CEVA Logistics has appointed Milton Tadeau Pimenta as managing director for the Australia and New Zealand cluster, taking over from Carlos Velez Rodriguez.

Pimenta, who is head of contract logistics in South America, will take up his new role in January 2019 and report directly to CEVA CEO, Xavier Urbain.

He joined CEVA 17 years ago and has previously lived in both Australia and Asia, gaining extensive knowledge of the industry there.

Speaking about Pimenta’s new role, Urbain says: “Milton is a very astute operator with an energetic, commercial mind. He is a true team motivator who is ideally placed to lead the Australia and New Zealand cluster in the next step of its development.

“I also want to thank Carlos for his valuable contribution in the turnaround of the business there and for developing one of the most impressive contract logistics campuses we have in the CEVA world.”
