JULY BUSINESS LEADERS LUNCHEON

MANUFACTURING: A KEY SECTOR FOR THE PORT STEPHENS ECONOMY

The manufacturing sector is a key industry in the Port Stephens economy, contributing 42% of total economic output and is responsible for generating 19% of the 22,689 jobs, driving employment in the region.

Our keynote speaker, Managing Director and CEO of Ampcontrol, Rod Henderson will present on the ‘Boom to Bust and Back Again’ journey that this locally based business has endured since the Australian mining market spiralled out of control in 2012. A story of survival, Rod will share how Ampcontrol critically evaluated the business at its most exposed and took small but meaningful steps to slowly recover in the face of a declining market. Looking at the highs and lows through the benefit of hindsight, Rod’s new vision for Ampcontrol is one based on diversification, innovation and sustainability.

ABOUT THE KEYNOTE SPEAKER

As Managing Director and CEO, Rod has full responsibility for all Ampcontrol Group operations including strategic direction, overall profitability, group structure, risk management and growth of the business. He is also leading the company to diversify its business capabilities to secure future success, including the implementation of key business improvement initiatives to ensure the business is best placed to meet customer demand, in line with the market needs.

ABOUT THE BUSINESS LEADERS LUNCHEON
