Senior Management Appointments!
03 April, 2020 - A message from our shareholder, Nick Kerr...
"Dear Colleagues, Customers and Partners,
During this unprecedented coronavirus emergency, I would like to bring you positive news about some senior management appointments here at Gosselin.
This Spring we celebrate three years since the historical merger of DT Moving, Packimpex Moving and Gosselin. During this time we have undergone many successful changes, including a re-branding to Gosselin, and in the coming months this will accelerate as we phase in the integration of a common move management and financial IT platform.
We will draw closer, building on our early achievements to strengthen the group, with more shared resources to serve our clients and a strong leadership team to focus on the eventual business upswing once the current global pandemic is over.
We are therefore delighted to announce the following appointments with effect from 1st April 2020:
Iain Adams: Iain is a highly regarded international moving specialist within the UK moving industry, and latterly accumulated valuable hands-on experience based in Asia. Most recently, he has been on assignment for Gosselin in Belgium and the Netherlands. I am very pleased, therefore, to announce that we have appointed Iain to the role of Regional Managing Director with responsibility for UK operations. Iain will participate on the Gosselin board of management, and he will lead the UK management team supported by Tony Hutchison, UK operations director, and Tim Daniells, UK sales and client account director.
Marcel Jörg: Marcel, currently chief commercial officer, will assume the role of CEO of Gosselin’s moving division. He will lead the now fully integrated Gosselin moving division network which includes the former brands of DT Moving and Packimpex Moving. Marcel is a multilingual economist with an Executive MBA with over 19 years in the moving industry - he is extremely excited about leading Gosselin into the future.
Nick Kerr: After more than 45 years heading up DT Moving, and nearly three years in the role of CEO of Gosselin's moving division, I have decided to reduce my day to day management duties from April 2020. I will, however, remain a core part of Gosselin, active on the group’s board of management and continuing as a shareholder, assuming group responsibilities and supporting Marcel and his team to facilitate a smooth transition.
I believe that with these changes, planned well before the current coronavirus pandemic, we strengthen an already formidable team to oversee the next phase of the company’s development. On behalf of Marc Smet and myself, please join me in congratulating Marcel and Iain on their new positions.
My best wishes,
Gosselin is a long established and award-winning international moving company. We are renowned for service excellence, and have won fourteen global relocation awards since 2010. We have 56 offices across 34 countries in Europe and Central Asia.
