The Davies Turner Group has made four important senior management appointments within its two main trading subsidiaries.
Alan Williams, previously Director at Dartford, has become national Sales and Marketing Director for Davies Turner & Co, responsible for developing the Group's logistics, overland and ocean freight operations.
He will be responsible for determining the overall sales and marketing strategy across Davies Turner & Co, with direct responsibility for major customers. Working alongside the regional field sales teams, he will be responsible for building the company's presence in the market.
Replacing Alan as Director at Dartford is Edward Stephenson. A graduate of DT's apprenticeship scheme, he was previously one of the company's business systems analysts and has also worked at Davies Turner Air Cargo's Heathrow H.Q.
Following the retirement of Mike Dean at Davies Turner Birmingham, Emily Stephenson becomes Director responsible for the Midlands hub which is now the largest in the Group.
Emily has a Masters degree in Logistics and Supply Chain Management from Cranfield University and brings to the task a wide practical knowledge of the industry as well as heading up an experienced management team in both freight forwarding and 3PL logistics.
Meanwhile the Board of Davies Turner Air Cargo (DTAC) has promoted James Wheatley to Sales Director. His great experience both in the UK and overseas including a stint in the Far East will be invaluable to DTAC, which has produced five record-breaking years in a row and has recently made significant capital investments at its Heathrow headquarters.
Davies Turner Group chairman, Philip Stephenson says:
"These appointments demonstrate our strong, long term commitment to growing the business and to further investment in sales and development, and are part of an ongoing process at every level of the Group to build our winning teams and safeguard the future."
