David Anderson has announced his plan to retire after a "rewarding" term as Ports Australia chief executive officer.

The board has started looking for a replacement for Anderson, who will depart on March 10.

"My tenure as CEO of Ports Australia has been highly rewarding, in serving one of the most significant of Australia’s economic sectors and a membership committed to supporting the well-being of the Australian community through efficient port operations and sustainable port development," Anderson says.

"I thank the members for their strong support and contribution to the success of our organisation over that time."

The company board says Anderson has agreed to facilitate transition and make himself available even after leaving office.

"During his time as CEO David has brought great credit to the organisation and unified the membership behind a strong, well developed policy agenda," Ports Australia chairman Vincent Tremaine says.

"David has created a strong awareness of port issues with government and other stakeholders and has worked tirelessly to have these appropriately positioned on the public policy agenda.

"While CEO of Ports Australia, David has developed a reputation for fearlessly advocating for the interests of the members."
