[ January 5, 2015   //   ]

David Wells will become the Freight Transport Association’s chief executive officer from 1 May, taking over from Theo de Pencier who is retiring after eight years. Mr Wells joined FTA in 2009 as finance and IT director. He has successfully implemented a number of important financial and operational programmes. FTA president Ian Veitch said he had emerged “as the outstanding candidate to become FTA’s CEO. He clearly demonstrated his knowledge and understanding of the freight industry and the logistics sector from both a policy and commercial aspect.”
