After 13 years as CEO and 22 years at Agility, Essa Al-Saleh has announced that he will be stepping down from position of CEO of Global Integrated Logistics.
“Essa’s legacy is spearheading 40+ acquisitions and integrating these businesses into a single network of more than 18,000 employees, operating in 100+ countries, and contributing near $4 billion in revenue. Essa is a true leader: he built a strong company culture while driving consistent improvement in growth and profitability. He leaves Agility GIL in a position of strength,” said Tarek Sultan, Agility vice-chairman and CEO.
Al-Saleh will be succeeded by industry veteran Chris Price, who currently heads Agility’s nearly $1.5 billion Asia Pacific logistics business and has been with the company for thirty-six years. He will become GIL CEO on May 1.
