FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx and leading cargo transportation company, has appointed David Binks as its regional president for Europe, Middle East, Indian Subcontinent and Africa (EMEA), effective from January 1, 2014.
He will succeed Gerald P Leary, who is retiring from FedEx Express after 39 years of distinguished service.
In his new role, Binks will be responsible for the broader leadership and strategic direction of FedEx Express across the entire EMEA region. He will be based at the company's EMEA headquarters in Brussels, Belgium.
"David has been very instrumental in the strategic expansion of our European network over the past few years,” said David J Bronczek, president and chief executive officer of FedEx Express.
“He has helped significantly enhance our capabilities in Europe, and his appointment provides a continuity of leadership that will be extremely valuable as we build on our presence in the region and serve even more customers in the years to come."
Michael Holt, currently CEO of FedEx UK and vice president of Operational Integration Europe, will assume Binks’ current role as senior vice president of European Operations.
“Jerry has been a valuable member of our leadership team, and has set very high standards with his tremendous work in EMEA. He leaves the team on a clearly defined path for a great future, and we wish him all the best,” said Bronczek commenting on Leary’s retirement. - TradeArabia News Service
