Fleet safety and management technology firm Coretex has appointed a new chief executive following an extensive global search.  William Payne, who is chief information officer at building and construction giant Boral, will take over as chief executive on August 1. Retiring chief executive and founder Selwyn Pellett will remain on the Coretex board as a non-executive director. 

Payne comes to Coretex with experience as both chief information officer and chief strategy officer in companies in Australia, Europe and the US. He most recently led the creation and implementation of a digital strategy at Boral, reshaping the company’s IT function into Boral Digital Solutions and making it a pivotal element of the wider organisation’s future business strategy. Before that he spent more than nine years at global environmental services company, Veolia, with roles including executive general manager, strategy and performance ANZ and UK CIO.

Coretex chair Mark Giles says the appointment of Payne is a significant move for the company. “Coretex is positioned strongly for international growth in our key markets and we believe Payne has the skills, experience and vision to drive that growth.”
