The Australasian Supply Chain Institute (ASCI) has appointed Ivan Imparato as Chief Executive Officer (CEO), a move the organisation says is in service of its strategy to bring professionalisation to the supply chain domain.
Henry Brunekreef, President, ASCI, said Imparato’s appointment demonstrated the board’s commitment to to elevate the supply chain management field as a profession and a professional community in Australasia.
“As the representative of the board, I am pleased with Ivan’s appointment and am looking forward to working with him and the team on fulfilling our promise to our members; to our employees; and to our volunteers,” Brunekreef said.
Imparato has officially stepped down as ASCI Vice President, but will remain on the board as a Director. The board will shortly assign a new Vice President.
Ivan Imparato is a Registered Operations Practitioner (RegPracOps) and a senior executive in the supply chain industry, who brings 30 years of experience in a corporate setting.
“I am excited to see the vision of supply chain management becoming a formal profession in Australia getting closer to reality,” said Imparato in a statement.
“This will be a first in Australian history, shaping the cornerstone of our industry and continuing the legacy and rich history of our Institution when our predecessors brought APICS [Inventory Control Society] to Australia in the 1970s to set best practice standards for inventory management.”
