Peter Davie
Lyttelton Port of Christchurch, New Zealand
Enhancing transport system resilience and sustainability
15:00 - 16:30Thursday, 28 May 2015

Peter Davie joined Lyttelton Port of Christchurch (LPC) as Chief Executive in 2003. Since his commencement, he has had a strong focus on relationships with customers and staff, and improving operating systems. He has been heavily involved in upgrading infrastructure and expanding container facilities. This has been critical since the 2011 and 2012 Canterbury earthquakes which damaged 75% of the Port’s wharves. The Company has since faced unprecedented challenges as it supports Christchurch City’s post-quake rebuild and Canterbury’s growing economy. His long term vision for the rebuild and enhancement of the Port will be the largest development in the Port’s history and one of the most significant recovery projects ever undertaken in New Zealand.
