WISEWAY Group has appointed Robert McNutt as a non-executive director in what the company said is part of its expansion strategy, particularly in the US market.

ASX-listed Wiseway, founded in 2005, provides integrated logistics services in Australia and New Zealand. It specialises in air and sea freight; import services; domestic transportation; and warehousing and customs clearance services.

Mr McNutt’s most recent role was chief financial officer at Lamb Weston, a US-based food processing company.

Wiseway chairman Michael Hughes said Mr McNutt’s deep insights into the US market, experience in the perishables and packaging sector, strong governance credentials and extensive business network would be invaluable to Wiseway as it accelerates its organic growth in the region.

“We are excited to work with him on the Wiseway Board and look forward to his contribution to the group,” Mr Hughes said.

Mr McNutt said Wiseway has a strategic vision and robust plans for long-term growth.

“I am honoured to be joining the company’s board and look forward to contributing to the group’s growth ambitions in the US market,” he said.

Mr McNutt’s appointment comes after Lin Xu advised she would resign as non-executive director, effective next Monday.
