James Taylor | ANC
James Taylor
Managing Director

What you do at ANC?

High level strategic planning. I’m always looking at how new markets, models and developments in technology may positively impact our clients and our team of delivery professionals.

Transport career experience?

Twenty seven years in the light metropolitan transport industry plus extensive leadership roles with the Courier and Taxi Truck Association – five years as Treasurer and 12 years as President.

Favourite part of your job?

The diverse range of people I get to meet and collaborate with. Working on complex challenges and distilling them into an idea that is easy for people to understand and action.

How would you describe ANC if it was a person?

Every person is a complex organism, and ANC is no different. However, in a sentence, it’s passionate, dedicated and always wanting to improve the immediate situation.

What do you like to do when you are not working?

I like spending time with family, enjoy dinner parties with fine wine, food and friends. I have a thirst for learning, so enjoy reading. I love tinkering in my shed, welding poorly and fiddling with stuff around the house. Winter is my favorite time of year to enjoy skiing and being in the mountains surrounded by nature at its chilly, white best.

How do you help ANC deliver extraordinary experiences?

I look at the broader picture to frame the journey of the company and the people that make ANC such a special place. That means understanding the market forces, embracing change and looking at how we can improve the customer’s delivery experience for our clients through continuous improvements across transport safety, training, equipment, communication and technology and most importantly – relationships.
