“I would like to thank and farewell Mick Slater,” Mazurek says. “Mick has been part of the Linfox Executive Leadership Team [ELT] since 2015 and has successfully led the government and defence business unit during this time. Mick’s high standards have been a hallmark of his time with Linfox and I wish him well in the future.”
Fryer joins the ELT on August 20 and will be based in Melbourne. The move follows less than a month after the company gained ports expert Mick Cronin as the new president of retail for its Australian business.
Cronin was formerly NSW Ports general manager strategy and commercial, with Linfox noting his long experience in supply chain, logistics, operations and procurement and work within a number of large Australian and global companies.
