Ports CEO has achieved much for city despite controversy
GLADSTONE Ports Corporation CEO Leo Zussino, who announced his imminent departure from his job on Thursday, is a person who has polarised the community of Gladstone.
He's the sort of person people either love or hate.
But there's no denying the achievements of this man, who has steered our port into a position where it can be regarded as one of the most important ports in Australia.
The Port of Gladstone has become a world class facility under his direction - and it continues to grow.
Of course, it's never going to be everyone who will be happy with this, but we need to remember that old saying that goes something like this: If you've got some enemies in your life it's because you have achieved. Some of the decisions you have made along the way will most certainly not make everybody happy.
Mr Zussino has said while he has no firm plans, he would like to work in the private sector.
It's going to be an interesting wait to see where his name pops up next.
