Darwin Port CEO Appointment

(Posted on 21/07/19)

Landbridge Australia is delighted to announce Darren Lambourn as the new CEO at Darwin Port.

In his position, Mr Lambourn will be responsible for the overall operations and management of the Darwin Port reporting directly to Landbridge Australia’s Managing Director Mike Hughes.

Darren has a wealth of experience in supply chain operations in general cargo and bulk logistics, most recently working as the General Manager Bunbury for Southern Ports Authority where he was instrumental in the development and implementation of new port masterplans, which msuccessfully streamlined systems, processes and recruitment of critical positions.

In his role as the General Manager of CITIC Pacific Mining and the Cape Preston Port Company, Mr Lambourn developed and managed a new operational bulk loading port for the $12 billion Sino Iron project in the Pilbara. Darren has also held positions as the Regional Manager of the P&O Automotive and General Stevedoring and the Queensland Bulk Manager for P&O Ports. He has a strong focus on safety and environment with extensive experience in asset utilisation, port commissioning, stakeholder management and new business development. 

Mike Hughes said Mr Lambourn’s extensive experience in supply chain operations and port management made him an ideal candidate to continue the port’s transformation to a world-class port capable of supporting the growing demands of Northern Australia.

Mr Lambourn will succeed Terry O'Connor who announced his resignation earlier in the year after a 11 year career with the Port.
