Culina board changes to focus on chilled

Market Drayton, UK:  Euan Jackson has been appointed group transport director at Culina Logistics where he will oversee all transport matters within the group.

Mick McCarron, Culina’s current transport director will now focus primarily on its chilled operations.  McCarron, who will report to Jackson, will be looking at such areas as driver performance, reducing overall road miles and cutting empty running, the company says.

Culina will appoint a second transport director to oversee ambient transport.

The management reorganisation is part of Culina’s plan to double the business by 2016, says Thomas van Mourik, group chief executive.  “This is another step in building a stronger strategic team to deliver our plans.  Euan, Mick and the rest of the team have an excellent blend of expertise and experience to ensure we continue to provide even more added value to our specialist food and drink logistics services.”

Jackson was previoiusly  interim managing director at Samworth Brothers Distribution and has also held senior posts at Wincanton, most recently as its managing director for recycling.

The announcement follows last month’s appointment of Glyn Davies, former owner of Russell Davies and Hanbury Davies and chair of dealership Hanbury Riverside, as non-executive director.
