NEWS — Maritimo appoints new CFO

Maritimo has appointed Garth Corbitt as Chief Financial Officer, taking the reins from Richard Hardie who retires in early November.

Corbitt has strong experience in the manufacturing sector having worked with the Thorn EMI lighting division and BTR Nylex where he and a business partner completed a management buyout of the Ontera Modular Carpet division before selling the business to Cavalier Bremworth in 2002.

He has a particular interest in merger and acquisition activity and, after he moved to South East Queensland in 2002, was involved with Neumann Petroleum’s acquisition of Matildas Fuel Supplies.

"I am excited about my role with Maritimo," said Corbitt.

"Bill Barry-Cotter has a precise vision for the growth of the business and I want to be a part of it.

"I believe the role of a CFO is to add value across all facets of a business and I believe I can contribute to Mr Barry-Cotter’s plans," he said.
