“NSW Ports manages a $5 billion asset portfolio consisting of NSW’s key trade gateways of Port Botany and Port Kembla, and two intermodal hubs at Enfield and Cooks River,” she said.

“I am looking forward to the opportunity to work alongside both the Board and the executive team to continue to drive sustainable growth of the ports and intermodal terminals.”

NSW Ports Chief Executive Officer Marika Calfas welcomed McKenzie to the role and thanked McClintock for his contribution to the organisation.

“Paul joined NSW Ports in 2013, just after NSW Ports took over management of Port Botany and Port Kembla from the NSW Government,” Calfas said.

“Throughout the years he has helped the business transform into a world class port and logistics manager focussed on driving sustainable growth.

“Paul has left an enduring mark on the company and I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank him for his long-standing support of and commitment to the business and his leadership of the Board and guidance to the executive team.”

McKenzie’s appointment takes place on 5 March 2020.
