Ports of Auckland Ltd CEO appointment

A former shipping industry Managing Director with extensive local and international experience, Tony Gibson, has been appointed Chief Executive of Ports of Auckland Ltd, to replace Jens Madsen who will leave the Port at the end of January.

In making the announcement today, Ports of Auckland Chairman John Lindsay said that Mr Gibson had the right combination of skills and vision to take the Port Company forward.

Mr Gibson has had 30 years experience in shipping and logistics, first with Seabridge in Wellington, and then with Nedlloyd and P&O Nedlloyd. He worked in various roles in Africa, Asia and Europe, including as European Director of Customer Operations, Rotterdam, before being appointed Managing Director, New Zealand and Pacific Islands in 2002. Following a take-over by Maersk, Mr Gibson served as Managing Director of Maersk, New Zealand for three years.

Most recently he has pursued his own business interests as a director and then Chairman of ERoad, a road-user charge solution provider. In 2008 he was appointed by the Minister of Transport to the Road User Review Group.

Mr Gibson will start in his new role on 1 February 2011.
