SEKO Logistics has appointed Richard MacLaren as senior vice president, global e-commerce.

MacLaren will be responsible for executing and improving the overall strategy and structure for SEKO’s e-commerce business.

He will lead the SEKO team in delivering e-commerce logistics solutions that help clients enable global supply chain growth quickly and sustainably.

MacLaren brings over 20 years of experience in supply chain, logistics, contract logistics, e-commerce, and cross-border e-commerce to his new role.

Prior to joining SEKO, he was the global senior vice president for consumer goods and e-commerce at Hellmann Worldwide Logistics and led teams across the world, including Asia, Oceania, Europe and the Americas.

He was also part of the global leadership team reporting into Hellmann’s supervisory board in Germany.

Following an early career in finance, MacLaren transitioned into sales and commercial roles followed by a leadership role involving the creation of a North American third-party logistics (3PL) and supply chain consultancy business.

“Global ecommerce demand only continues to increase,” said Steen Christensen, chief operating officer at SEKO. “To efficiently and successfully cross borders, retailers are looking to partner with logistics providers who are prepared to meet their needs around on the world and in individual local markets.

“Richard brings that leadership expertise. He’s the right person to lead the future of our ecommerce business and help our clients move their supply chains forward.”

SEKO entered the e-commerce fulfilment market in 2011. Last year, the company launched SEKO Ecommerce, its dedicated business unit focused on global e-commerce solutions.

“The global supply chain and ecommerce market is rapidly evolving, but the SEKO team has built a foundation to respond to these changes effectively. This team moves fast, with sound strategy, and I feel energized to be joining this group of logistics experts,” said Maclaren.
