JOHN Eleftheriou was an outstanding contributor to the development of Supply Chain & Logistics Association of Australia (SCLAA). John passed away on Sunday afternoon in Adelaide 3/01/21.

As a National Director (2010–2017), and President of the South Australia Division, John always exhibited entrepreneurial and business acumen in his SCLAA roles.

John was also the chief judge for the Australian Supply Chain & Logistics Awards (ASCLA) from 2014 to 2017 and was heavily involved in the establishment of the Darwin / NT chapter.

John had a distinguished career within supply chain having had senior roles with Arnott’s Biscuits, Berri Ltd, Faulding/Mayne, Philmac and, of course, Eleftheriou & Associates.

A passionate promoter of SCLAA members entitlements and benefits, he was articulate, knowledgeable, principle, and forthright.

John was at home in every formal and informal environment and excelled as a “mate” and “confidant” to many people.

His understated Aussie humour was a delight. John took the initiative in rebirthing the SCLAA South Australian Division at an incredibly challenging time. He will be remembered with great respect whenever the success of SCLAA is considered.

Our condolences to his family wife Trish, daughter Samantha and son Michael.
