The venture’s Board of Directors has announced the appointment of Scott McKay to the new role of chief executive officer (CEO) assuming responsibilities on 30 October 2015. After an extensive selection process, McKay has now been tasked with the role of managing strategy and further grow the organisation.
“We have seen tremendous growth especially in recent times with new contract wins resulting in a doubling in business size,” said Malcolm May, Chairman of the Bowmans Intermodal Board. “The time is right for us to now take the decision of appointing a CEO to manage the future direction of the company and Scott is the perfect choice for this role having worked with us as a strategic consultant for the past two years assisting with supply chain operations, business development and customer engagement.”
