The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport has chosen as its next president Graham Inglis, chief executive EMEA of DHL Supply Chain.
He will take over the role of President at an inauguration lunch in May.
He takes over from Peter Hendy, the Transport for London commissioner. Hendy said: ‘Graham Inglis is a vice-president of the institute, the ambassador for our supply chain professional sector, and has presented our CILT Annual Logistics Lecture. As head of the 2012 Olympics Freight Forum, he is at the heart of our profession this year, and I am extremely pleased that the presidency will be in such excellent hands when I relinquish my role.”
Inglis is responsible for DHL Supply Chain’s business across Europe, Middle East and Africa. He is responsible for all supply chain operations in 30 countries, employing over 80,000 people. He joined the former Exel Logistics in 1995, and has held a number of international positions within the Group.
Inglis said: ‘I am delighted and honoured to have been nominated as president elect of the Institute. Peter Hendy has left a very strong legacy and will be a hard act to follow, but I am looking forward to working with him to ensure a smooth transition.”
