Leadership changes at Pilot Freight Services

Logistics firm Pilot Freight Services has appointed Gordon Branov as its new chief executive while current incumbent Richard Phillips moves up to the role of chairman.
Branov is currently chief operating officer and has worked for the company for 20 years. Meanwhile, John Hill, who is currently chief commercial officer and has worked for the company for 23 years, will be promoted to president after Lou Cortese retired from the role.
“We are very fortunate to have such a strong leadership team step up from within the company to raise Pilot to new heights,” said Phillips.
“John and Gordon have been, and will continue to be, successful strategic partners in our organisation who ensure the needs of the market, customer, and our employees are paramount.
“They will form the backbone of the team to lead Pilot to many more years of growth. In my own new role, I will be in a position to guide the company, and am excited to work hard to ensure its successful future.”
The company was formed in 1970 and last year was the world’s 23rd largest airfreight forwarder.
