Sydney, 19 March 2021: Australasian Supply Chain Institute (ASCI) has announced new leadership for the NSW Chapter – representing its largest membership community in the nation – including:
According to ASCI President, Alexandra Riha RegPracOps, Mark, Duncan and Arushee are well equipped with the experience and dedication to take NSW members into the next phase of our strategic direction.
“Our NSW Members acknowledge their passion for supply chain management, their professional experience and the network they have developed over the years.
“On behalf of the ASCI Board, we congratulate and thank Mark, Duncan and Arushee for accepting their nomination and look forward to supporting them to drive the ASCI vision: Advancing supply chain as a recognised profession.”
Mark Skrzypiec RegPracLog has been serving on the ASCI NSW Chapter, the ASCI2021 Conference Advisory Board and the ASCI Risk Committee. He has 15 years’ experience driving operational excellence across supply chain and logistics operations in the B2C and B2B sectors. While at Novis, Mark led an ISO 9001 accreditation process. He was responsible for successfully transforming De’Longhi's supply chain. More recently, as Head of Logistics for Miele, Mark established two greenfield distribution facilities while implementing new processes including cloud-based digital applications to create a customer-centered, award-winning logistics function in full alignment with the organisation’s premium brand promise.
Duncan Wardle has been serving on the ASCI NSW Chapter and the ASCI2021 Conference Advisory Board. He has 20+ years of experience across the FMCG, Pharmaceutical and Dairy industries in Australia, Europe and North America. Currently Site Leader with Bega, Duncan previously led GSK’s largest US manufacturing site and was Global Supply Chain Director when GSK’s consumer business transformed to become a full end to end supply chain. Duncan has a passion for enabling change and building consumer-centric cultures.
Arushee Aggarwal has been serving as Tertiary Ambassador for the ASCI NSW Chapter and was a regional finalist in the ASCM Case Competition in 2019. She is a supply chain analyst for the Kraft Heinz Company and holds an MBA from Macquarie University in supply chain management.
ASCI Regional Chapter leadership tenure follows a two year cycle. Stepping down from the President role is Brendan O’Keeffe who led the NSW Chapter through a growth phase, followed by a turbulent year during COVID-19 where the committee kept members connected via weekly online webinars.
“Brendan’s passion for the supply chain community has always influenced others to join ASCI. He is a role model for our profession. The Board would like to thank Brendan for his consistent leadership and full support of the ASCI vision.”
The NSW Chapter will also host ASCI’s Annual Conference “Supply Chain Vision In The Decade For Action” to be held 28-30 July at Western Sydney’s William Inglis Hotel and the ASCI Award Celebration on the evening of the first conference day.
