Experienced non-executive director Debbie Goodin has joined the board of the Australia Pacific Airports Corporation (APAC), which owns Melbourne and Launceston airports.
Goodin, who took up the position on 1 March, has held directorships with four companies and chairs the audit committee of three of these, including Macquarie Atlas Roads, APA group, Senex Energy and Ooh! Media.
Chaired by Peter Hay, the APAC board includes representatives from the company’s major shareholders, including AMP Capital, IFM Investors, Future Fund and NSW Treasury Corporation.
Goodin’s resume includes senior leadership positions in both the private and public sectors and stints working globally in finance, mergers and acquisitions, and operations roles.
Hay said, “I am pleased to welcome Debbie to the APAC board, where her broad industry experience will help us in shaping the next stage of our company’s growth.
“Debbie joins us at a challenging time for the global aviation sector. Fuel pricing, international trade headwinds and the current threat posed by COVID-19 are just some of the challenges weighing heavily on demand for travel.
“Debbie’s experience across infrastructure, media and property businesses in particular will be valuable assets in the coming months.”
Goodin said, “APAC is a business with great vision and an important role in the Australian economy.
“APAC is extremely well set up for its next phase of growth, and I am looking forward to bringing my own experiences to bear in supporting the board and APAC’s executive team.”
In the financial year ending 30 June 2019, APAC reported revenues of $1.05 billion, and recorded more than 38.8 million passenger movements across Melbourne and Launceston airports.
