Meanwhile Martin Rantle has been named non-executive chairman: he previously held the role of vice president of sales for DHL.

Byers said: “Leading Pall-Ex in the UK is a fantastic opportunity and I am delighted to be part of the experienced team as we strengthen the business for the future. Supporting and developing our network in the UK is my number one priority as we help our members grow and future-proof their own businesses.”

Byers comments: “I cannot wait to get started! Leading Pall-Ex in the UK is a fantastic opportunity and I am delighted to be part of the experienced team as we strengthen the business for the future.

“Supporting and developing our network in the UK is my number one priority as we help our members grow and future-proof their own businesses.”

Group chief executive Kevin Buchanan said that the new appointments would “prove invaluable in accelerating our growth” in the next few years.

“We are proud to be reinforcing our team for this new era with such experienced and knowledgeable individuals as Barry and Martin, who will support Pall-Ex’s status as the number one network for quality.

“As a force in logistics, both are well-known and well-respected for making real impact, with proven results in developing operations at home and internationally, while also building pallet network memberships.”

The sale of Pall-Ex Group to its membership and senior management team was finalised last month.
