Transpacific Industries Group have announced the immediate resignation of Jack Perko, its Divisional Managing Director – Cleanaway.
In a statement this morning (25 September), Transpacific announced that Mr Perko’s resignation was tendered with immediate effect and he has returned home to the United States.
Mr Perko joined the company as Managing Director, Cleanaway in March 2014.
Transpacific has started a national and global search to find a replacement for the role. Chief Executive Officer Vik Bansal has assumed the role of Divisional Managing Director – Cleanaway, and will serve in that position until a successor is appointed.
Commenting on the announcement, Mr Bansal said: “We are disappointed that Jack has chosen to leave us abruptly after signing a two-year retention deal at the beginning of August.
“However, Cleanaway has a clear and well understood strategy. We have a very talented group of General Managers within the business with a wealth of Australian waste industry experience and I am looking forward to working more closely with them. We are making good progress on a number of initiatives and I look forward to providing an update at our upcoming Annual General Meeting.”
The statement confirmed that Mr Perko will not receive any payment from Transpacific in lieu of notice or by way of further compensation, and that the retention arrangements put in place in August 2015 are forfeited.
