Holgate to run rival

Former Australian Post boss Christine Holgate has been appointed CEO of Global Express – one of her former employer’s rivals. “I am really excited about it, and I want to look forward. I’ve spent 6 months having to look backwards,” she said yesterday. Global Express has $3 billion in annual revenue and employs 8,000 workers in Australia and New Zealand. The months-long saga appears to be winding down with the two parties agreeing to mediation talks. And next week, a Senate inquiry is due to hand in its report on Holgate’s departure as chief postie following the purchase of expensive watches as rewards for senior execs. Holgate says she still hasn’t heard from PM Scott Morrison, but he can “find my number on the internet, and I will take his call any day,” she said. Maybe a letter’s in the mail?
