Anode Engineering would like to announce and welcome our newly appointed Managing Director, Mr Wayne Thomson. Wayne has been active in the corrosion industry for several years and will be relocating from Auckland, New Zealand to Loganholme, Queensland as part of the transition into his new role. Our existing Managing Director, Wayne “Monty” Burns will be assuming the role of group chairman.
Over the past few years, Wayne Thomson has been the Market Development Manager for Australia and New Zealand for Anode Engineering Ltd in addition to managing Anode Engineering’s New Zealand supply company, Lordco (CWG) New Zealand Ltd. As he commences his new role in the company, Wayne will be relinquishing his chairmanship of the Auckland division of the ACA (Australasian Corrosion Association) New Zealand Branch Committee Membership and New Zealand representation on the ACA council. He will no doubt become a familiar face in the Queensland ACA branch.
Wayne started out in the nuclear industry as a Mechanical Engineer and subsequently went on to work in the chemical process and packaging industries. He has worked in South Africa, Italy, New Zealand and Australia and completed an MBA at Auckland University in 2007. With this experience working in a variety of countries, industries and roles, Wayne is comfortable in the industrial environment and enjoys engaging with people from all manner of backgrounds.
The team at Anode Engineering and Lordco extend a personal welcome to Wayne “Tomo” Thomson, his wife Jo and their girls and look forward to beginning the next chapter for Anode Engineering.
