Kim Pedersen, 47, has been appointed Executive Vice President of Geodis Wilson, heading up the Freight Forwarding Division.

“In Kim Pedersen we have a person at the top of our freight forwarding activities who brings the capabilities, the experience and most importantly the right mindset to lead this important business unit of Geodis further into areas of strong and sustainable growth on a global scale”, says Marie Christine Lombard, CEO of Geodis.

Geodis Wilson today generates more than 37% of the group’s revenue and increased its turnover in 2012 to 2,64bn € (2011: 2,39bn €). The division employs 7,700 people worldwide, located in 240 offices spread over 50 countries on all continents.

“Our focus is on the international markets that drive our customers growth," comments Kim Pedersen. “The dynamics of a volatile global economy forces our clients to a high level of adaptability when it comes to their supply chains. Our constant drive towards innovation in freight forwarding is the key differentiator to master their challenge. It drives our clients’ and subsequently our success.”
