Regional freight company Genesee & Wyoming Australia has named Luke Anderson as its new chief executive, with the former chief financial officer of Australian mining company OZ Minerals to start at the Adelaide-based business from October 2.
Mr Anderson has been CFO at OZ Minerals since 2015 and before that was CEO and president of Unimin Corporation, one of North America’s largest industrial minerals and mining concerns.
“With two decades as a successful leader in the global mining industry, Luke has the ideal background to lead GWA,” said Jack Hellmann, chairman, president and CEO of Genesee & Wyoming, which owns GWA in a 51-49 partnership with fund manager Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets.
“His vision for the customer-centric railroad will only strengthen GWA’s existing reputation for outstanding service and help us accelerate our growth in the opportunity-rich Australian environment.”
Mr Anderson succeeds David Brown, G&W’s chief operating officer, who served as interim GWA managing director since last December, when GWA acquired Glencore’s Hunter Valley rail business for $1.14 billion and issued a 48.9 per cent equity stake to MIRA.
GWA is Australia’s third-largest rail service provider, with 600 employees, 100 locomotives and 2300 wagons, and manages 3700km of track, including the 2200km Tarcoola to Darwin line. It provides rail freight services in NSW, Northern Territory and South Australia.
