A.D.D. Express has announced the appointment of Bryan Mottershead to the role of business development manager.
The role was one of 10 new jobs created at the logistics company’s new 120,000 sq. ft Rochdale site, which is located close to the M62 and has recently undergone a £1.4m refurbishment.
Mottershead had previously served in the British Army before starting his logistics career as a driver with Todmorden-based James Shepherd Transport. In this new role, he will help the site reach its goal of operating at full capacity by transporting 4,000 pallets per night.
Mottershead said: “My role is to develop new business, working alongside the directors and management team to lift the customer base to the next level and increase the freight moving through our new site in Rochdale.
“I’ve held nearly every role in the industry, from driver to director, operations to sales and business development, and my operational background is of real benefit when talking to prospective customers.”
He added: “I have been kicking down doors for a long time, so I’m quite well known in the industry and I enjoy the different challenges that each day brings, as well as that sense of achievement when it goes well.”
The group is currently a shareholder and founder member of the Pall-Ex network which operates independently, but works together to deliver freight cost-effectively throughout the UK and Europe.
Dave Fairbrother, MD at A.D.D. Express, said: “With over 35 years’ experience in logistics, Bryan is the perfect fit for A.D.D. Express and it is great to have him on board. As a veteran of the industry, Bryan has held a wide variety of roles and gained in-depth operational knowledge of pallet networks.
“That experience is valuable for building relationships with customers, understanding their needs and how we can exceed those needs from an operational perspective. A.D.D. Express Ltd is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year and with Bryan joining the team we are confident that we will see significant growth during this milestone.”
