Fremantle, September 2, 2019

Jodie Ransom has been appointed General Manager – West following Peter Ernst’s departure from Svitzer Australia to join the Port Authority of NSW. 

With 30 years’ experience in the maritime industry, having worked on both the principal and ship owner side of the industry, Jodie comes to Svitzer Australia with a wealth of knowledge.

Jodie started her career with BHP as a cadet, serving on a number of BHP owned vessels before moving into a variety of management roles, both operational and commercial, including Alcoa, CBH Group and MUR Shipping Australia.

Jodie has most recently been working as Principal Logistics for South32. 

Jodie’s experience makes her ideal for this role and we are thrilled that she has agreed to join us, to continue the great work done by Peter Ernst with our people and customers in South Australia, Western Australia, the Northern Territory and Papua New Guinea.

Jodie will be based out of our Fremantle office and will join Svitzer on 14 October 2019.
