SBS Strengthens Management Team

Monday, July 20, 2009

SBS Worldwide Group has appointed Geoff Gillo as a non-executive director and Doug Overett as its first UK Country Manager. Chairman Steve Walker said the company, headquartered in Dartford, UK, is strengthening its management team as part of its strategic global development plan.

Launched in 1983 and with offices in the UK and North America, SBS is now targeting new areas for growth, including Asia.

“Geoff will be working with us to develop the strategic expansion of the group and his appointment will also assist with the introduction of a more structured management and reporting of the group’s activities,” said Walker. “We need to ensure we have a streamlined process for handling the growth we are planning over the next few years.”

Geoff Gillo, a chartered accountant, has many years of experience in logistics including that as European Finance & Commercial Director of Tibbett & Britten Group until its acquisition by Exel (now DHL) in 2004. He is an equity director of Keswick Enterprises Ltd – a privately owned company focusing on logistics and supply chain activities.

Doug Overett will report directly to the Group Chairman and he will have overall responsibility for running the UK business. He has over 30 years industry experience, having worked in the UK and US in both sales and operational roles with leading forwarders, including MSAS/Exel (now DHL) and Hellman Worldwide. More recently Doug has worked with Wincanton in the container haulage sector and supported a number of projects for the Uniserve Group.
