Faivre heads TollÆs German operation
Toll Global Forwarding has appointed C'dric Faivre as managing director for Germany, replacing Kay Uwe Gretsch who left the company recently due to personal reasons.
Faivre, 38, started his career working in Citroen's supply chain management in France, going on to hold a variety of senior posts in major logistics companies including Gefco and Giraud (now Geodis), where he headed sales in central and eastern Europe, and was ultimately managing director of its German operation. He will be based in Toll's German headquarters in Dusseldorf.
Toll said Faivre will head the company's planned expansion in Germany over the coming months based on the existing offices in Hamburg, Hannover, Dusseldorf, Munich, Frankfurt and Stuttgart. Staff levels in Germany are expected to rise to more than 100 employees within the next year.
