Demand creates new logistics tech role

Contract logistics provider, GXO, has announced a newly created Chief Technology Officer (CTO) position to capitalise on the increasing global demand for advanced warehouse solutions.

The American company has appointed Nizar Trigui who will have responsibility for global technology function, working with the company’s innovation leaders to make new technology an integral part of GXO’s future growth. He will report to Chief Executive Officer, Malcolm Wilson.

“This new global technology role realises our commitment to provide our customers the cutting-edge competitive advantage they need to exceed their customers’ expectations and grow market share,” Wilson said. “Nizar is more than a technology expert — he’s a true leader with a track record of building tech-powered organisations. He will immediately add value by bringing his extensive technology and leadership experience to our highly automated operations and level-up our future technology deployment plans for blue-chip customers around the world.”

Most recently, Trigui served as Chief Executive Officer of Bridgestone Mobility Solutions and was responsible for growing the group solution business at nearly 10 per cent annually.  Previously, he served as Chief Technology Officer for Dura Automotive Systems where he led corporate product strategy, the technology portfolio and global product development.
