Linfox Executive Chairman honoured

In this year’s Queen’s Birthday Honours List, Linfox Executive Chairman Peter Fox, was awarded a Member (AM) in the General Division of the Order of Australia.

“I’m honoured to receive the award. It reflects Linfox’s leadership in the supply chain industry and the Fox family’s commitment to community support,” said Mr Fox.

His ‘service to the transport and logistics industry through a range of executive roles, and to the community, particularly to social welfare organisations’ was noted during the announcement.

Currently, Linfox is working towards a sustainability strategy to reduce its rate of carbon emissions by 50 percent by 2015.

“We decided we wanted to reduce Linfox’s impact on the environment,” Mr Fox said. “We owe it to our children and many other businesses are active in reducing their carbon footprint.”

Mr Fox is also involved in several charities including being an executive member of the Alfred Hospital Foundation; chairing the 2012 Prime Minister’s Olympic Dinner, Victorian Olympic Council; and fundraising for the Salvation Army’s St Kilda Crisis Accommodation Centre.

“My parents have always encouraged me to put back into the community and I am very proud to do so,” he said.
