Colm Hamrogue has been named the new chief executive officer at TransDiesel.

He replaces Mike McKessar, who is leaving the company after 15 years. Hamrogue will step into the role in April 2022.

Hamrogue is currently the group general manager of transport at HW Richardson Group in Invercargill and will be relocating with his family to Christchurch.

He has held previous roles at Combined Rural Traders and Farmlands.

“I am very privileged to have been selected as the next chief executive of TransDiesel,” Hamrogue said.

“It is an excellent business, and I’m proud to be part of the team. Having worked for HW Richardson, I know TransDiesel has terrific brands, service, and above all it has good people on the ground,” he said

Hamrogue said his focus is on building relationships with staff and customers.

“My approach is simple, I believe that it’s important to say what you’re going to do and then do it,” he said.

“I look forward to joining the team in April and getting out and about to meet our staff, customers and suppliers.”
