New-look ops team for Bunker Freightlines


<font color=red><b>COMPANY MOVES:</b></font> Bunker installs new-look operations team; two staff move on, another terminated

December 3, 2009

Melbourne operator Bunker Freightlines has had a cleanout of operations staff, with two moving on and another fired.

Company management didn’t want to comment on the changes, but an employee confirms the moves.

"One guy was terminated and the other two left of their own accord. One was poached," they say.

One of the resigning staff members left due to "family reasons".

Steve Delany now heads up the operations office for the company, ATN understands.

General Manager Kathy Williams didn’t want to speak for any staff "past or present".

"I don’t comment on behalf of my staff. I don’t work that way," she says.

Founder Ron Bunker sold the business for $35 million to a private equity-backed conglomerate in May last year, which formed a new group under the Silk Logistics banner.

The group includes Hoffmann Transport, Kagan Logistics, Doolan’s Heavy Haulage and WA Freightlines.

Bunker – who still owns all Bunker property, leasing it to Silk – also declined comment on the staff changes, along with Silk CEO Bob Welsh.
