Suddath has announced that Tom Robbins is the new general manager for its Los Angeles branch.
Robbins will take over responsibility for both the operational and strategic leadership of the branch, following Darren Cook’s relocation to Jacksonville for a new role as vice president of local services product development.
Robbins is a highly accomplished business management professional with more than 25 years of experience implementing strategic plans that enhance fiscal performance, inspire collaboration and achieve corporate objectives. Before joining Suddath, Robbins worked as National Director of Operations for CORT Event Furnishings, a leading provider in the commercial rental furniture sector in Anaheim. Prior to that, he ran a consulting firm specialising in providing strategies to enhance critical business processes, logistics and sales. He also has previous experience as the general manager for Freeman, vice president of business development for United Service Companies and regional vice president/general manager for GES Exposition Services.
“Tom brings with him extensive operational leadership experience in various sectors, including retail/commercial furniture and expositions and conventions,” said Brad Liddie, Chief Operating Officer for Suddath Moving & Logistics. “He also has significant experience in leading cross-functional work teams, including sales, which will be a great asset to him in this role.”
Robbins’ focus for the LA market for Suddath will be to drive continuous improvement in the physical operations both inside and outside the four walls of the operation, and to champion the company’s culture of safety, quality and growth. Suddath has been a trusted moving, storage and logistics provider in Los Angeles since 1991.
