Transport and logistics company, Diamond Bros, has announced a new Chief Operations Officer.
The South Australian trucking business today officially welcomed Hector Balestri to the role.
Balestri will be in charge of steering both daily operations and growth strategy for the company.
Previously he worked in the medical device industry with Edwards Lifesciences.
Before that Balestri worked at Capitol Chilled Foods Australia CCFA, where he oversaw the dairy and drinks distribution operations business.
“I’m looking forward to working with the amazing team at Diamond Bros, learning and growing from them and also being able to support them with the development of their plans for the company,” he said in a statement.
The Adelaide-based operation had provided its customers with tailored transport solutions since 1956.
With an early history in car carrying, the company has evolved to a dedicated interstate general carrier servicing all east coast capitals as well as Perth, Western Australia in predominantly B-double and B-triple applications.
“It is with great pleasure that Diamond Bros would like to welcome Hector Balestri as our new Chief Operations Officer,” the company said.
Kym McDermid serves as the Diamond Group of Companies Chief Executive Officer.
Last year the company added two new Mack Anthems for its linehaul division.
