UK: The Cold Chain Federation (CCF) has appointed Phil Pluck as its new chief executive to replace Shane Brennan.
It was announced in July that Brennan was to step down after five years in the role.
Phil Pluck brings to the Cold Chain Federation a wealth of experience in leadership roles at professional membership bodies, including the Freelancer and Contractor Services Association, the Glass and Glazing Federation, and the Royal Town Planning Institute. He has also worked with and advised on operational and commercial strategy for a number of other membership bodies as well as holding commercial directorships in the charity, private and government sectors.
To support a smooth transition, Shane Brennan will remain with the federation for a short handover period before he takes up his new role at the Global Cold Chain Alliance at the end of the year.
