Touya to lead Dachser’s US management team

Freight forwarder Dachser has named Vincent Touya as managing director of its US-based organisation. 
Touya, who has been with the family-owned German company for over 30 years, will join Dachser at its US regional office in Atlanta from February next year.
He succeeds Frank Guenzerodt, who had been with Dachser for 14 years. Said a Dachser spokesperson: Frank Guenzerodt was in charge of transforming Dachser US from a small country organization into a key pillar of Dachser’s global network."
Guido Gries, managing director of Dachser’s Air and Sea Logistics Americas business unit, will head the company in the interim. “Touya has been successful in expanding the air and sea freight business in France and North Africa and we look forward to his contributions in the US market,” said Gries.
Prior to that assignment, Touya was also head of sales for Dachser France’s overland transport organisation. “With his thorough understanding of both business fields, he is well placed to develop and implement integrated, intercontinental supply chains for US customers,” noted Gries.
