Building on a stable and robust network to win business in growing market
The Fortec Distribution Network is gearing up for growth in the pallet market with the appointment of a new team to drive the business forward. Fortec’s Business Unit Director, Craig Johnson, brings with him a reputation for creating and promoting a culture of continuous improvement. A key focus will be on improving efficiency, productivity, Health & Safety and operational excellence across the network. He will also have responsibility for taking the business to the next level whilst maintaining Fortec’s ethos of delivering a high-quality service to customers as its top priority.
Joining him in that task is newly appointed General Manager, Operations, Graeme Morris, Steve Wyton General Manager, Commercial and Stuart White, UK and International Hub Manager at Watford Gap, Fortec’s operational heart.
Together they have decades of experience in distribution which will enable them to build on Fortec’s stable and robust network to win more business in the growing market.
Craig joined Fortec with previous experience at Kuehne + Nagel, Eddie Stobart, FedEx and Culina.
Graeme, who started his career at Eddie Stobart, rose to become a Regional Transport Manager for Kuehne + Nagel, during which time he successfully implemented a brand new hub in the South for the company, before joining Fortec.
Steve has been with Fortec for almost eight years in his role as Regional Commercial Manager for the Midlands. In this new expanded role, Steve will now be responsible for the commercial activity for both Fortec and its members throughout the UK and Ireland.
Stuart has an in-depth experience of the sector, having started his career as a picker before swiftly moving up the managerial ladder to become a Warehouse Manager responsible for more than 150 people at a 24-hour-a-day operational site for Kuehne + Nagel.
The four appointments were made following the departures of General Manager, Operations Chris Dennigan and Network Director Dave Spong who left the business last year.
