Global CEO Martin Thaysen Visits Australia
Last week was an exciting time for our Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne teams as Martin Thaysen, CEO of the Santa Fe Group visited our branches and spent time discussing the future of the company. Martin’s visit has been focussed on the Australian Budget Review, but has included plenty of activities including a lunch in Brisbane, with the opportunity to ask questions before a special viewing of the Melbourne Cup. While in Brisbane, Martin accompanied Australian CEO Andrew Simpson to meet with Mindpearl, who we have recently partnered with and will be providing services to us primarily from their Suva office. In Sydney, Martin met with our Visa and Immigration General Manager Ivan Chait, as well as NSW State Manager Mark Howe, and Charles Garner from Move Dynamics.
The visit culminated with a very productive few days reviewing the Australian Budget at our Head Office in Melbourne, and the time in Melbourne also allowed staff members another opportunity to ask questions of Martin in a town hall meeting and lunch on Thursday afternoon. We would like to thank Martin, as well as our Global CFO Christian Laursen for taking the time to visit our branches and speak with our people, and we are excited about what the future holds for Santa Fe.
