Murray Vitlich has been appointed to replace outgoing director of Patrick Terminals and Logistics, Alistair Field, who resigned from the position after four years in charge.

The resignation has sparked a management change at Asciano’s stevedoring operator, which has integrated the leadership team of its two Patrick divisions, Terminals and Logistics and Bulk Automotive and Port Services, into a single group.

"We are extremely pleased to announce the appointment of Murray Vitlich to this position," Asciano CEO John Mullen says.

"He has been with the company for three years and during this time he has made a valuable contribution in both his original role as director of strategy and business development and, more recently, in his role as director of bulk automotive and port services.

"I would also like to thank Alistair Field for his significant contribution to the business over the past four years."

Field joined the company in 2010 as the divisional general manager of terminals and logistics, and was appointed as a director of Patrick Terminals and Logistics in January, 2012.  

Asciano says Patrick’s new director will focus on the consolidation of its subsidiary businesses including Terminals and Logistics, Bulk Port Services, Autocare, Mountain Industries and C3 in New Zealand.
