Logistics and supply chain specialist, Suttons Group, has appointed a new Regional Director for its European business.
David Ker previously worked for Suttons from 1995-99, where he was Operations Director and then Business Development Director. He re-joins the company from DB Schenker Rail (UK) Ltd, where he was Commercial Director for seven years. Prior to this, he spent five years with TDG (Transport Development Group) Plc, as Business Development Director in the European chemicals division.
David said: "I’m happy to be back at Suttons at such a significant point in its growth. Suttons is a truly international business now and its reputation for customer service delivery is what fuelled my return."
In his new role as Suttons’ Regional Director Europe, David will be managing a team of 85 employees in the UK and across mainland Europe. He will be based at Suttons head office in Widnes.
Suttons CEO, John Sutton, commented: "David brings with him a wealth of international logistics expertise to the business. He joins us at a very exciting time in Suttons’ development. As a former employee he was involved in the early stages of our international expansion, so it’s fitting that he should return when our growth programme has already seen us make our presence felt across six continents."
Suttons is based in Cheshire, UK and operates globally with key business centres in Antwerp, Ludwigshafen, Houston, Kuantan, Le Havre, New Jersey, Shanghai, Singapore, Khobar and Tokyo.
