Mr James Baulderstone has been appointed as the Chief Executive Officer of the Moorebank Intermodal Company Limited (MIC) for the next five years.
Finance Minister Mathias Cormann and Minister for Population, Cities and Urban Infrastructure Alan Tudge welcomed the MIC Board’s decision to appoint Mr Baulderstone.
Mr Baulderstone has more than 30 years’ experience in commercial, corporate, finance and legal roles, including executive roles at Santos and BlueScope Steel. Most recently, he was the Strategic Projects Director for GFG Alliance Australia, the owner of Whyalla Steelworks.
“Mr Baulderstone has extensive leadership experience and he will work with the Board to provide strong strategic direction to support the Moorebank Intermodal Terminal Precinct to progress from construction to a fully operational precinct,” Minister Cormann said.
“The project is expected to deliver $11 billion in economic benefits over 30 years and to support 6,800 jobs in south-western Sydney once fully operational.”
“We look forward to working closely with Mr Baulderstone to deliver the Moorebank Precinct which will increase warehousing capacity in south‑west Sydney and promote road to rail uptake so we can help stop future congestion on Sydney’s arterial roads,” Minister Tudge said.
“I also want to thank Ms Erin Flaherty for her diligent work to progress the Moorebank Precinct over recent months as interim Executive Chair. I look forward to continuing to work with Ms Flaherty in her ongoing role as Chair of the MIC Board.”
