CEVA Logistics has picked Eddie Aston for the role of managing director, UK, Ireland and Nordics (UKIN), taking over from Michael O’Donoghue.

Aston joins from commercial van hire and leasing organization, Northgate, where he was UK managing director.

He brings extensive, international executive level experience in supply chain management, logistics and business-to-business service companies where he earned a reputation for delivering durable top and bottom line improvements across a number of vertical markets.

Commenting on his new role, Aston says, “Driving growth further is my key priority, and having been away from logistics for a few years I have watched the progress that CEVA has already made and it was top of the list of places I wanted to work.

“We now need to build on this tremendous success and press on with next phase of the UKIN cluster’s growth.”

CEVA Logistics chief executive officer, Xavier Urbain says, “We warmly welcome such an experienced professional as Eddie to our management team. His commercial business acumen and proven track record make him the ideal individual to lead the UKIN into the next phase of their growth plans. I also want to thank Michael for the excellent results he has delivered in UKIN.”

Aston will be based in the UKIN cluster’s head office in Ashby-de-la-Zouch, Leicestershire and he succeeds O’Donoghue who has been promoted to head of CEVA’s North America cluster.
