The Australian Logistics Council (ALC) has announced that its Chief Executive Officer, Kirk Coningham OAM has decided to step down from the role, effective from the end of May.
Following a successful and challenging 2020, Coningham, has advised of his intention to leave the organisation to focus on other endeavours, the ALC said in a statement.
“Over the course of the last three years, Kirk has led the ALC and its activities to further the National Freight & Supply Chain Strategy, the development of the Freight Data Hub and the Safety of our industry, and notably the response to the COVID-19 Pandemic,” it continued.
“Kirk worked closely with Governments (Federal, State & Local), ALC members and the industry more widely to remove the operational barriers presented by curfews and border closures in particular.
“The board commends and thanks Kirk for his leadership of ALC and services to our end-to-end supply chain industry. We wish him well in his future pursuits and look forward to making a smooth transition to a new CEO in due course.”
Western Roads Federation CEO Cam Dumesny said Coningham’s departure is a sad loss for the industry.
“….particularly for WA and NT, as whilst we didn’t agree on everything, Kirk at least made sure our WA and NT transport and logistics issues were given a voice in Canberra,” he tweeted in response.
