CEVA Logistics has appointed Nadia Ribeiro as executive vice president and head of the South America cluster.
She previously worked for CEVA for 13 years but spent the last three years at Kuehne and Nagel as managing director in Brazil.
Ribeiro starts her role today and says: “I am delighted to return to CEVA. A major factor in my decision was the strength and solidity of its new operating model, the experienced management team driving it forward and the way those two things are differentiating the company in the industry.
“The current economic climate means the South American market is in a constant state of transition, but I welcome the opportunities this creates for the team I will lead – providing us with opportunities to grow the business here.”
She adds contract logistics provides opportunities for CEVA across the cluster particularly in the countries outside Brazil.
In Brazil, she explains her team will create additional opportunities in full supply chain management for its customers.
Ribeiro succeeds Richard Vieites who has moved to the company’s North American operations to become executive vice president of contract logistics.
