New managing director for Palletline

Palletline has appointed Graham Leitch as managing director to replace Kevin Buchanan, who stepped down in August.

Leitch joins Palletline from member company ARR Craib where he held the position of group distribution director. He has held directorships with a number of high profile companies including anNational newspaper group and a large UK and European distribution network.

Palletline is a member-owned cooperative network with more than 6,000 vehicles, 12,000 staff and has access to over five million square feet of warehousing space.

Leitch said: “With the network handling record numbers of pallets and a wealth of strategic initiatives underway, Palletline is a forward thinking company with huge long and short term opportunities that I genuinely believe in. I will look forward to working closely with the membership and management team to seize the opportunities and plan for future growth.”

ARR Craib managing director Eddie Anderson said: “It became clear to all, including myself, that Graham was the best man for the job. As a shareholder member of Palletline, I was keen to ensure that Palletline benefits from the proactive first class leadership that we have enjoyed with Graham’s contribution at Craib’s, so I’d like to wish him and the network all the best with the move.”
