Gladstone Ports sacks CEO
(Posted on 28/05/19)
Gladstone Ports Corporation last week released the following statement regarding its CEO:
Following a thorough and extensive investigation of concerns raised last year about the conduct of Gladstone Ports Corporation’s (GPC) Chief Executive Officer (CEO), the Board has made the decision to terminate Mr Peter O’Sullivan’s tenure as CEO and will immediately start a merit-based search for GPC’s new leader.
Mr O’Sullivan was suspended on 13 December last year, on full pay, and has had no involvement with the day to day operations of the port since that time. The substantiated complaint related to Mr O’Sullivan’s role in a staff disciplinary matter.
Mr Craig Walker continues to serve as the Acting Chief Executive Officer.
As an active and significant contributor to the QLD and Gladstone community and economy, the focus of GPC’s employees remain on the running of a safe and busy port to ensure we deliver sustainable economic growth and social prosperity for our region.
