Prior to his appointment, Hoppe was the Director of Defence for Augment Resources, a professional services and consultancy firm in Melbourne.

Lumify says Hoppe 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.

Lumify People says Hoppe will also be managing existing partnerships with public sector clients – mostly in Defence – leveraging his acute understanding of the industry environment.

“Lumify 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”, said Hoppe.

Lumify People partners with public sector and Defence organisations to help solve problems, large and small. With 20 years of experience in logistics support, project management and training, Lumify People is powered by a team of passionate and dedicated professionals and the national reach and expertise of the Lumify Group (Previously DDLS).
