Former transport principal Mark Duggan has become MD to take TPN into its next stage of growth.
TPN – The Pallet Network â€“ has moved the principal of one of its longest standing Member companies into the position of managing director as part of a strategic succession plan for the business.
Former MD Adam Leonard has progressed to CEO of the company. He says: â€œMark came on board in 2014 as commercial director with a view to succeeding me. I will remain sufficiently involved to offer continuity but there could not be a better candidate than Mark to move TPN through its next stage of growth.â€
Duggan has extensive experience in transport having been MD of highly successful haulier Eezehaul for 16 years.Â He also has extensive experience from outside the sector.
â€œI am very pleased to be stepping up to the helm of a network I joined early in its life, and believe in strongly,â€ says Duggan. â€œAdam has created a network which delivers excellence and has long-term, stable and successful relationships with its Members. The pallet network market has now matured and my job is to facilitate the next wave of growth and development.â€
Duggan says that he is actively recruiting well-established and successful regional transport firms to complement TPNâ€™s 100+ strong Membership. â€œAs commercial director I brought in six excellent haulage firms who had never been in a network before and I intend to continue attracting and keeping the very best Members so our offering to the marketplace remains sustainable and top quality.â€
