Departing an executive role at the Urban Development Institute of Australia, Kirk Coningham has assumed the role of CEO at the Australian Logistics Council.
Coningham commenced the new role, based out of the council’s office in Canberra, on Monday 14 January, and brings along extensive experience in senior roles for the Australian Medical Association, the Murray Darling Basin Commission, the Australian Army, and the media industry.
“The ALC Board is confident that Kirk’s considerable experience in organisational leadership, member engagement and influencing policy outcomes will further enhance ALC’s capacity to deliver the policy framework and reforms needed to enhance national supply chain efficiency and safety,” said ALC Chair Philip Davies.
“This is especially important as we head into a Federal Election year, and as the Commonwealth prepares the National Freight and Supply Chain Strategy for release in 2019. ALC is committed to remaining the lead advocate for this much-needed Strategy, and ensuring it delivers the right outcomes for ALC Members and for the nation’s freight logistics industry as a whole,” he said.
