From Sea to SALT – New GM West
Svitzer Australia has internally appointed Tully Barnes to be the new General Manager – West.
Tully is a great sea to shore to senior leadership story – after a career in the Royal Australian Navy, Tully started with Svitzer nearly ten years ago.
Tully has most recently been Darwin Port Manager and Head of Defence Projects.
“Tully’s a great example that there truly are a variety of career paths one can take within the business – from any part of the business – and the incredible value brought to the role that a technical and multi-functional background brings,” Svitzer Australia MD Nicolaj Noes said.
“I am confident under Tully’s leadership our strong team in the West will continue to deliver and support our harbour and terminal towage customers and port stakeholders in achieving their port and shipping safety, efficiency and sustainability goals.
“It is great to be able to draw on our internal talent to appoint to this important role within our Australian leadership team, and Tully’s existing knowledge of the business ensures a high level of understanding and continuity to meet our valued customers’ needs.”
In the role, Tully has responsibility for all Svitzer harbour and terminal port operations in Western Australia, Northern Territory, and Papua New Guinea and joins Svitzer’s Senior Australian Leadership Team (SALT).
