Lorraine Sutcliffe has been promoted to Director, Head of HR, to help steer us through our expansion strategy. She says: “We understand that the success of the business is dependent on the strength of our team – and with this in mind, we’re delighted to announce a number of internal promotions. These opportunities fall in line with our company values of promoting from within and will help strengthen our inhouse leadership capabilities.”

 

Who else has been promoted?

Our Sales department grows with 3 internal promotions. Becky Boulter is promoted to Team Leader, Key Accounts, a brand-new role created to drive the team, focusing on meeting customers’ needs, and strengthening the hands-on support offered to existing and new large volume accounts.

Max Stanford and Ben Jeffery are promoted to Team Managers, Customer Relations. The additional management roles create a pathway for new recruits, facilitating the growth of the department with space for two new teams.

There are also 2 internal promotions in the Operations teams. Tom Falivena becomes Team Leader, Customs, and Wade Akhtar becomes Team Leader, Groupage.

To support the growth of the business, Lottie Baxter is promoted to Team Leader, Marketing and Communications, and Lorraine Sutcliffe, as Director, Head of HR, is also recruiting roles into the HR and Finance teams.

 

Peter Isler, Managing Director, comments: “As we grow our services, we’re focused on training and developing individuals so we can continue to deliver the best customer service in the UK logistics industry.

“Last year we expanded our office by an additional 5,000 sq ft ahead of our planned growth, and we’re excited to see our new capacity begin to fill in the coming months, watching how our business grows and evolves over the next year.”
