As part of its global strategic expansion plan B&H Worldwide has made two key appointments in the Oceania region after enticing back two former employees.
Colin Kaltner becomes head of operations and Sita Tauakipulu takes on the role of commercial accounts manager based in Auckland, New Zealand.
B&H Worldwide said the moves are designed to further boost the leadership of its operational capabilities, and the new management appointments will “build the company’s expertise and provide renewed focus to its services in the region”.
Both previously worked for B&H and are now returning to the company in these senior positions. Kaltner started his career at B&H in London in 2000 before leaving in 2016 he to take up a position at Jetstar Airways as freight manager.
Tauakipulu previously worked in the operations team in New Zealand and in her new position she takes on strategic account management across the countr.
B&H’s teams in Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland will now report to Kaltner and both appointments are effective immediately.
B&H Worldwide chief executive officer, Stuart Allen said: “Colin’s aerospace logistics experience over the last 15 years coupled with his in-depth commercial knowledge will be a wonderful asset to the company and provides a great example of the career opportunities that exist at B&H.
“It truly demonstrates the business’ commitment to developing our people and our investment in the Oceania region.”
