Pattullo arives at Ceva

John Pattullo has finally taken up his position as Ceva as chief executive officer replacing replacing Dave Kulik who becomes vice chairman of the board of directors of Ceva Group. The appointment was announced in January.
Pattullo previously headed DHL’s £4.8bn EMEA contract logistics business as chief operating officer.
Ceva is in the process of taking over freight forwarder EGL. “I am very excited to come on board Ceva at a time when these two great companies have joined forces. We have created one of the world’s major players in the global supply chain industry, supported by a talented and experienced leadership team. Ceva has the ability now, more than ever, to offer our customers a world-class service. ” said Pattullo.
As a result of the merger, the company will operate two divisions, Ceva Contract Logistics and Ceva Freight Management. Both divisions will report to Pattullo, who will lead the newly formed company, as well as the contract logistics division. Joe Bento, formerly president and CMO of EGL, will head the freight management division headquartered in Houston, Texas.
The Contract Logistics division has been regrouped into four regional areas: Americas, led by Jerry Riordan; North Europe, led by acting executive board members Neil Crossthwaite – UK, Christian Fuerstaller – Central & Eastern Europe, Onno Meij – Benelux; South Europe, led by Gianfranco Sgro; and Asia Pacific, led by Vittorio Favati.
