DDLS has appointed Kenneth Hoppe as its new General Manager. 

DDLS People is owned and operated by DDLS Group, Australia’s largest provider of IT training, and leverages a 20-year history of delivering complex logistics and supply chain projects, and learning and development activities to Australian government agencies, primarily the Department of Defence.

Taking over from Karen Smith, who previously held the role, Ken will be focused on the implementation and development of DDLS People’s strategies and policies, with the aim of expanding the business into new sectors.

Ken will also be managing existing partnerships with public sector clients – mostly in defence – leveraging his acute understanding of the industry environment. He has spent the last 15 years providing professional services to Defence and the Defence Industry, in particular, the Capability Acquisition and Sustainment Group (CASG) and the Chief Information Officers group (CIOG), making him an invaluable asset to DDLS People.

“DDLS People has an established track record of delivering results with commitment and passion over two decades to some of Australia’s biggest agencies. I’m eager to join the team and leverage my industry experience to help organisations drive a path towards workflow optimisation, improved business productivity and profitability”, says Hoppe.

Prior to his appointment, Kenneth was the Director of Defence for Augment Resources, a professional services and consultancy firm in Melbourne. He has over 30 years of experience in technical support, logistics engineering, instructional analysis, contracting, and project management, having also worked in various senior and executive management roles for Nova Systems and Logistic Solutions Australia.
