Former Bibby Distribution head of business development, David Hutchings, has been appointed to the newly created role of head of business development at Gloucestershire-based CM Downton. Downton, which won the Motor Transport Haulier of the Year Award in June and has doubled its turnover in the last three years, says Hutchings will be key to achieving its targets for further growth. Prior to joining Bibby, Hutchings held senior business development roles at Wincanton and Christian Salvesen.
Paul Kavanagh has been named as MD at R Swain & Sons, replacing Bob Swain who stepped down last month.
Bibby Distribution is creating 50 new jobs after it doubled the capacity of its Max Park site in Corby by snapping up a neighbouring 212,500ft² warehouse.
