Mark Calladine has become managing director of CMS, part of The Delivery Group, in the wake of the group’s recent management buyout.
Calladine has been the company’s sales director since 2013 and has more than 20 years’ experience in both logistics and print management solutions and has previously held senior positions at Romax Marketing & Distribution and DHL Global Mail.
The Delivery Group, which is led by Steve Stokes, James Wilkins and Paul Carvell, has grown revenues from £32m to more than £250m since 2011.
In March 2018 it sold its international e-commerce logistics business, P2P, to FedEx Corporation, opening the way for the MBO.
Alongside Calladine’s promotion, the buyout has led to several other changes to senior management; Steve Stokes is now group CEO and James Wilkins has moved up to the position of managing director at Secured Mail. Paul Carvell continues as executive chairman, and Mark Bigley, previously CEO at Secured Mail, remains as a non-executive director and consultant to the group.
