Davies Turner makes four appointments

Davies Turner Group has made four appointments, with Alan Williams becoming national sales and marketing director for the group with responsibility for developing the group’s logistics, overland and ocean freight operations.

Williams’s appointment sees him vacate his position as director at the group’s Dartford freight terminal, a vacancy that will be filled by Edward Stephenson. A graduate of DT’s apprenticeship scheme, Stephenson was previously one of the company’s business systems analysts and has also worked at Davies Turner Air Cargo’s Heathrow base.

Philip Stephenson, Davies Turner Group chairman, said: “These appointments demonstrate our strong, long term commitment to growing the business and to further investment in sales and development, and are part of an on-going process at every level of the Group to build our winning teams and safeguard the future.”

Following the retirement of Mike Dean at Davies Turner Birmingham, Emily Stephenson becomes director for the Midlands hub, which is now the largest in the Group.

Davies Turner Air Cargo has promoted James Wheatley to sales director.
