London, UK – TMX GLOBAL, the end-to-end supply chain consultancy, has announced the appointment of Bob Black, former COO of Australia Post Group, as a non-executive board director, as well as further senior leadership hires on its UK team.
Bob brings over three decades of logistics and supply chain experience to this advisory role. In his previous position as Group COO and EGM eCommerce Delivery at Australia Post Group, he was responsible for leading and optimising the end-to-end, parcels and mail delivery business across the group and helped shape the organisation’s eCommerce transformation strategy.
Prior to this, Bob held a number of leadership positions at global express delivery company TNT from 1990 – 2014, most latterly as Managing Director, Australia. Here, he secured the second largest single investment in TNT’s corporate history and as a key member of TNT’s ASPAC board, contributed to the overall strategy and personally oversaw the strategic turnaround of the company’s operations in Japan, transforming it from a loss-making business unit and returning it to profit.
TMX Global has also bolstered its UK team with several new hires, including Jacek Lechocki as Programme Director, Alistair Binns as Commercial Director and Matthew Unali and Rhyce Dawson as Senior Consultants.
Jacek joins TMX Global from Orange Connex Global (UK Ltd), where he successfully launched eBay fulfilment 4PL logistics services in the UK. He has more than 30 years’ experience delivering IT, Technical, New Product Development, Business and Capex projects across multiple industry sectors. At TMX, he is working with customers to define, plan and manage diagnostic and business change projects.
As Commercial Director, Alistair Binns is responsible for supporting the development and implementation of commercial and pursuit strategies to establish TMX’s UK business and facilitate growth in Europe.
