PML appoints youngest board director & upweights imports division

PML continues to buck the national trend for downsizing and is upweighting its senior management team with the promotion of Ryan Parr to the position of Operations Director.

Parr joined the business in 2013 at the age of 18 and during his seven-year tenure he has worked across many areas of the company to gain a strong understanding of the global logistics sector. At 25, Parr will be the youngest Director in the company’s 17-year history with direct responsibility for the day to day running of PML’s operations, exports, warehouse, transport and Sea Freight.

In addition, the successful logistics solution provider for the perishable goods sector has recruited three new Import clerks to join its busy Imports department. The move to increase resource in this sector of the business is designed to ensure PML has sufficient time to train its lead Import operators to bring them completely up to speed with the new regulations associated with the impending Brexit deal, underpinning the company’s commitment to helping its clients achieve compliance via a best in class customer service.

Nick Finbow, Sales Director for PML comments, “Ryan’s promotion to Operations Director is indicative of PML’s policy of nurturing and recognising in-house talent and wherever possible, promoting from within the organisation to provide staff with a working environment that offers genuine career progression opportunities.

Obviously, our priority is to always find the best people for the job so this sometimes means that we need to recruit externally. PML is focused on maintaining a board of directors who have the ability to continue to drive the business forward, embracing emerging technologies and the latest innovations to uphold the company’s leading position in the global logistics sector.”
