undefinedCEO Paul Scurrah, Newsmaker of the Year

Congratulations to our CEO and Managing Director Paul Scurrah.

Paul was named Newsmaker of the Year at last night's 2016 Australian Shipping & Maritime Industry Awards.

David Sexton, editor of Lloyd's List Australia presented Paul with the award and acknowledged Paul's leadership in DP World's significant achievements for 2016, including the introduction of the metropolitan rail shuttle service in Melbourne linking West Swanson Dock with a freight hub in Altona, the opening of Bentley Chemplax, securing of the A3 contract and becoming a White Ribbon accredited workplace.

While we weren't lucky enough to bring home Port or Terminal of the Year Award, we were very honoured to have been nominated.

Congratulations to all the recipients of the 2016 Awards, and thank you for a fabulous night to recognise our industry.
