The Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport in the UK has elected Paul Sainthouse, managing director, Dawsongroup bus and coach, as its president for 2019, the centenary year for CILT.
“Our sectors face numerous challenges as well as opportunities in this very rapidly evolving world,” says Sainthouse, “and I hope that CILT(UK), in its centenary year, will continue to be recognised as an increasingly relevant organisation with an important part to play in upholding professionalism, delivering thought leadership and supporting its individual members personal development.”
Sainthouse has spent more than 30 years with Dawsongroup, joining as a management trainee in 1987, and since 2002 in his current role as managing director of the group’s bus and coach business.
Kevin Richardson, chief executive, CILT(UK), adds: “At CILT, we recognise the need to raise standards and attract and develop the talent that will enable us to support the sectors that we represent. Paul’s parliamentary connections and active involvement in the profession make him the right man to represent the Institute during our centenary year and positively promote CILT(UK) and the critical role of our sectors during what will be a challenging year for us all.”
