Why have senior executives walked out at Post?

Last week star recruit Tracey Fellows, Executive General Manager of Communication Management Services (CMS) head hunted by Ahmed Fahour to push the digital mail box resigned. This week Richard Umbers who joined Australia Post in 2012 as General Manager of eCommerce and Parcel Services resigned.

Other senior executives who have walked out since Mr Fahour’s appointment three years ago include the following:

    • Nic Nuske, General Manager, Sales and Marketing
    • Dorothy Hisgrove, Senior Management role
    • Alison Harrop, Chief Financial Officer
    • Catriona Larritt, General Manager, Decipha Digital MailBox
    • Jane McMillan, General Manager of External Affairs
    • Amanada Noble, Senior Manager
    • Stephen Cleary, CEO Star Track Express
    • Amanda Green, Head of Culture & Engagement
    • Alan Wildbore, Head of Safety
    • Sarah Fair, Head of Diversity & Inclusion
    • Jamie Iredale, Chief Procurement Officer
    • Maha Krishnapillai, General Manager, External Affairs

These departures beg the question: Who is next to go? Why do managers not want to work in, or work for Post anymore? According to media reports there is deep dissatisfaction among staff in regard to Mr Fahour’s erratic, autocratic and aggressive management style.
