Ceva Logistics has furthered the progress of its operating model by introducing ground as a fourth new business line. The ground division will run alongside the company’s existing air, ocean and contract logistics businesses and be headed up by Jérôme Lorrain as its Chief Operating Officer.
Ceva’s ground operations will remain strongly embedded as a part of the local cluster strategy, which was part of the new operating model introduced in 2014. Jérôme Lorrain’s first priority will be to optimize Ceva’s US Organization by further developing its regional footprint, and to align its global approach through stronger coordination and optimization of processes. “As a global provider, we want to offer the most professional end-to-end solutions to our customers. By adding this fourth business line we have an opportunity to even better leverage the existing network we have in some parts of the world and reinforce our air, ocean and contract logistics global product offering,” says Jérôme Lorrain.
French national Jérôme Lorrain has extensive knowledge of the supply chain, logistics and transport industries in almost every market sector. Most recently, prior to joining Ceva, he served as CEO of Wallenborn Transports in Luxembourg where he led a strategic transformation of the organization into a structured group of companies with a fully international dimension.
Jérôme Lorrain will relocate from Dubai, where he served as Executive Vice President Balkans, Africa, Middle East and Central Asia (BAMECA) to Ceva’s US corporate headquarters in Houston in the USA. He has also been appointed to the company’s Executive Board reporting to CEO, Xavier Urbain.
Jérôme Lorrain’s successor as Executive Vice President for the BAMECA cluster will be Fuat Adoran who is currently Managing Director of the company’s Turkey and Balkans sub-cluster.
