Guillaume Sauzedde has been appointed as managing director (MD) of CEVA Logistics’ new and expanded cluster covering Germany and Eastern & Central Europe.
Currently MD of the Eastern & Central Europe cluster, he takes up his additional role for the expanded cluster on 30 November. He will continue to report directly to chief executive officer, Xavier Urbain.
As a result of the close synergies in the two clusters CEVA has decided to create a single cluster, under Sauzedde’s leadership, from what were previously two distinct entities.
The aim is to accelerate growth in Contract Logistics, Freight Management air, ocean and ground. The management team in Germany and Central & Eastern Europe will report to Sauzedde who now takes on the duties of Christian Wurst. Wurst leaves the company at the end of the month.
With more than 20 years’ experience in the logistics industry, Sauzedde joined CEVA in October from Kuehne Nagel in Poland where he was responsible for all business lines. He has strong market knowledge and experience of both the German and Eastern European markets and this will be a key driver for the future development of the extended cluster.
Urbain said: “I am delighted to announce this new role for Guillaume. I would also like to thank Christian Wurst for his work during his time with CEVA. He hands over a well-positioned organization ready for future growth.”
