Palletline has announced the board appointment of its former Head of Hubs Richard Gutsell who becomes Operations Director with responsibility for hub operations, network service quality and IT infrastructure.
Joining the business from City Link in 2015, Richard brings a wealth of experience to the role and has used the last two years to consolidate and enhance Palletline’s efficiencies and hub capability in what has become an increasingly competitive pallet network sector.
“I am delighted to have been formally appointed to the Palletline Board, my drive and focus is ensuring that Palletline maintains its position as the premier pallet network, offering operational and service excellence to our 100% Member owned network.”
Palletline Managing Director Graham Leitch said: “Richard has more than proved his mettle by helping to reshape our hub capability and take its status from ‘fit for purpose’ to marketleading. It is the hub’s excellence that has been attractive to all the new members we have recruited in the last two years, so it was natural that following this outstanding period with the business we should reward Richard’s contribution to our collective success with a seat at the board table.
We have already experienced his contribution to the business and look forward to him adding further value to Palletline moving forward.”
