Leigh Pomlett

Ceva Group executive director Leigh Pomlett has become the new president of the FTA at the association’s National Council meeting in London last week.

Former president Ian Veitch handed over the role to Pomlett at the end of his three year term.

Pomlett has been executive director at Ceva Group since January 2015, and has previously held senior roles at companies including DHL Supply Chain and Exel.

He said: “I am both delighted and honoured to take over the presidency from Ian. I am really looking forward to getting started. This is an exciting and demanding time for our industry and for the FTA and its members.”

FTA chief executive David Wells said: “Ian has made a significant contribution to FTA for which I am deeply indebted to him.  My best wishes go to Leigh Pomlett, who I know has all the necessary skills to ensure FTA continues its excellent work on behalf of its members.”
