Tranz Rail Chairman Wayne Walden today announced that John Loughlin would step down as Chief Financial Officer of Tranz Rail from 30 September 2003 and return to being a non-executive director for the company.

"The Board is grateful for John's contribution in what have been extremely challenging times. We are pleased that John has indicated that he will continue to be available to assist the company and to overview its progress.

" In the meantime Group Financial Controller Brian Fouhy, will act as Chief Financial Officer pending the final outcome of the Toll takeover bid," said Mr Walden.
