The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport has apppointed Kevin Richardson as its new chief executive.
Richardson will join the Institute on December 1 for a brief period of handover and will take over from outgoing chief executive Steve Agg, who is stepping down after nearly ten years in the role, on January 1.
Richardson joins the Institute from XPO Logistics, formerly Norbert Dentressangle, where he held the role of European development director for four years. Prior to that Richardson spent 20 years at TDG progressing from implementation director to strategic development director.
An experienced senior logistics executive with over 35 years’ experience in the sector, Richardson has extensive knowledge in operational and project management across Europe and has been a member of the Institute for 28 years.
Professor Richard Wilding, chairman of the CILT Board said: ‘We are delighted to announce Kevin Richardson as the Institute’s new chief executive. He will lead the Institute with commitment, energy and a wealth of expertise into a new era within the logistics and transport sector.’
Beverley Bell, CILT President and senior traffic commissioner for Great Britain said: ‘I am looking forward to working with Kevin in his new role as chief executive of the Institute. His experience in the logistics and transport sector will ensure the Institute continues to grow as the profession expands and develops.’
