Industry specialist Terry Churchill joins Allseas as General Manager
30 July 2015
As part of another step forward in our ongoing development, we have recently appointed industry specialist Terry Churchill as our new General Manager, based in the UK.
Terry, 53, a highly respected logistics specialist, brings to Allseas 35 years’ experience in the international forwarding, freight and logistics industry.
He worked for DHL for 24 years from 1980 until 2004, latterly having responsibility for more than 100 emerging market countries across the global. He then ran his own successful logistics solutions company, based in Bahrain, for a decade before returning to the UK earlier this year.
“I am delighted to be joining Allseas Global Logistics; it’s a company that has been incredibly successful in a short space of time and has great foundations on which to build,” he said. “Fundamentally, Allseas has the right attitude, the right core skills and fantastic levels of expertise; it has a great culture and really good people, many of whom have come up through the ranks. And it has an excellent customer base. People love working for and with Allseas, which is known for its goodwill and expertise.
“My job will be to look at the day-to-day businesses within Allseas, to share ideas, to see where the synergies are and to ensure that our teams work together to create the best solutions for our customers. “However, while focusing on structure and communication, I am determined to retain the human approach for which Allseas if renowned. Yes, this is a serious industry – but you don’t have to become a robot and 100% ‘corporate’. You need rules but you also need flexibility and humour.”
In essence, Terry summed up his target at Allseas as being ‘more of the same’, retaining the unique Allseas culture. “We will bring further development to our overseas offices while continuing to drive forward each area of the business. Allseas has seen a meteoric rise – let’s keep it going and look at new ways forward too,” he said.
Terry will report directly to Darren Wright, Allseas Global Logistics’ founder and Managing Director.
