property, supply chain or logistics management” Stephen Woodhead said. “As a strong front runner from an impressive field of candidates, we’re very pleased to be able to appoint Mr Campbell to the Port Otago Board.”
