Third party logistics services provider Agility has appointed Chris Price to chief executive officer of its Asia Pacific operations.
The company also named Mike Bible CEO of its Europe operations, following the decision by Beat Simon to depart the company.
As CEO of Asia Pacific, Price will oversee more than 160 offices in 23 countries and more than 7,000 employees. Before his appointment, he was CEO of Agility in North Europe since 2007.
“Agility has invested heavily in Asia in the last decade,” said Essa Al-Saleh, president and CEO of Agility Global Integrated Logistics, in a statement. “The company is a top five logistics provider across the region, with a strong base in China that serves the domestic and international market, extensive operations in India, and market-leading presence in South East Asian countries like Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia.”
In Europe, Bible will manage more than 140 offices in over 29 countries, and more than 3,000 employees. Before his appointment, he was CEO of Agility Americas for five years, and before that, chief financial officer of Agility Americas.
Both appointments take effect Jan. 1.
