Port CEO sets sail

Fremantle Gazette - - NEWS -

FRE­MAN­TLE Ports chief ex­ec­u­tive Chris Leatt-Hayter will re­tire next Jan­uary, paving the way for a new face to lead the Port’s longert­erm tran­si­tion to Kwinana.

Mr Leatt-Hayter said after 12 years in the role he was look­ing for­ward to “pur­su­ing new op­por­tu­ni­ties and in­ter­ests”.

Fre­man­tle Ports chair Ross Love said Mr Leat­tHayter had over­seen key projects in­clud­ing the deep­en­ing of the in­ner har­bour in 2010 and as­so­ci­ated land recla­ma­tion and devel­op­ment of Rous Head.

Mr Love said this had sig­nif­i­cantly ex­panded Fre­man­tle Ports’ in­ner har­bour foot­print and en­abled it to han­dle the big­ger con­tainer ships us­ing the port to­day.

“Other key achieve­ments dur­ing his ten­ure in­cluded devel­op­ment of the North Quay Rail Ter­mi­nal and the pur­chase and ma­jor ex­pan­sion of the Kwinana Bulk Ter­mi­nal,” he said.
