EV Cargo’s Palletforce has recruited one of the express distribution sector’s most experienced executives to its senior management team, to further strengthen the network’s partnership with members.
Chris Dennigan joins the company as Member Relations Director, where his role will be to work closely with the existing Palletforce membership, while also identifying and securing new additions to the growing network.
With a 23-year career in the industry, Chris has extensive experience in the pallet network sector, having previously held Network Director and Commercial Director positions before joining Palletforce.
His appointment further signals Palletforce’s commitment to the ethos of working in a partnership approach with members, as well as securing unrivalled quality and delivery performance in each postcode and building a platform for members to enable long-term, sustainable growth.
Palletforce Network Development Director David Breeze said: “We are delighted that Chris has joined us, especially at this exciting time when our network continues to strengthen and deliver clear competitive advantages for our members. He has considerable experience in pallet networks at a senior level and a proven track record of building lasting relationships with colleagues and members.
“Our network development strategy has focused on strengthening service, and we have been adding quality new members in numbers over the last 12 months, as well as identifying like-minded companies both as potential business partners or potential acquisitions.
“As a further addition to our talented management team, Chris will play a central role in keeping Palletforce and its membership ahead of the competition.”
A graduate of the Royal Berkshire Agricultural College and Henley Business School, Chris began his career as depot general manager with Target Worldwide Express in 1999.
He said: “Over the last 20 years I’ve watched Palletforce grow to become the leading network in the sector, and as part of EV Cargo it is only going to get stronger.
“But it’s a network that has been built on the quality of its membership, and I’m looking forward to the challenges and opportunities of working with members, old and new, as it continues to grow.”
