And changes to its senior management
One year after the launch of the tender offer on CEVA Logistics, the CMA CGM Group is strengthening the organization in order to deploy the second phase dedicated to the return to profitability of CEVA Logistics.

After an initial transitional phase of reorganization, which made it possible to deploy new processes and define a strategy for a return to profitability, CEVA Logistics is implementing its second phase of development.

This business plan is based on several strategic axes: development of new products, development of the network in Africa and South-East Asia, digitalization plan and investment in IT tools particularly in Freight Management.

In order to accompany this second phase of its development, CEVA Logistics is making changes to its senior management:
  • Mathieu Friedberg is appointed CEO. He was Senior Vice President Commercial and Agencies network of the CMA CGM Group. Previously CEO of Delmas and CMA CGM Logistics, the logistics entity of the CMA CGM Group before the acquisition of CEVA Logistics
  • Guillaume Col is appointed Chief Operating Officer. He was previously General Manager for France and North Africa at Kuehne Nagel
  • Michel Foulon is appointed Chief Information Officer. He previously held the same position at CMA CGM
  • Frédéric Obala takes on the newly created position of Director of Transformation and Digital. He has extensive experience in B2C and B2B functions in the retail, technology and media sectors
  • Gaultier de La Rochebrochard is appointed General Counsel. He held the same position in several multinational companies including GL Events and Norbert Dentressangle groups
  • Nicolas Sartini, current CEO, is leaving CEVA Logistics
