As part of its global growth strategy SBS Worldwide has promoted their USA CEO Lars Kloch to CEO - Freight Division, expanding his existing US role to take responsibility of their global freight operations.
Kloch takes up the role with immediate effect and will become responsible for developing SBS Worldwide's global freight product offering, both nationally and internationally.
SBS Worldwide Group Chairman, Steve Walker, said; "We are delighted to announce Lars as CEO - Freight Division. His experience on a global level places him perfectly to further grow SBS Worldwide in an ever competitive market place."
Lars Kloch added: "This is a wonderful opportunity to further grow SBS Worldwide across its businesses operations. I know we have great teams working for us globally and I'm looking forward to meeting everybody and excited at the prospects of what we can achieve together."
Lars started his career at Dan Transport in Denmark (now DSV) and went on to work at Exel Global Logistics before moving to the US in 2004 where he held various senior sales, operations and supply chain solutions positions, including managing the global account manager team at Geodis Wilson.
From there Lars joined SBS Worldwide in January 2010 as Managing Director and in October 2012 became US CEO.
