Xpediator has announced the appointment of Jonathan Wright to the Group's operational board as Chief Operating Officer UK Logistics
Jonathan has extensive experience of working across the transport and logistics sector. He began in the industry as a graduate management trainee for Securicor Omega Logistics and went on to join Taygroup Ltd in 2002, where he rose to become Managing Director leading an MBO followed by a sale to Bibby Distribution in 2010, at which point Taygroup Ltd was a Top 100 UK transport company generating annual revenues of £23 million.
Subsequently, Jonathan has held a number of consultancy roles across the industry as well as investing in and driving the successful turnaround of CW Logistics Limited. In 2014, Jonathan invested in a start-up business within the Xpediator group, Delamode Distribution UK Ltd, for which he has been part-time Commercial Director overseeing significant growth in a short period.
Chief Executive of Xpediator, Stephen Blyth said:

Commenting on his appointment, Jonathan Wright said:
"Xpediator has doubled in size over the last two years and has clearly set out its stall to continue on a similar trajectory. I am therefore looking forward to working with the teams as the Group develops into one of Europe's leading industry players."
