LINX Cargo Care Group CEO resigns

LINX Cargo Care Group has announced its Chief Executive Officer, Anthony Jones, has resigned from his position.

Jones began his career with the Patrick business, now LINX, some 23 years ago on the wharf at Port Botany in NSW.

Jones was instrumental in the establishment of LINX following the separation from Asciano in 2016.

He held the CEO position for the last five years.

In a statement issued by today, LINX thanked Jones for his leadership in the expansion and postive promotion of the LINX CCG businesses and its people.

Brookfield’s Managing Partner, Patrick Boocock, has been appointed to replace Jones as LINX Cargo Care Group’s CEO.

He will join the Group from 1 July and commence working closely with Jones and the LINX Cargo Care Group Senior Leadership Team over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition to the role.

Boocock has been with Brookfield since 2009 and has led businesses on behalf of Brookfield previously including CEO of the Australian AET&D group in Perth, Global CFO of Multiplex and most recently leading and expanding Brookfield’s asset management platform in Asia.

He comes to the role with significant experience in growing, scaling and transforming businesses and working collaboratively to achieve shared objectives.

“Through changing and challenging market conditions and now an unprecedented global pandemic, Anthony has delivered great outcomes for LINX Cargo Care Group, its customers and stakeholders, as well as bringing a strong and active voice when contributing to industry, market and wider stakeholder forums and discussions,” the company said in a statement.

Jones said he was sad to leave the business and people who were formative in his career to date however, reaffirmed his belief in the positive future ahead for LINX Cargo Care Group.

“To move on from LINX Cargo Care Group was a difficult decision to make, especially after investing my career over the last 23 years with the then Patrick business and now LINX Cargo Care Group,” he said.

“However, I know I leave LINX Cargo Care Group in a sound position and continue to stand by my long-term, genuine belief in the Group’s people and its future in Australia and New Zealand’s logistics supply chain industries.”

LINX Cargo Care Group’s Board and employees extend sincere gratitude to Anthony for his years of service, his commitment to the Group and his passionate leadership.
