Eezehaul appoints seasoned MD for strongest management team yet
Eezehaul Logistics has strengthened its management team by appointing ex-Prestons of Potto MD Allen Rees as MD, to work alongside current Directors, Jane Jones and Craig Wilson. Allen Rees was formerly a general manager at Fagan and Whalley, and then MD at Prestons of Potto. His most recent appointment was as Commercial Director at TPN.
Rees says: “I enjoyed my time working with TPN’s 120 partners, but there is a definite satisfaction in going back to my roots running a transport operation. I couldn’t resist the opportunity to work with such a vibrant and strategically well-placed business.” Jones will continue her role of Financial Director, which she has held for several years.
As MD, she led the team through the twin challenges of Brexit and COVID. She will now assume a part-time position, focusing on finance, in order to fulfil family and other personal commitments. Wilson has been with the business for over 13 years, working his way up from Evening Supervisor to Operations Director. He will now use his operational exertise to add value to Eezehaul’s customer experience, as he evolves into the role of Commercial Director over the coming months.

TPN MD Mark Kendall says: “It’s essential for us to recognise the whole-person needs of every team member, which includes our most experienced and diligent directors. Jane and Craig have made a huge contribution to Eezehaul’s current success and future strategy, and we’re very lucky to be retaining their skills within the business.” “That said, it was providential that Allen wanted to take on the role, given his undoubted pedigree in road transport.
We’re sure that together Allen, Jane and Craig will form a formidable senior management team.”
