Aussie company FourPL Pty Ltd has appointed prominent CIO Chris Fechner to a customer advisory role focussing on supply chain and IT strategy and governance. Fechner has strong experience in the Transportation and Rail industries.
Fechner was previously the CIO at Queensland Transport and Main Roads, and also oversaw the ICT program at Queensland Rail to legally and functionally separate QR Ltd into two companies. During this period, QR also won a Customer Award from SAP for Best Visibility Project using event management to improve the coal billing process and delivering significant benefits to the company.
Anthony Hawkins, CEO, FourPL says Fechner brings a customer CIO perspective to the business, reinforcing their focus on building and delivering value to customers through clear, practical roadmaps together with benefits identification and realisation programs.
Fechner believes that working with FourPL is a great opportunity to get across the leading edge of supply chain solutions. His strong background in transport and logistics will bring an in-depth perspective on the customer side, enabling FourPL to better address CIO-specific requirements.
