Crowley Maritime Corp. has promoted Danny Hall, formerly vice president of former subsidiary Jarvis Freight International, to vice president of strategic business development for Crowley’s logistics team.
David Higgs, formerly director of Crowley’s product logistics team, was also promoted to vice president of project logistics and global freight management.
The project logistics and global freight management team was formed when Jarvis, Crowley’s Houston-based freight forwarding, export packing and logistics division, was absorbed into Crowley.
Hall, a 40-year industry veteran, led Jarvis for 22 years. In this new role, he is responsible for developing relationships with those in the engineering, procurement and construction management; mining, oil and gas; and energy industries. Additionally, he will continue to develop opportunities among the project logistics and global freight management team, the Crowley solutions group, and the company’s joint venture based in Trinidad, Jarvis Logistics Services.
Higgs, who joined Crowley in 2011 with 21 years of logistics management experience, will develop new business opportunities while working to expand the geographic footprint of Crowley’s traditional logistics capabilities, the company said. He will relocate from Atlanta to Houston to work from the company’s project logistics and global freight management office.
