Seeley International founder and Executive Chairman, Mr Frank Seeley AM said that Shane’s skillset spanning all key areas of senior management as well as his academic knowledge made him the perfect choice for the critical role. Mr Chisholm, who has recently completed the Senior Executive MBA program at the University of Melbourne, comes with a comprehensive track record in leading a national sales team and having a strong customer service focus.

Mr Seeley is confident Shane’s strategic leadership will support their dealer network and take them from strength to strength.
