Printing Industries Association of Australia chief executive Bill Healey, says it’s time to question whether a banker is the best person for the top job at Australia Post.
“It may be time for someone with a different approach and a different background to try and take charge.”
“All we’ve heard for five years is Mr Fahour talking about the terminal decline of mail – it’s like the head of McDonalds saying beef burgers are bad for you!”
“You’ve got to ask yourself when someone is on about $4.5 million per year, should they continue to be rewarded when the organisation is running supposedly in a ‘crisis’,” Mr Healey said.
“You can point your finger at external factors as much as you like, but when you’re getting paid that much money, you have to take the community with you, particularly when you’re a government agency.”
