Manufacturing Focus, one of the leading manufacturing and organisational improvement providers in Australia, has appointed an advisory board made up of a diverse group of industry leaders to ensure the company’s continuing success during a period of growth.

South Australian Businessman of the Year 2002, former Mitsubishi Motors CEO and Chair of Safe Work Australia Mr Tom Phillips AM is chairman of the Advisory Board. Mr Phillips is joined by Josh Simons, partner of legal firm Minter Ellison Lawyers; Chartered Accountant Richard Koral, Director of taxation and accounting firm EFC Group; and Manufacturing Focus managing director Mark Fusco.

“Our goal with the advisory board selection was to ensure an outside perspective and additional capability by appointing people from different sectors with different skill sets to compliment our growing needs,” Mr Fusco said.

“I often advise our clients that you need the right skills and the right information to enable you to make the right decision. As a relatively young and growing company ourselves, we will benefit for the additional depth of experience and knowledge from the advisory board; ensuring a greater focus on our strategic direction that is impossible when you are running the business day-to-day.”

The Adelaide-based company placed fourth in Fast Movers SA 2010, and building on this success has recently commenced its first international project.

Manufacturing Focus anticipates further growth this year as the resources sector looks to reduce the cost of extraction and demand increases from manufacturers looking for efficiencies in response to the high Australian dollar and anticipation of the “carbon tax”.
