I just wanted to take this opportunity to say hi to all the members of AIDN. I am a passionate supporter of ensuring that Australian companies have the chance to compete for work on all Australian Defence programs and that you all can compete in a fair and equitable manner. This should be an exciting time for Australia’s Defence Industry and I know that many of you are being frustrated. My role is to advocate loudly and often for you. I will call out poor behaviour and praise good work. I intend to be heavily connected to CASG and Government ensuring that you and your businesses are not forgotten nor disregarded.

Chair of the Board - Carl Quarterman   

Carl is the current Managing Director of Queensland Gaskets, a family owned company established by Carl’s grandfather 70 years ago. Carl developed his skills as a supply chain expert in the oil and gas industry, succeeded his father as MD and is ushering the company into the modern era of high technology manufacturing.

Carl is passionate about Australian Manufacturing. Queensland Gaskets, a genuine Australian SME, joined AIDN seeing that organisation as a dedicated support group assisting SMEs to be successful in the Australian Defence Industry, through advocacy and networking.  Carl has fulfilled many roles across the AIDN Executive including Queensland State President, and National Deputy Chair.  Carl's desire to see SMEs represented by a single voice has been a force to drive to a single national entity ensuring regional representation is maintained to allow Australian industry the opportunity to win more Defence related work.
