Linfox reshuffles its leadership pack
Peter Fox is pleased the roles are being filled by internal candidates

 

A new set of faces will lead Linfox into its future in one of the biggest senior executive shake-ups the company has undertaken.

No fewer than five executive have new positions from July 1. With their new titles, they are:

  • Linfox International Group (LIG) CEO Greg Thomas
  • FMCG president Kylie Fraser
  • BevChain CEO Matt Sheridan
  • Linfox Australia and New Zealand COO Mark Mazurek
  • Linfox Intermodal (formerly Linehaul) president Ian Strachan.

"These changes will ensure Linfox continues its strong growth and is well positioned to adapt to the evolving needs of our customers," Linfox executive chairman Peter Fox says.

"I am delighted to appoint these well-deserving, talented individuals to key leadership positions in our business.

"It is wonderful to see all these roles being filled by internal candidates."

Formerly FMCG president, Thomas will retain responsibility for Linfox’s healthcare portfolio.

Based in Bangkok, he replaces Gabby Costigan who will step down as CEO of LIG on June 30 and was thanked for her "strong business leadership and strategic direction".

Fraser returns to Linfox after six years at BevChain during which it doubled in size and broadened its services and customer base.

"Kylie is driven by improvements to her customers’ supply chains and finding new solutions to their daily challenges," BevChain chair and Linfox CEO Annette Carey says.

Sheridan joins BevChain from Linfox Logistics where he was general manager retail for Woolworths.

"Matt has a strong understanding of the demands of manufacturers and retailers through his experience managing the national Woolworths contract, including parts of its BWS network," Carey says.

Mazurek is the former Linhaul president and takes over a newly created role responsible for the day-to-day running of Linfox Logistics and will continue to report directly to Carey.

"Mark has successfully led the Linehaul team for six years," Fox notes.

"He joined Linfox in 2006 as Vice President Wood, Packaging, Print Solutions and Events with responsibility for some of Linfox’s largest customers. He joined the Linehaul team in early 2010 as Vice President before being appointed President in 2011."

Strachan will oversee interstate transport by road, rail and sea and his segment gains a name change to reflect modern realities.
