It is with much pleasure that we announce the appointment of Paul Driscoll in the newly created role of National Sales Manager.

Paul joined us in November 2019. In the three short months since the team is delighted with our new colleague and impressed with the impact, he has already made on our business.

An experienced sales professional and general manager with more than 25 years in the logistics and supply chain industry both in Australia and in Europe Paul is skilled in all facets of supply chain logistics. This experience spans multi-nationals and smaller local operations and ranges from shipping and airfreight, customs clearance, freight and transport operations, 3pl and warehouse operations to a more strategic focus in international trade, procurement and supply chain management and optimisation.

He brings this wealth of experience and natural talent to the task of leading and enhancing our sales function. Paul’s guiding principle for work and life is “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.”

Relishing the meaty challenge of optimising supply chains and creating genuine value for businesses Paul is skilled at identifying roadblocks, cutting down lead-times and stripping out cost. In addition to his deep understanding of supply chain logistics, Paul is a natural leader of people; coaching and mentoring our talented and growing sales team.  A perfect combination in the dynamic and complex world of logistics.

When asked to reflect on what makes him successful in his various roles so far, Paul identifies his ability to generate useful insights through his understanding and ability to think beyond the obvious. This combined with a determination not to settle for second best are the key ingredients for his success.

We are looking forward to big things in 2020 and have no doubt Paul will exceed our expectations.
