Glen will be taking over from Mark Sullivan, who joined the Company in 2017 following the Group’s acquisition of Benfleet Forwarding Ltd and who will retire at the end of 2021. There will be a five-month handover period to ensure a smooth transition, with Mark assisting Glen in his new role from August 2021 until the end of the year.
Prior to joining the Company, Glen held senior management roles at Yusen Logistics, an international freight forwarder. During his three-year period, partly as European Regional Head of Ocean Freight, Glen was also responsible as Managing Director for the turnaround of the loss-making division in Italy by shifting staff engagement from a transactional culture to value driven solutions. Glen also fulfilled multiple senior positions at the UK division of DB Schenker. He was Regional Vice President of Ocean Product across North and East Europe from 2013 – 2016.
As previously announced in May 2021, in order to simplify the business, Xpediator is integrating the Group’s subsidiary brands across all UK divisions under the Delamode brand. High calibre Senior management with experience in larger transport logistics businesses will be essential in successfully managing the enlarged UK freight forwarding business, as well as creating future growth opportunities for Delamode Anglia.
Shaun Godfrey, COO of Freight Forwarding at Xpediator, said:
“First of all, I would like to thank Mark for all of his hard work over the years, and particularly for his recent management of the successful integration of the UK freight forwarding businesses. Mark began his successful career in freight forwarding when he was just 16 years old and went on to become a highly respected individual in our industry. It is reassuring that his replacement is equally experienced, with Glen having worked in the freight forwarding sector for over 30 years. I look forward to working with Glen as we embark on the next stage of growth within the recently integrated UK freight forwarding division.”
Glen Boyce, Managing Director at Delamode Anglia, commented:
“I am delighted to have joined Delamode Anglia. Xpediator is a fast growing business with new potential markets for the freight forwarding division to expand its services into and I am excited to start working with the team and hopefully making use of my experience of growing a freight forwarding business.”
