Paul Adams has been named the new chief executive of the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) in the United Kingdom.

With more than 20 years of global experience in senior leadership roles, Paul joins CILT(UK) from the Institute of Directors (IoD) where he was national director/chief operating officer for two years.

“The profile and significance of logistics, transport and supply chain as a sector has been made ever more prominent since its important role in keeping the country moving during the pandemic and I look forward to building on this momentum in my role as CEO,” says Adams. 

“I am excited to have the opportunity to represent such a vital area of the UK economy and look forward to connecting with members and the profession during my tenure.”

CILT(UK) chair of the board Vikram Singla says: “His extensive experience in membership organisations, charities and education will help guide the institute through an important period of growth as we move into the next phase of our journey into becoming the institute of choice for all those working in the many facets of logistics, transport and the supply chain.”

Scott McKay, founder and chief executive of Flywheel Advisory, will replace John Warda as chair of the International Cargo Handling Co-ordination Association (ICHCA) Australia board.

McKay is the former chief executive officer of transshipping ports and grain handler T Ports and Bowmans Rail and has worked in Europe, Asia and Australia overseeing supply chain operations for global companies, in packaging, apparel, food and transport.

Warda tendered his resignation as chair at a recent ICHCA Australia executive committee board meeting, effective December 31. He will also step down as the deputy chair of the ICHCA International board.

Warda’s duties as Finance Director of ICHCA Australia will be taken over by company secretary Peter van Duyn.

Sallie Strang, also a long serving board member of ICHCA Australia and ICHCA International, has also resigned from both boards.

Warda has been a director of ICHCA since 2008 and chairman since 2014. He says the time is right to hand over the reins to the new leadership team to grow the ICHCA membership base and promote the role the ICHCA plays in the cargo handling community in Australia and globally.

The boards of both ICHCA Australia and ICHCA International thanked Warda and Strang their valuable contributions to ICHCA and wish them well in the future.
