Change of guard at Asciano

Two of Asciano’s senior managers are set to depart the company in the near future, prompting an internal reorganisation.
First to go will be Doug Schultz, the current divisional general manager at Patrick’s Container Ports division. He will be departing in less than two weeks on 14 August, “in order to pursue other career opportunities”, according to a media release issued by Asciano.
Doug Schultz has been in his current job for five years and has overseen a number of significant projects: the automated straddle container terminal and Beth 10 in Brisbane, the redevelopment of Port Botany Terminal and the (so far flawed) introduction of the rail-mounted gantries (RMG), the expansion of Patrick’s East Swanson Dock in Melbourne, and the creation of Patrick Port Logistics (from Patrick Portlink and Patrick Port Services).
Paul Garaty, currently the head of Pacific National’s intermodal services will step into Mr Schultz’s role.
Paul Garaty’s position, in turn, will be temporarily filled by Asciano’s current COO, Don Telford. However, Mr Telford intends to retire as soon as a permanent replacement is found for the job, to be re-titled “Divisional General Manager, Intermodal”. The appointment is expected to be finalised by the end of the year.
All divisional managers in the future will report directly to Asciano MD and CEO Mark Rowsthorn.
