Logistics specialist PML has appointed its youngest director in the company’s 17-year history with the promotion of Ryan Parr to operations director.

The 25-year-old joined the business at 18 and for the last seven years he has worked across various parts of the company to develop an understanding of the global logistics sector.

In his new position, Parr will have direct responsibility for the day-to-day running of PML’s operations, exports, warehouse, transport and sea freight.

Additionally, PML has bucked the national trend for downsizing with the recruitment of three new import clerks.

Nick Finbow, PML sales director, said: “Ryan’s promotion to operations director is indicative of PML’s policy of nurturing and recognising in-house talent and wherever possible, promoting from within the organisation.”

In July, PML announced it had won a major contract with IPL, Asda’s produce-buying arm.
