Staples' Darren Fullerton soon to be CEO of Winc.

They say timing is everything and that's the case with this year's Stationery News LIVE conference - 'Breaking Boundaries In a Changing Office Products Landscape' – to be held in Sydney on 21 August.

As a participant in the leadership panel, Darren Fullerton, Staples Australia/New Zealand president and soon-to-be CEO of Winc (the company's new name that will come into effect on 4 September) will be the man of the moment at this year's event.

Fullerton's participation in this year's OP conference coincides with Staples' transformation and rebranding under the ownership of private equity firm Platinum Equity, which acquired the trans-Tasman business earlier this year.

The panel session at this year's LIVE conference promises to be an informative and lively affair with a top line-up also including Brad O'Brien, CEO of Office Choice, Margaret De Francesco, head of marketing and merchandise at Office Brands, and Paul Yardley, CEO of GNS Wholesale Stationers.

Confirmed speakers at the half-day conference,to be held SMC Conference & Function Centre in Sydney's CBD, include:

  • Craig Woolford, director of research for Citi Australia/NZ, which has compiled a major report on the impact of Amazon on the Australian retail market.

  • Kim Collard, CEO of office products supplier Kulbardi, Australia’s largest Aboriginal-owned business.

  • Lance Kalish, co-founder of Yoobi and recognised as one of Australia’s most accomplished international consumer product entrepreneurs.
