Theo joins FTA

Theo de Pencier has succeeded Richard Turner as chief executive of the Freight Transport. He joins from Bibby Distribution, where he was chief executive, and a director of the Bibby Line Group.  He has over twenty years’ board level experience in the logistics and supply chain industry, working for NFC and Danzas before joining Bibby in 1999.  His earlier career was spent in sales and marketing with brand leading food and drink manufacturers Heinz and Diageo.
De Pencier said: “I have had a terrific eight years at Bibby, helping to grow the distribution business into a leading player and being part of a successful private, family owned group.  However, the opportunity to join FTA and develop further its industry leadership in terms of representation and services to members was too good to miss.  I am looking forward enormously to working with the talented team at FTA on behalf of the members and our industry.”
