CP Transport Strengthens Senior Leadership Team

UK container specialist welcomes a hat trick of new directors to its board.

With a reputation for constantly expanding and evolving, leading container delivery company CP Transport welcomes three new directors to its board.

Recognising the talent already in the company, managing director Adam Searle has appointed two existing employees to the board and brought in additional expertise to take care of the commercial side of the business.

Firstly, Fraser Warren takes on the role of financial director. Fraser joined the Ipswich-based company over five years ago and was previously City-based, working across various economic sectors, including airline hospitality, commodity and diamond trading.

Filling the role of operations director is Mathew Gittins. Having joined the company in 2017 as operations manager, Mathew is fully conversant with the day-to-day operations at CP whilst also bringing experience acquired working with YCT and James Kemball to the role.

Jake Hollis joins the company as commercial director, following a ten-year career with Maze Logistics, which culminated in the role of commercial manager. Having joined CP back in the summer, Jake also spent four years working with DB Schenker.

Adam Searle, managing director of CP Transport, says: “The ability to work in partnership with our clients and develop person-to-person relationships at the top of is what sets CP apart.  Over the years, both Fraser and Mathew have proven these skills time and time again, making it an obvious decision to promote from within.

“And it is these attributes that I see in Jake. An in-depth understanding of commercial realities has never been more pertinent to a company’s ability to thrive. Jake’s knowledge of our sector and ‘can-do attitude’ makes him the right man for the job.

“In these challenging times, nothing can be taken for granted, and I’m pleased to say CP Transport is in a very healthy position. But the professionalism and experience of Fraser, Mathew and Jake will be pivotal in our endeavours to drive the business forward.”
