As part of an international expansion plan, AEB has appointed Claire Umney general manager, replacing Mark Brannan who has been promoted to international business development director.
Umney’s business development plan includes expansion of current staff levels, a significant increase in UK market share and further establishing local brand recognition.
She has worked with AEB since 2008, and has some 12 years experience within the logistics and supply chain sector. Her past responsibilities have covered business process consultancy, business development and software implementation.
Brannan will now report directly to AEB’s chief executive officer at the company’s headquarters in Stuttgart. His global responsibilities will focus on developing new markets, key accounts and partner networks worldwide.
Brannan said: “Our international presence has grown significantly during the last ten years and we are keen to expand into new markets and strengthen our position in some of our existing markets.”
