Gillespie to leave DP World for Orica
Brian Gillespie is going to Orica


DP World Australia chief commercial officer Brian Gillespie is on his way to resources sector services firm Orica, his MD and CEO Paul Scurrah has told staff.

During his tenure at the stevedore, Gillespie has been involved in its Tasmanian push at the Port of Burnie, the SCT and Austrak port rail deals and facility access charging.

"After four years with DP World Australia, Brian has accepted a role with Orica Asia Pacific and leaves our business in a significantly stronger position than when he commenced," Scurrah says in thanking Gillespie and wishing him well.

"In his time with DP World Australia, Brian has contributed significantly to our achievements as an organisation, ensuring DP World Australia maintains its position as the number one stevedore in Australia.

"A valued member of the Executive Leadership Team, Brian’s expertise in strategy, mergers and acquisition and large scale commercial, operational and business process improvement was an asset to our business. His holistic approach and drive presented many opportunities in new business areas for DP World Australia.

"Brian will finish with DP World Australia later in September."
