Temperature-controlled logistics specialist, Lineage Logistics, has appointed a Senior Vice President to oversee all of the company’s European operations.
Harld Peters has assumed the role and will report to Mike McClendon, Lineage’s President of International Operations and EVP of Network Optimization.
He brings extensive experience leading technology-driven transformation and accelerated growth, most recently serving as President of Northern Europe for global workforce solutions company, ManpowerGroup. He also spent more than two decades at UPS where he held key leadership positions across Europe and Asia, most recently as President of UPS China and previously as President for West Europe.
“We are thrilled to welcome Harld to the One Lineage Europe family, and I am confident he is the right leader for this critical position,” said McClendon.
“Harld has an impressive background in deploying intelligent growth strategies in Europe, which is particularly important for Lineage as we continue to expand regionally and with customers across our dynamic European facility footprint. I look forward to seeing the incredible impact he is going to make on our European operations and on the Company as a whole.”
Peters’ appointment is a part of Lineage’s larger structure enhancement strategy for Europe, focused on evolving the organisation to better meet the needs of Lineage’s regional customers.
Part of that strategy is engaging world class leaders who have the skills and passion to continue to grow Lineage’s European network as well as developing sophisticated functions to serve as the backbone to support that network.
“I’m excited to join the world’s leading cold storage logistics solutions provider, particularly at such a transformative time for the company and its European operations,” said Peters.
“I look forward to working with this talented team to build Lineage’s brand presence in the region and provide the industry’s best, most comprehensive customer experience.”
