Pall-Ex has appointed Colin Hawkins as Owned Operations Director - HMP_6497

Pall-Ex has appointed former Shears Bros’ general manager Colin Hawkins (pictured) to the newly created role of owned operations director.

The promotion will see him overseeing all of the network’s operation depots including Cranleigh Distribution Services, Pall-Ex London, Cornwall-based Intercounty Distribution and Shears Bros (Transport) in Bournemouth, which it purchased in 2017.

Hawkins will also sit on the UK operating board.

He said: “Each area is a challenging one for pallet networks but having an owned presence in these key postcodes is enabling us to secure our position locally and will enable growth in the long-term.”
