Marcus Campbell joins Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) as its new chief technology officer (CTO) during a successful roll out of its new Hermes 5 (H5) system upgrade for a number of customers worldwide.
Campbell brings over two decades of technology experience to the management role and has worked globally with leading companies including Sony, Oracle, Deloitte, and Accenture, and has significant industry experience within telecoms, retail, fintech, insurance, and shipping industries.
He will be part of HLT’s new implementations and upgrade drive as HLT expands its software engineering internationally to support ongoing growth.
“I am excited to join the Hermes technology team. I will make it our mission to accelerate our digital transformation and use technology innovation to deliver the next generation of cargo systems for our customers,” said Marcus Campbell, CTO, HLT.
Marcus joins as HLT successfully completes back-to-back Hermes 5 (H5) virtual systems upgrades for customers including various locations for Menzies, dnata in Amsterdam, and WFS in Frankfurt (FCS).
H5 rollouts are a first step for users to adopt HLT’s New Generation (NG) ecosystem (Hermes NG).
Hermes NG includes Hermes Cloud Cargo Management System and Hub Management System, Hermes NG BI and Datalakes, Hermes Self-Serve Apps, and Hermes Landside Management.
Hermes NG data can be used with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms to help decision making and optimise business and handling processes.
“HLT’s growth and the ability to have a global workforce lead’s HLT to recruit new talent in the UK, India, and the Middle East. Being location agnostic allows us to pick the right resources regardless of where they are,” said Yuval Baruch, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), HLT.
In a career spanning over two decades in technology, Marcus has implemented both business and customer-facing digital platforms, notably as head of software improvement programmes at London Underground, where he oversaw improvements to train telemetry software, leading the technical modernisation of station information systems.
