Mark Newman new CEO Wim Bosman Group

The 's-Heerenberg based Wim Bosman Group has appointed Mr. Mark Newman as CEO of the Wim Bosman Group as of April 2011. Mark will succeed Mr. Eng. W.P. Bosman, who will join the Supervisory board of the Wim Bosman Group. The Wim Bosman Group recently has been acquired by the New-Zealand based logistic service provider Mainfreight.

As part of the ownership changes, Mark Newman will become CEO of Wim Bosman Group. Mark Newman has been with Mainfreight for over 20 years, lately with the responsibilities of managing and leading the New-Zealand domestic transport operations. Mr. Bosman will be helping Mark Newman transition into this role.

The acquisition is a strong strategic fit for both Mainfreight and Wim Bosman, and will provide an excellent platform for both companies to expand the business and service offering globally. Until now, Mainfreight was not represented in Europe. This development will provide increasing services and opportunities to existing and future customers.

The activities will continue under the current company name Wim Bosman and will not have any consequences for the employees. Mainfreight is a stock exchange registered business. The structure and culture of the Wim Bosman Group is very similar to that of Mainfreight.

With Mark Newman, the Wim Bosman Group wants to improve the 3PL+ position which it has been developing in the last decade. With a global logistics network, the Wim Bosman Group is able to offer fully supply chain logistics.
