Peter Goodwin, Group CEO, says of Colleen…”Colleen has enormous knowledge of the business. She is one of a handful of people that have been employed with Remington long enough to be a source of corporate truth. I first met Colleen when she was managing our Logistics operation in Lae, way back in 2015. Her maturity, her professionalism and her knowledge all led me to decide that we needed her in Port Moresby, at Head Office, in Group Shared Services. I was honored to appoint her as the Group’s first Papua New Guinean [and female] Logistics Manager, a role that she excelled in. She has journeyed through other senior management roles over the past eight years. Today, as a senior member of our Top Team, Colleen is not only a valuable asset, she is a true leader and shining example for the rest of us. I couldn’t imagine coming to work without Colleen being here, she’s not only a valuable employee, she’s a friend”.
