, , , , ,

EV Cargo has made series of executive and management appointments following the successful group-wide festive trading period.

EV Cargo has four operating segements: express, global forwarding, technology and logistics. Following the consolidation of six UK logistics businesses in November 2018, the chief executives of each segment take a place on the group board while still retaining their current roles within each individual company. They will report directly to EV Cargo chief executive Heath Zarin, who will head the logistics segment.

The individual business saw some management changes. Duncan Eyre has been appointed managing director of CM Downto. Andy, Richard and John Downton have transferred to non-executive roles.

Zac Brown has joined CM Downton as operations director while finance director Ben Armstrong moves to the role of finance director of the EV Cargo logistics unit.

Steve Back has been appointed Palletforce chief financial officer, replacing Neil Carpenter who has been appointed as a senior advisor.

Mel Brockhouse and Aaron Scott will become joint managing directors of NFT as Ross Eggleton becomes senior advisor for EV Cargo to develop strategic initiatives across the group.

Clyde Buntrock is to take over as chief executive of Allport Cargo Services in March as Charles McGurin moves to a non-executive role within the EV Cargo group.

Andy Humpherson continues in his existing position of managing director of Jigsaw.

“With the appointment of chief executives for each operating segment, along with key strategic management changes across the individual businesses, we’ve created a robust structure to help deliver our long-term strategy of added value to our customers and sustained growth across the group,” said EV Cargo chief executive Heath Zarin. “One of the main priorities in creating EV Cargo was to ensure the needs of our customers are consistently met across all parts of the business.”
