ASCI Initiative takes shape: New member of Ethics Committee

 

Sydney, 13 September 2017: The Australasian Supply Chain Institute (ASCI) is pleased to announce a new member of the ASCI Initiative’s Ethics Committee, Mike Owen.

Australasian Supply Chain Institute (ASCI), formerly apicsAU, is a premier non-profit, professional membership community that facilitates and enables the development and professionalisation of the Australasian Professional Supply Chain Community. The ASCI Initiative is devised into three committees (ethics, risk and technical) established to pave the way for professionalising supply chain management in Australia.

Mike Owen will join the Ethics Committee Chair, Steve Richardson.

Mike Owen is an experienced and talented facilitator, communicator and change agent with a large and diverse network who is typified with his calm and consistent professionalism, honesty, integrity, and a passion for assisting the development of others. Mike has nearly 35 years of involvement in senior inventory, procurement, logistics and supply chain, sales, marketing and executive management roles. Mike was contracted to Chainalytics Australia as a Supply Chain Engagement Specialist and is currently working with ChangeLogic as a Senior Client Engagement Consultant.

The ASCI Ethics Committee’s role is to:

1.     Oversee the ASCI Code of Ethics

2.     Create and oversee the applicable Confidential Ethics Complaint Reporting Procedures, and ethics advisory structures

3.     Review requests for advisory opinions; and

4.     Review ethics complaints and make recommendations to the Board  

Dr Pieter Nagel, CEO, ASCI, says ethics is at the heart of the very definition of being professional: “A disciplined group of individuals who adhere to ethical standards” making this committee vital to our long term goal within the ASCI Initiative to professionalise supply chain management.

“Mike has been part of the ASCI community from early on. I would like to formally welcome Mike to the Ethics Committee on behalf of ASCI. I am looking forward to his professional contribution to our Ethics Committee as we pave the way for professionalising supply chain management in this country."
