In the latest of a series of appointments, Brisbane-based based property development specialist Insight Group, has given a strong hint as to its future focus with the appointment of respected Logistics industry professional, Rod Brooks.
Insight’s satisfaction with the response of the Supply Chain industry to its soon-to-be-completed Insight Logistics Park at Stapylton on the MI, midway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, has encouraged the company to actively seek out other suitable locations for similar facilities along the east coast.
Adelaide born Rod Brooks had the ideal training for his eventual career with Insight Group beginning as an engineering student, followed by experience in international export sales. He then spent six years as Sales Manager with a prominent storage systems company before joining Colby Engineering, now Dematic Logistics Systems.
Now based in Brisbane, Rod spent 11 years advancing through managerial positions in several states with Dematic, the acknowledged leader in the Logistics Systems industry.
At the same time he enhanced his management and business qualifications with a series of further professional qualifications. Rod is a current member of the Supply Chain and Logistics Association of Australia and is a well respected professional within the Logistics Industry.
Insight Director Rod Colwell said he was delighted with Rod Brooks’ acceptance of his invitation to join the company.
“We have worked closely with Rod in our development of the technological and construction initiatives that have made our innovative ‘Volumetric’ warehouse design a reality,” he says.
“We have seen at first hand his professionalism and ethical approach to business situations and we understand the regard in which he is held by the industry at large.”
“Rod will undoubtedly make a contribution to Insight that will enhance our capabilities across all our projects and accelerate our continued growth and success,” Colwell says.
The appointment of Rod Brooks closely follows that of John Porter in May as CFO and the Environment and Planning Lawyer Alison Ward in August to a strategically structured management team of a progressive company with an identified focus on regional areas of high demand.

• Insight Logistics Park at Stapylton on the M1 Motorway
