Update 36

Community engagement

Steve Clark, Executive General Manager, Customer and Commercial, and Kevin Moore, General Manager Customer Management returned to King Island this week as part of our firm commitment to communicate regularly with our customers and stakeholders.

The two-day visit included 17 well-received meetings. New vessel updates were provided to stakeholders, and further questions answered.

“These meetings would not be possible without the TasPorts admin team on King Island. Their assistance is invaluable,” Kevin said.

“BIL and TasPorts are committed to community engagement throughout this process,” Steve said.

“We believe the personal meetings and updates have been positive and have fostered strong relationships.”

“We will be returning to the island in January to further update our customers on the progress of the new vessel,”Steve said.

The duo also engaged in some media work, talking with Kathleen Hunter of the King Island Courier and Wade Roskam of King Island radio about the arrival of the new vessel and answering questions from the community about the BIL service.
