FTS Group has strengthened its senior management team with two senior appointments.
The group’s former commercial manager Peter Samuel has been promoted to the new role of group MD while former general manager Andrew Bull takes on the role of group operations director.
The company said the appointments follow a period of “unprecedented” acquisitive and organic growth.
The FTS Group currently operates four divisions consisting of Forward Trucking Services (FTS), which specialises in linehaul and contract haulage, FTS Logistics, which offers palletised freight, Stand & Deliver Transport, which FTS Group acquired in September 2018, and FTS Events. The group also partners with Palletways, Palletforce and Pallex.
FTS director Stephen Mackay said: “We are extremely proud to be cementing the team for this new phase of our development. Pete and Andrew bring both huge experience and industry knowledge, and together they will drive our growth and reinforce our status as one of Hertfordshire’s premier logistics companies.”
“Both are well-respected and well-known within our industry, their track records speaking for themselves. They will continue to build relationships and develop added value offerings that differentiate us in the logistics industry.”
Peter Samuel added: “I’ve been given a mandate to lead The FTS Group into the next phase of the company’s development.
“I feel honoured to have been asked to lead the already experienced team as we move forwards. It’s a great opportunity and I look forward to getting my teeth into it straight away.
“Supporting and developing our group companies has top priority as we push the envelope on our haulage, storage and added value offerings.”
Andrew Bull said: “I am pleased to be part of the team leading The FTS Group working alongside such great people.”
“The FTS Group is already a force to be reckoned with in our industry, we will be looking to build on our already unrivalled service levels”
