New Operations Manager with military background taken on
A former member of the Armed Forces with decades of logistics experience has been taken on by NX Group to oversee the company’s supply chain.
After providing military logistics in locations around the world, including the Arctic Circle and the Baltics, Karl Passey returned to the UK after living in Europe for 16 years to work in commercial logistics and has now opted to join the privately owned firm as its Operation Manager because of its potential to be a major name in the industry.
Karl, 50, said; “I’ve worked in some pretty extreme locations with the Forces, but on returning to civvy street I quickly realised that the commercial logistics sector had its own unique challenges, which I’ve had to adapt to.
“After more than 30 years working in warehousing, transport, supply chain and logistics, I recognised that The NX Group is an ambitious business with an upward trajectory. For me especially, the fact that the firm offers whole supply chain solutions, from start to end, gives it a personal touch which makes it very appealing.”
Neil Powell, Managing Director of The NX Group, said; “Karl brings with him a wealth of working knowledge from within the industry, and his military background provides him with further experience and disciplines that will also prove invaluable in this vital role, which will see him overseeing our complex and varied supply chain.”
