The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT), has appointed former vice president Steve Gooding as president of the organisation for 2021, with his role coming into effect at the start of the year.
In his new role Gooding will “build on the significant work of his predecessor”, Paul Sainthouse, who “helped steer the Institute through the coronavirus pandemic”, supported the work on merging CILT(UK) and CILT International and led the institute during its centenary year in 2019.
In addition, alongside the board of directors and vice-presidents, Gooding will promote CILT as the “essential home for those involved in the movement of goods and people, and their associated supply chains”.
Gooding said: “After several years serving as a vice president of CILT, I have come to know the Institute well and I am honoured to be made president. 2021 looks set to be a year when the skills of CILT members will be tested to the full as we start to emerge from the Covid-19 crisis, and we exit the EU.
“I am keen to see CILT continue to support its members by promoting best practice, providing training and awarding qualifications to deliver on the Institute’s core mission to deliver professionalism in motion.”
