XPO Logistics has appointed Nicholas Head (above) to lead the company’s environmental and sustainability organisation in the UK and Ireland.
Dr Head will report to Nigel Rouch, operational excellence director, and Dan Myers, MD for the region.
He has over a decade of experience working with organisations of all types to advance environmental goals and, prior to joining XPO, served in senior roles with Encore Environment and SusConnect, among others, and consulted on corporate strategies for environmental, energy and resource management.
In 2019, Dr Head co-founded the not-for-profit Transnational Transparent Procurement Foundation, to pioneer sustainable procurement technologies.
He holds a doctorate in sustainable waste and resource management (circular economy models and systems thinking) and a master’s degree in waste management from the University of Northampton, where he also served as an associate lecturer.
Mr Myers said: “Our environmental and sustainability function is vital to our business and all our stakeholders. This critical agenda will have a clear direction under Nick’s leadership, as we build on our strong track record with ongoing investments towards a more sustainable logistics model.
“It’s great to have such an A-player join our team,” he added.
