Napier Port has welcomed two new directors to its board, with Vincent Tremaine and John Harvey appointed as non-executive directors.

Vincent Tremaine brings a wealth of experience in the port sector, having served for 16 years as CEO of Flinders Ports Holdings, which owns seven South Australian ports. He has also worked for Toll Ports and Resources, managing GeelongPort and Port of Hastings in Victoria. Based in Adelaide, he is currently Chairman of Riverland Holdings and a director of South Australia’s Statewide Superannuation. Until recently, he was also Chairman of both Ports Australia and the South Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry and a director of Australia’s National Heavy Vehicle Regulator.

John Harvey comes from an extensive background in financial services, including NZX listings, acquisitions, mergers and financial reporting. He was a partner at PricewaterhouseCoopers for 23 years, including eight years as Auckland Managing Partner. He is currently a non-executive director of listed companies Heartland Bank, Investore Property, Stride Property Group and Kathmandu Holdings. His experience in finance is complemented by a strong understanding of port operations, having previously served on the board of Port Otago for nine years.

Napier Port Chairman Alasdair MacLeod welcomed the appointments, which were recommended by the Hawke’s Bay Regional Investment Company and given final approval by the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council. "Napier Port has some important challenges ahead, as we investigate a partial listing on the Stock Exchange. The experience and expertise John and Vincent offer will be a real asset through this process and beyond, and I’m pleased to welcome them to the board."

Vincent Tremaine and John Harvey replace Stephen Bradford and Chinthaka Abeywickrama, who stepped down from the board last year. Chief Executive Todd Dawson and Chief Financial Officer Kristen Lie were appointed to the board in an interim capacity during the director recruitment process, and will now step down.
