Anthony Jones to step down in September with Patrick Boocock positioned to take the role

Today, LINX Cargo Care Group announces that after five years as the Group’s Chief Executive Officer, Anthony Jones has resigned from his position.

Anthony began his career with the Patrick business, now LINX, some 23 years ago on the wharf at Port Botany in NSW. During his tenure, Anthony has been a valued leader who was instrumental in the establishment of LINX following the separation from Asciano in 2016. Since its formation he has led the expansion and positive promotion of LINX CCG businesses and its people.

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.

Jones shared his sadness 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,” said Jones.

“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.

Brookfield’s Managing Partner, Patrick Boocock, has been appointed to replace Anthony as LINX Cargo Care Group’s CEO. Patrick will join the Group from 1 July and commence working closely with Anthony and the LINX Cargo Care Group Senior Leadership Team over the coming months to ensure a smooth transition to the role.

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