Long-standing Supply Chain and TDL industry stalwart David Doherty, OAM, stepped down today as National Chairman of the Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA).
David Doherty, OAM said, “The time is right to pass the baton to the next generation in SCLAA under the leadership of David Rogers. SCLAA is well positioned for future growth and to continue to meet and exceed members and partners aspirations. I have spent nearly forty years in the Supply Chain Profession and the TDL industry and have been privileged to watch it prosper and grow. My long time involvement in varied roles with SCLAA has provided great personal and professional benefit to me. I am grateful for my participation in the creation, and on-going development of SCLAA into a strong and vibrant association based entirely on delivering value to members.”
New SCLAA Chairman, David Rogers added, “David Doherty has been a great ambassador for the Supply Chain Profession and TDL industry over many years. He has provided leadership and mentoring to hundreds of individuals across Australia. David has also been instrumental in ensuring Supply Chain and Logistics courses in universities and TAFE organisations provide companies and students with the necessary competencies in Supply Chain. He is a down to earth person and just a great bloke. I am glad I have known him.”
Vince Aisthorpe, SCLAA Queensland President said, “David personally supported and contributed to the success of the Queensland Supply Chain and Logistics Conference for the last ten years. He is, and always will be an honorary Queenslander in our minds. The SCLAA in Queensland thank him for his contribution to this industry and we are proud to know him.”
Steve Macpherson, SCLAA Director commented, “For the past ten years I have observed the contribution of David to the SCLAA. That the SCLAA model is the most successful in Australia for members to develop their professional knowledge and networks is due largely to the superhuman efforts of David Doherty. There is much that we who enjoy the considerable benefits of the premier Australian Association for Supply Chain and Logistics Professionals and Practitioners, run by members for members, have to thank this fine man for. Thank you David.”
