The Fortec Distribution Network has appointed Chris Dennigan as its general manager of operations.
Dennigan, who has a career in logistics spanning some 15 years, first joined the Northamptonshire-based company in 2012 and since that time has played an instrumental role in delivering a number of new initiatives to ensure the company continues to retain its competitive edge as well as attract new members.
Previously holding the role of business improvement and performance manager, Dennigan was responsible for rolling out the company’s new IT strategy.
In his new role, he will continue to continue to introduce further enhancements to the IT system whilst at the same time playing a pivotal role in providing operational support to the member network with the aim of continuing to improve overall customer experience.
Dennigan said: “This new role comes at a time when the pallet industry is enjoying a period of growth and will therefore bring about a number of fresh challenges.
“It will also provide me with an opportunity to work closely with the members to ensure all systems and innovations are running smoothly, expectations are managed so we can build on our achievements to date and continue to help our members to grow their businesses”.
Dave Spong, Fortec’s network director, added: “As part of our business plan one of our key aims is to work closely with member partners to continue improving their efficiency and profitability which in turn allows them to enjoy strategic growth within our network. Chris will be responsible for ensuring we have all the right systems, staff and operations in place which in turn will allow that growth and help move us ever closer to our ultimate goal”.
