After a 13-year tenure, Aramex CEO, Peter Lipinski, has decided to leave the business.
Lipinski will step down at the end of September and Andy Van Der Velde will succeed him as Regional VP Oceania, with responsibility for Aramex Australia and New Zealand.
Global logistics company, Aramex, purchased the Australian and New Zealand operations of Fastway Couriers in 2016, rebranding the network to reflect its position as a key division of Aramex global operations.
The Australian network includes 28 regional franchises and more than 800 courier franchisees, while in New Zealand there are 18 regional franchises and more than 280 courier franchisees.
Lipinski, according to Aramex, led the company through a period of extraordinary growth, including the company’s Australian operations rebrand from Fastway to Aramex. He was also instrumental in steering the company through unprecedented change as it navigated the pandemic and the exponential rise in e-commerce.
“After 13 fantastic years with Fastway, then Aramex, I’m looking forward to exploring new opportunities,” said Lipinski. “I’ve thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the dynamic freight and logistics sector and would particularly like to thank the Australian team, including the regional franchisees who contribute immensely to Aramex’s success.”
