Honious commented: “After 15 years with the company, I’m excited to build on the tremendous work of Tucker and honored to serve as president and chief executive, Americas.
“While these are uncertain times, we’re energised about the future. We have assembled a top-tier leadership team, and we have aggressive growth plans with our sights set on becoming a top three logistics provider in the industry.
“I’m confident we’re on the track to achieve this for a number of reasons; starting with our commitment to our clients and followed by the fact that we are incredibly strong in many areas, such as e-Logistics, that are helping our clients succeed now and ultimately shaping the future of logistics.”
Lombard added: “Under Tucker’s leadership, Geodis Americas had seen tremendous profitable growth. Tucker has played a key role in our management board being an excellent business partner to all. For all of this I would like to extend my sincere appreciation for these five years of continued success achieved with great dedication and enthusiasm.”
