National IDW carrier Tuffnells has announced a new Board of Directors to lead the company into its next phase, after a successful 12 months in which it oversaw a successful turnaround, following a loss-making period under prior ownership.
Chris Tresadern previously held the roles of Regional Director from 2002 – 2008 and Sales Director from 2008 – 2017, before leaving to pursue a role in consultancy. He returned to Tuffnells in 2020 as Commercial Director, playing an instrumental role in the company’s successful turnaround over the last year. Having now been promoted to the role of CEO, Chris will lead the company’s next phase, to build an industry-leading customer-centric service, consolidating Tuffnells’ position as the market leader in IDW freight.
In her role as Head of HR, Sue Bancroft has already made a significant impact since joining Tuffnells, having introduced new training, recruitment and engagement initiatives. Sue is now promoted to the Board as HR Director.
Ian Brewer was appointed to the Board of Directors as Finance Director in 2020, having previously worked for the IDW carrier after choosing to delay retirement. Upon his return, Ian has played a key role in the company’s turnaround.
Shellea Crosby joins the Board as Commercial Director, having taken on the roles of Regional Sales Manager and Regional Sales Director for the North since she started in the business in 2018. Shellea will now oversee the next phase in the company’s commercial direction.
The latest addition to the Board is Gary Milne, who has joined as Operations Director. Having previously worked with Tuffnells, Gary re-joins with over 30 years’ industry experience and extensive knowledge of the company – which will be valuable in ensuring the business offers the best service for Tuffnells’ customers.
“I can’t think of a better team to build on our achievements over the last year and take us forward into our next phase, which is to consolidate our position as the number one IDW carrier in the UK. Together, we will deliver a strong and healthy future for Tuffnells, offering the best service for our customers and ensuring Tuffnells is a great place to work,” commented on the new-look Board, newly-appointed CEO of Tuffnells, Chris Tresadern.
