DGI Trading are pleased to announce the appointment of Christopher Chappell to its leadership team to support an exciting phase of business growth.

Heading up sales and operational teams as General Manager, Chris brings a wealth of knowledge to our team with over 24 years experience in the Mining and Earthmoving sector.

More recently Chris has spent time outside of our industry as an Executive Leadership team member for a national Signage and Marketing business as the General Manager – Sales for Australia, and is pleased to have returned to his mining and construction roots.
