Pall-Ex has appointed former Palletline general manager Sue Hodgson as director of network services and to its board.

The appointment follows the arrival of former Palletline MD Kevin Buchanan at Pall-Ex, who took up his role as group MD in November.

Hodgson joins from banking software provider Fidelity Information Services, where she was national sales manager. She left Palletline in 2013 and was replaced by Steve Butler.

In her new role, Hodgson (pictured right) will take responsibility for the operational management of Pall-Ex’s UK network, liaising with its membership.

Buchanan said: “Sue has established herself as a very talented leader in the logistics industry, and it is fitting that she is able to bring her considerable skills to Pall-Ex to ensure our continued growth and focus on quality network services.

“She has proven experience in many aspects of the management of logistics networks, from implementing new systems across the board, to managing the collection and analysis of data.”

Also joining the pallet network is Michael Richardson, who has been appointed as security manager.
