Christine Holgate, CEO of Australia Post.

Ingo Bohlken of Deutsche Post and former Linfox CEO Annette Carey will join Australia Post as part of a restructure by the national mail carrier’s boss, Christine Holgate.

Bohlken, formerly of Deutsche Post, will come on board as executive general manager, products and innovation. “Ingo joins our team from Germany, where for 17 years he held a number of significant positions at Deutsche Post,” said Holgate. “We are aiming for Ingo to join the business formally in early August.”

Carey will serve as Australia Post’s executive general manager, international, after four years at the helm of shipping company Linfox. “Annette is an outstanding executive and has considerable logistics and international experience,” said Holgate. “She has deep insights into freight and road transport, many of the same large customers as ours and expanding businesses in Asia – Linfox now also operates in eight Asian countries.”

The two appointments are part of a shakeup that has created five new executive positions, as part of Holgate’s focus on supporting customers, optimising investments, and returning to sustainable growth while managing change.
