Steel Executive Rod Gregory joins the Spectainer Board
Spectainer, a developer of specialised containers that are better economically, operationally and environmentally, is pleased to announce that Mr Rod Gregory has joined the Board of Directors effective 16 November 2020.
Spectainer’s Managing Director Nicholas Press said “Spectainer is excited to announce Rod’s appointment to the Board of Directors. Rod has amassed an amazing level of experience throughout his career, covering a variety of industries. Notably, his current interests in steel and metals will be extremely valuable for us going forward. As an entrepreneur with numerous successes, I am very much looking forward to his involvement and expertise as we scale.”
Mr Gregory said “I am excited to be a part of Spectainer and am looking forward to contributing to the Board. Spectainer’s COLLAPSECON collapsible economic container technology impressed me and as someone who deals with the issues of trade imbalance and empty containers, the COLLAPSECON solution has the potential to create real and sustainable change across the global shipping and logistics industries.”
Mr Gregory has over 45 years experience in the steel and metals related industries including distribution, importing and manufacturing. Specialising in business turnarounds by developing strategic direction with a strong focus on deployment and growth, Mr Gregory has lead various reporting divisions for corporate entities, developed and implemented strategic plans for off shore entities throughout Asia and Middle East and developed greenfield joint venture businesses in Australia.
The global problem of empty container inefficiencies currently cost the industry over USD $30.1 Billion each year and this cost is rising. Additionally, the environmental damage from storing, handling and transporting empty containers is significant. Spectainer’s COLLAPSECON drastically improves operational efficiencies resulting in environmental benefits and economic savings, thereby representing the next evolutionary progression of the humble shipping container.
