The results of the keenly-contested Board Elections of The Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport – CILT (UK) – have been revealed. Six board places were available, and the Institute is pleased to welcome three highly-talented and influential new members to the board, and the return of three equally well-known and effective members who were seeking re-election.
CILT (UK) is the leading independent professional body for individuals involved in logistics, supply chains and all transport, guiding its members throughout their career.
The new members are Alan Jones FCILT, Robbie Whitfield FCILT MBE and Christopher Hutchinson FCILT. Together with the reappointment of Martin Evans MILT and David Grahamslaw FCILT and the return of former Board Member Bernard Auton FCILT they bring experience in logistics and the supply chain, the bus and aviation industries, human resources, shipping, defence, humanitarian aid and education.
With vital investment decisions including HS2 (the new national high speed rail line), a possible future new aviation hub for London, and the state of the UK’s transport infrastructure, continuing to hold a very high public profile, this is a vital time for the appointment of these highly respected professionals to the Institute’s board.
CILT Chief Executive Steve Agg FCILT says: ‘The Institute wishes to thank everyone who stood for election. In a volunteer organisation this democratic process has a vital part to play in involving members and ultimately shaping the future of the Institute. The wealth of experience these new and returning members bring to the board will serve to strengthen our expertise and authority at this time when our profession is so often in the forefront of public debate and playing a vital role in ensuring Britain has the infrastructure in place to ensure its return to prosperity.’
