GPC chief due to leave, new CEO still unknown

CRAIG Doyle will walk out of Gladstone Ports Corporation as the chief executive officer next Friday but who will replace him is still not known.

In November Mr Doyle announced he would be moving into the CEO position at Mackay council but an announcement about his replacement in Gladstone isn't expected to be made until the end of this financial year.

Mr Doyle was raised in Mackay and still has family there which we understand was part of the motivation for applying for the new position.

In a Mackay Regional Council press release Mr Doyle said he was looking forward to creating "new opportunities" for the community.

An interim chief executive officer will be announced next week, however.
