With a wealth of experience in procurement and strategic sourcing, particularly for large fleets, We are thrilled to welcome her aboard and look forward to her contributions!

Nina’s professional journey began as a Maritime Warfare Officer in the Royal Australian Navy, where she served for 12 years.
