Bradford to replace Norton as TasPorts chair

Retirement opens the door for former Port of Melbourne CEO to take charge of the TasPorts board

Bradford to replace Norton as TasPorts chair
Stephen Bradford's next port challenge is in Tasmania.


TasPorts is set to instate Stephen Bradford as its new chair after the long-serving Dan Norton announced his intentions to retire.

Announcing the changes, Tasmanian infrastructure minister Rene Hidding says Bradford "has had a long and successful career in the field of infrastructure, particularly ports and is a highly valued non-executive director."

Bradford has a long history with Australian ports after spending a decade running the Port of Melbourne and more recently serving as a director of the Napier Port Corporation and the chairman of Cruise Down Under.

Not forgetting Norton’s 10 years in the role, Hidding says he is "pleased to congratulate and thank Dr Norton for his service."

"Dr Norton continues to be a great servant of Tasmania, being chair at TasNetworks and deputy chair of the Tasmanian Water and Sewerage Corporation, and he remains involved as a director of a number of public and private organisations, including Infrastructure Australia," he says.

Part of a major reshuffle of the TasPorts board, directors Evan Rolley and Owen Williams have also been replaced after joining Norton in his decision to step down.

The new members to the five-person Bradford board will be chartered accountant Tracy Matthews and experienced director Dario Tomat.
