Silk Contract Logistics appoints new COO

Wharf cartage and distribution firm, Silk Contract Logistics, has announced the appointment of a new Chief Operating Officer.

Dani Aquilina was appointed to the role this week after 14 years as COO of the Reject Shop.

She joins Silk later in the month.

“I am excited to take my experience and passion for supply chain and the customer into this new role,” Aquilina said via a LinkedIn post.

“It has been great to meet and connect with Brendan Boyd, John Sood, Nicole Sullivan, Brendon Pentland, Matt Hannah,” she said.

“I look forward to working with all of you and the team as we continue the Silk journey and make it easy for customers to do business.”

At The Reject Shop, Aquilina was accountable for all operating functions including store operations, supply chain, new store development and space optimisation.

She also helped oversee business optimisation, in which operational costs were a focus along with support for business growth requirements.

Silk Contract Logistics had been enjoying a steep upwards trajectory with several high profile acquisitions and the opening of a new facility in Brisbane prior to the arrival of the COVID crisis.

At present the company operates 21 sites nationally and billed for over 283, 300 containers according to FY 2021 results.

In that same period Silk reported revenue of $323.3 million, a 28.6 per cent increase year-on-year.
