Mark has been involved in the Logistics industry since he started his career, aged 16, at Pandair Freight Ltd. During those early days he worked in nearly every aspect of freight forwarding and international trade. Moving from operations to the commercial side of the business, he worked his way up from field sales to the management team, with AEI Pandair, Air Haniel, DFDS Transport and Danzas.
In 2000 and 2001 he was part of the highly successful management team that completed the UK integration of three companies, Danzas, AEI & Scottish Express, to form Danzas AEI Intercontinental, an entity that went on to become DHL Global Forwarding. He took the position of UK Airfreight Director for the newly formed company, and oversaw a period of intensive growth of the Airfreight product. In 2010 he was recruited by the CEO of Toll Global Forwarding to take on the position of Head of Airfreight for the EMEA region , based in Zurich. After successfully building a country-based Airfreight team across the region, he was promoted to the position of Head of Europe where he took over the responsibility of managing the 6 existing network countries,France , Germany , Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark & Finland.
In 2014 he identified gaps in the network & opened greenfield operations in Italy & a year later in Norway.
His most recent position saw him return to his Airfreight roots taking over the position of Global Head of Airfreight, a role which required extensive travel to all parts of the Toll network & also the promotion of the product throughout the agent network worldwide.
He was a member of the Executive Leadership Team reporting directly to the CEO.
A family man, Mark is passionate about his beloved Manchester City & also rides his Harley Davidson at every opportunity.
