Tadeau Pimenta to be CEVA MD Australia & NZ

Swiss CEVA Logistics has appointed Tadeau Pimenta to be its MD of the Australia & New Zealand cluster. Pimenta is head of Logistics South America for CEVA Logistics at present, but will take up the new positions in January 2019. He will report directly to the CEO, Xavier Urbain.

Pimenta takes over the role from Carlos Velez Rodriguez who has decided to pursue other career opportunities but who will work with Pimenta to ensure a smooth handover.

Pimenta has been at CEVA for 17 years. The company describes him as “a results driven, performance-focused team leader with a wealth of experience across both Freight Management and Contract Logistics.” Pertinent to his new role at CEVA, Pimenta has lived in Australia and Asia and has a good knowledge of how the industry operated in those regions.

Speaking about Pimenta’s promotion to his new role Xavier Urbain says: “Milton is a very astute operator with an energetic, commercial mind. He is a true team motivator who is ideally placed to lead the Australia & New Zealand cluster in the next step of its development. I also want to thank Carlos for his valuable contribution in the turnaround of the business there and for developing one of the most impressive Contract Logistics campuses we have in the CEVA world”
