Fiona Gunalan

Fiona Gunalan likes working with parts stock, is studying for a Bachelor of Business and … is also a Chef ! After working as a chef, Fiona found she preferred “organising things”. Cummins took her on as an apprentice parts interpreter, and after 8 years, Fiona found the most enjoyable part of the role for her was inventory management and the warehouse. She spent a few years with Caterpillar, and then moved to coal train logistics. Early in 2015, Torquepower General Manager Andrew Lawrence offered Fiona the role of Warehouse and Logistics Manager.

“I’ve done plenty of stock-takes over the years, and I have introduced cycle stock counts so we do a bit of the hard work every day. It helps the customer in the end as the parts are better organised and controlled. Studying a Bachelor of Business in Supply Chain and Logistics Management, Fiona doesn’t get much spare time, but when she does, enjoys the beach, reading or spending time with her husband and the menagerie – 2 dogs, one Havenese and one Pug cross, and 2 tame parrots Charlie and Catalina.
