The board of directors of CEVA Logistics (formerly TNT Logistics, Jacksonville, Fla.) has announced the appointment of John Pattullo as chief executive officer, effective once his transition from DHL Exel has been completed. This is expected to be in the second half of 2007. Pattullo is currently the COO of the EMEA division of DHL Exel Supply Chain.
The board of directors also announced that Dave Kulik, current CEO, will continue in his role until the appointment of Pattullo becomes effective and will subsequently assume the position of vice chairman of the board of directors of CEVA.
Gareth Turner, a partner of Apollo Management based in London and a CEVA Board Member said, “We are delighted that John will be joining CEVA and also particularly pleased that we were able to retain Dave's close involvement in the business during the transition period and afterward.” Source: Press release, CEVA Logistics.
