Scott Walker from Visa Global Logistics and Julian Leach from ParcelPoint have been announced as joint winners for this year’s prestigious The CEO Magazine Executive of the Year Awards – Transport and Logistics Executive of the Year.
Co-Founder and CEO, Julian Leach was declared the joint winner of Transport and Logistics Executive of the Year at The CEO Magazine’s Executive of the Year Award. He shares the title with Scott Walker, National Transport Manager of VISA Global Logistics.
Having launched a similar concept in the UK, Julian co-founded ParcelPoint in 2011, and today, the company counts businesses like Amazon, eBay and The Iconic among its partners.
Throughout the past 12 months, Julian has juggled leading the business and running the capital-raising process, while making strides forward such as the implementation of electric vehicles, for which he worked alongside business leaders throughout the retail market.
Scott’s most impressive achievement, no doubt, is transforming VISA Global Logistics from the 17th largest wharf cartage carrier in NSW to the third largest in Australia.
Under his leadership (since the start of 2019), the business has hit the A$500 million turnover milestone and opened five new offices globally. Scott’s establishment of a new facility in Erskine Park has helped circumvent Sydney congestion, getting deliveries to customers faster than ever.
