Michael Gormally


Michael moved to Australia in 2012, leaving behind a small rural village on the west coast of Ireland. After completing university Michael went straight into the manufacturing industry working across Europe and eventually ending up in Perth.

Having no experience in the shipping nor container world, Michael started at the bottom and within 12 months of landing in Perth, Michael was the youngest state manager in, at the time, one of the largest Shipping Container companies in Australia.

With a rapid spreading reputation of being a ‘go-getter’ Michael took the opportunity to become National General Manager for another Shipping Container company, where running staff across major capital cities, projects across all of Australia and procuring equipment globally he cemented his love for the industry and skills in which to be successful. Now with nearly a decade of experience his love for the industry shines bright.

Michael is passionate about continual growth both professionally and personally. Michael is continually enrolling in new courses and attending peer groups of like minded, thought challenging people.

A Dad and a gym enthusiast you will catch Michael running out of day-care, into the gym and straight to the coffee shop in early hours of the mornings.
