He will be based in Australia.

Allen joined Linfox in 1977 in a senior finance role and was appointed Group Finance Director in 1981. He had overall responsibility for the public float of the company in 1986 and its subsequent privatisation in 1987. In 1997, he was appointed Managing Director of Linfox International, covering operations in Thailand, Malaysia, Hong Kong and the UK. In 2005, he became Group Finance Director and Chief Financial Officer and in October 2006 joined the board of Linfox Armaguard (the cash security division of Linfox). During Allens time there, Linfox Group grew from A15 million to A1.5 billion and carried out a number of acquisitions.
