Glyn Davies, who has launched and sold two major logistics companies, has been appointed a non-executive director of Culina Group, the chilled logistics specialist.
Davies set up Russell Davies in 1974 building it into a £100m business before selling it to Securicor, which then went on to become part of DHL. After that he co-founded Hanbury Davies which grew to more than £50m in sales before selling that to Wincanton in 2008.
Culina has plans to double the size of the business within the next five years through organic growth and strategic acquisition and this new appointment is designed to add more insight from the road haulage and transport sectors at the non-executive level.
Culina chief Thomas van Mourik said: “The next five years are pivotal for us and Glyn’s expertise and support could not come at a better time. He will be instrumental in supporting our strategic plans to double the business by 2016.”
Since 2008 Davies has focused on business interests including Hanbury Riverside, a commercial vehicle contract hire and sales company, and a property development organisation which he manages with his son. He has also previously held non-executive director roles at a number of businesses.
“Culina is a big business with ambitious plans,” says Glyn Davies. “I’ve known Thomas van Mourik for many years and I am looking forward to helping the business grow by sharing my experience and insight.”
