CouriersPlease champions female leadership

Parcel delivery service CouriersPlease has grown its proportion of women in strategic positions – in FY2016, the company grew its female manager representation by six per cent, and in FY2017 increased it again, this time by nine per cent.
Now, 43 per cent of employees in CouriersPlease’s head office are women – almost double the representation of females in the Australian transport, postal and warehousing industry (22 per cent), which has the third lowest representation of females in any Australian industry.
Additionally, women make up 80 per cent of the senior management team.
The recently appointed Chief Operating Officer, Hoy Yen Hooper, recently joined CouriersPlease, bringing with her general management and strong commercial experience in the Australian and New Zealand logistics and supply chain sectors.
Hooper joined Chief Financial Officer Paula Sabbouh, the first female in the position at CouriersPlease, National Commercial Manager Hayat Horma, National Sales Manager Sharon King, Head of Customer Experience Kirsty Tuffley, Human Resources Manager Daisy Jacobs, National Marketing Manager Lissa Becker, National Sales Manager Wendy Bass, and Legal Counsel Clare Matthews.
“It was an exciting opportunity to join a strong team of women who are leading the transformation of the business, as it expands its delivery and courier network across the country and overseas,” said Hooper. “The logistics sector is changing, a shift we not only see at CouriersPlease, but in other businesses in this sector, with Australia Post appointing its first female to the top spot. As online shopping increases, and there are more parcels in the network, we look forward to seeing a further increase in the number of female franchisees we have on the ground.”
