Want to know exactly what goes on at CentrePport? Or how they are dealing with the aftermath of the earthquake?
A successful night at Tawa Rotary hearing from guest speaker, CEO of CentrePort, Derek Nind.
Derek spoke about challenges for CentrePort Wellington in the past and in the future and how he's addressing these.
Derek’s career started in the South Island. He started at CentrePort in 2012 as General Manager, Commercial, just in time for the damaging 2013 Seddon earthquakes and then was promoted to CEO in 2015 just before the 2016 Kaikoura earthquake. Both sets of earthquakes caused damage to the port facilities.
CentrePort is a key strategic asset for central New Zealand contributing significantly to the region’s GDP and supporting thousands of jobs. Derek explained progress that has been made to improve significantly resilience at the port and plans that are being made for regeneration.
