EV Cargo appoints CFO of Global Forwarding & Technology 16 November 2021

Strengthening global finance platform to enable growth and expansion

EV Cargo has announced the hiring of a new CFO of Global Forwarding & Technology, one of the leading services within the firm. Mr. David Edley will be based in London, UK, and will be responsible for leading EV Cargo’s Global Forwarding & Technology finance functions. It follows the announcement of Ms. Chia Min Tan as Global CFO of EV Cargo on 03 November.

Mr. Edley brings significant and highly relevant global and industry experience to this important role. Prior to joining EV Cargo, Mr. Edley was based in Jersey as the Group Financial Controller at CPA Global, the world’s leading IP software and tech-enabled payment services group, where he was responsible for group reporting across more than 100 international subsidiaries. He also helped guide CPA Global through a successful private equity exit transaction and post-acquisition integration/restructuring project.

Before that, for eight years, Mr. Edley was Group Financial Director of Santova Limited, an international supply chain consulting and logistics business listed on the main board of the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and operating from 20 offices in eight countries. Having completed his chartered accountancy training with Deloitte in his native South Africa in 1992, Mr. Edley has held a number of senior financial positions in commerce, both in South Africa and the UK, including roles with Credit Suisse and Investec.

EV Cargo, which manages supply chains for the world’s leading brands, is targeting to grow from its current base of US$1.4 billion and surpass US$3.0 billion of revenue by 2025 through organic growth and M&A. With an active pipeline of acquisition candidates and well-developed M&A capabilities, EV Cargo plans to build on its strong existing geographic footprint in Asia and Europe, as well as expand into the US. With ongoing opportunities and challenges across global supply chains, EV Cargo continues to invest in building a global team positioned for growth and resilience.
