Mainfreight - Chief Financial Officer Retirement

Thursday 9th November 2023

Text too small?

It is with a degree of disappointment, but also pride, that we announce Tim’s intention to retire post our year-end result in June 2024.


Tim has been our CFO since the acquisition of Daily Freightways in 1994 and, prior to that, held various finance roles for Daily Freightways since 1984. A total of 40 years of dedicated and loyal, blemish free, service to our company. Tim played an integral role during the public listing of Mainfreight in 1996 and has held the CFO position ever since.


His integrity, honesty, and attention to detail has been exemplary. He has played a crucial and valuable role in advice, guidance, and the technical requirements of developing Mainfreight across 26 different countries with the variety and complexity of the accounting jurisdictions involved.


Tim has developed a very capable and professional accounting team around the world and therefore, we have been able to promote internally for the CFO role.


Graeme Illing, our New Zealand Financial Controller, will assume the role of CFO upon Tim’s departure next year. Graeme, who started with Mainfreight in May 2000, will transition to the role over the next seven months.


We are extremely grateful and proud to have had Tim with us during our journey and we acknowledge his tremendous contribution over this time. Tim is held in high regard by us all, team members and the market alike.


He retires with a huge vote of thanks for all he has accomplished for us.
