The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) has named Brad Williams as its new chief executive officer.

Commencing August 2, Williams brings with him more than 25 years’ experience in policy development and advocacy across a range of sectors including agriculture, resources, government and energy.

Williams has held senior corporate affairs and government relations roles at the Australian Renewable Energy Agency, listed mining and metals company South32 and Japanese oil and gas producer INPEX, and has also served as a ministerial chief of staff.

"The ALC Board is delighted that Brad has taken up this key leadership role and is looking forward to working closely with him as we continue to support ALC’s members, broaden ALC's impact and advocacy activities,"  ALC chair Philip Davies said.

"This is an important time for the sector, and we believe that Brad’s experience coupled with a strong team will further enhance ALC's capacity to deliver the policy framework and reforms needed to support national supply chain efficiency, resilience and safety.

Davies also thanked Rachel Smith for the "dedicated and engaged organisational leadership" she provided as ALC's interim CEO.

"The Board and ALC’s members look forward to working with Brad as we continue our critical role of ensuring the logistics sector is well placed to support the economic growth of our regions and cities in a safe, efficient and globally competitive way," Davies said.

Previous CEO Kirk Coningham departed in March.
