Transpacific names new CEO


Transpacific Industries appoints former chief financial officer Kevin Campbell as the Group's new CEO

January 27, 2011

Transpacific Industries has appointed former chief financial officer Kevin Campbell as the Group’s new CEO as part of a Board renewal process announced late last year.

Campbell, who was formerly global director and chief financial officer of Visy Industries, has taken over the reins from outgoing CEO Trevor Coonan.

Transpacific Chairman Gene Tilbrook says Campbell comes to the role with a strong track record of driving profitability, growth and the efficient use of capital.

"Transpacific is undergoing a process of renewal and Kevin’s appointment is a fundamental element of that strategy," Tilbrook says in a company statement.

"He will lead the company into its next phase of strategic development," he says.

Campbell will meet with investors, customers and other stakeholders over the next few months.

"This is an exciting time and I am honoured to have been afforded the role of new CEO," he says.

A search for a new chief financial officer is expected to commence immediately.

Until that search is complete, Transpacific says it will use the services of a Brisbane-based partner of one of Australia’s major accounting firms to act as CFO.

Headquartered in Milton, Brisbane, Transpacific is a leading provider of recycling, industrial services and waste management solutions.
