Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics names new regional director for Oceania

October 28 - Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics has appointed Robert Lord as regional director for Oceania, succeeding Greg Martin.

Based in Sydney, Lord (pictured below) will officially take over as regional director on March 5, 2012, but will join WWL from December 5, 2011 and use this period to introduce himself internally and externally.

Mr Lord has more than 20 years experience from several of WWL's most important customer segments, and will bring important insights to support the further development of WWL in Oceania.

"WWL strives to deliver solutions that give our customers a competitive advantage. Mr Lord's experience from the mining, wood and paper industries brings exactly the perspective and competence that we need to further develop our support to customers in Oceania," comments Arild Iversen, president & CEO of Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics.

Currently, Mr Lord holds positions on the boards of Bathurst Resources Ltd as well as Norske Skog Industries Australia Ltd. He was managing director and CEO of publically listed Gloucester Coal prior to the takeover by the Noble Group in 2009. Before that he was executive vice president Australasia for Norske Skog Industrier ASA, a Norwegian company which acquired Fletcher Challenge Paper Australasia in 2000.

WWL has a long history in Oceania, developing its offering over the years in response to the growing customer demand for supply chain solutions for cars as well as rolling equipment, especially within the mining, energy and farming sectors. The company manages the entire supply chain, from overseas plants to dealers in Australia and New Zealand, for major car and agricultural and construction equipment manufacturers.
