ALC chief executive resigns

The Australian Logistics Council will be looking for a new CEO after Kirk Coningham decided to call an end to his tenure

KIRK Coningham has announced his resignation as chief executive of the Australian Logistics Council effective from the end of May.

It follows what the ALC said was a “successful and challenging 2020”, with Coningham advising of his intention to leave to focus on other endeavours.

“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,” ALC chair Philip Davies said in a statement.

Coningham worked worked closely with federal, state and local governments ALC members and industry 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,” Davies said.

“We wish him well in his future pursuits and look forward to making a smooth transition to a new CEO in due course.”
