Transland Group has appointed a new commercial director.
Gary Owen moves from Palletways’ UK network, where he spent four years as European Product Manager before his promotion to Head of Commercial, to Transland Group. As part of his new role he will head up Transland’s commercial team in the UK to focus on international business development.
Kieran Conlon, managing director of Transland Group, said: “We are delighted to have Gary on board. His experience with Palletways means that he is already familiar with how we operate so he can hit the ground running. I believe he’ll be a massive addition to the company.”
Gary added: “Transland has been one of Palletways’ strongest members for the past 15 years. I’m looking forward to taking the business to the next level in terms of new global opportunities.”
Transland Group is one of Ireland and the UK’s most reputable and innovative transport and logistics companies, with offices in Dublin and Fradley, where Gary is based. It has operated as Palletways’ Southern Ireland member since 2008 and since Brexit, the company has emerged as a leading Customs Clearance expert in the movement of goods between the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe.
