Ceva Logistics has appointed Nadia Ribeiro to the position of Executive Vice President and head of the South America cluster as of 1 February.
Ribeiro succeeds Richard Vieites, who has moved to the company’s North American operations to become Executive Vice President of Contract Logistics.
Ribeiro has worked for Ceva for 13 years and comes to the new role after the last three years as Managing Director Brazil at Kuehne and Nagel.
According to Ceva, Ribeiro has extensive knowledge of the international freight and logistics market and global experience of many vertical markets in both commercial and operational roles.
“I am delighted to return to Ceva,” said Ribeiro.
“A major factor in my decision was the strength and solidity of its new operating model, the experienced management team driving it forward and the way those two things are differentiating the company in the industry.
“The current economic climate means the South American market is in a constant state of transition, but I welcome the opportunities this creates for the team I will lead – providing us with opportunities to grow the business here.”
“I am pleased to welcome Nadia back to the senior management team and am confident she will help us to develop the South America cluster and support our goal of creating strong added value services for our customers,” said Ceva Logistics CEO, Xavier Urbain.
