The Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA) has appointed Sue Tomic as an Independent Director.
SCLAA Chair, Amanda O’Brien, said Tomic will be taking up the position of Secretary/Treasurer on the SCLAA Board.
“With a strong management consulting background and exposure to underperforming businesses, turnaround and accelerated transformation situations and previous experience working for and consulting to companies on matters of financial performance, financial management and operational improvement that achieve sustainable value add, Sue has resumed her professional services practice and is the Founder and lead consultant of Chain Consulting,” said O’Brien.
“Sue fell into the logistics industry by accident 10 years ago, having held the position of CFO and interim CEO of Maritime Container Services, the largest privately owned intermodal terminal operator in Australia. Her knowledge of the containerised freight sector (road and rail) and all its associated challenges for the movement of IMEX products – both rural and local has led to a passion of being an ambassador for change to reduce costly inefficiencies. She is currently General Manager of DP World Logistics-the only Intermodal Depot at Port Botany and DP World’s first venture into landside logistics in Australia.
“Sue has a strong network of operator/owners and contacts and looks forward to fostering collaboration across key stakeholders in the Containerised freight transport and logistics sector from Paddock to Port (or Port to DC, whatever the case may be),” she said.
Sue holds a Bachelor degree in Accounting & Management, and is a member of Australian Institute of Company Directors.
