Centurion has picked Tom Hannaford to head its operations in the east coast.

He took over the role of GM Operations East earlier this week.

Hannaford has over 25 years’ experience across transport, logistics, supply and procurement including managing and executing contracts within the mining, utilities and retail sectors.

He joins Centurion from Coles Australia where he managed the transport and logistics network for their supermarket outlets across Queensland and Northern NSW.

Prior to that, he worked as the resources and industrial GM for Linfox’s Queensland division.

Centurion chief executive Justin Cardaci says Hannaford is an "integral" part of its east coast expansion plans following the company’s successful move into Queensland and South Australia last year.

"Tom has considerable experience in the regions and industries in which we operate and this will be critical to the business as we look to consolidate on a great first year of operations in the east," Cardaci says.

"Our aim is to be the leading logistics partner in the commodity rich areas of Australia and Tom’s role will be to drive our east coast business in line with this.

"Tom will continue our focus on the safe and reliable movement of goods and equipment over long distances for customers in the resources, infrastructure, retail and construction sectors."

Hannaford says Centurion is a valued and respected organisation with an exciting vision for its future in the transport and logistics industry.

"Centurion has been operating for 50 years and is a financially strong and stable business that understands the transport and logistics industry and where it wants to go," Hannaford says.

"I’m looking forward to the new challenge and to supporting the exciting growth plans the business has for its east coast business."
