The British International Freight Association has appointed Fred Osborn as its national chairman, to take over from Carson McMullan. Mark Bromley has been named vice chairman.
Osborn had worked as McMullan’s deputy since 2013, having joined the trade body in 2011. Previously, he also chaired BIFA’s Air Policy Group.
Since 2000, Osborn has been the co-owner of X-Pand International Freight. And his new deputy, Bromley, is sales and development manager at Allways International Forwarding.
BIFA director general, Robert Keen, said: “Like Carson, Fred and Mark have a broad range of external interests, and very wide experience at ‘the coal face’ helping to run their respective freight forwarding businesses. I’m certain that BIFA and its members will benefit from their appointments as National chairman and vice chairman, respectively.”
