Jun 29, 2016
After completing a three-year term as president of the Freight Transport Association, Ian Veitch handed over to Leigh Pomlett, Executive Director of the CEVA Group, at FTA’s National Council meeting in London on 21 April.

Leigh Pomlett graduated in business studies from Liverpool John Moores University in 1980 and joined the then government-owned National Freight Consortium as a management trainee.  He has worked in the road transport and logistics industry ever since, mainly in international operations.  

During his extensive career in logistics, Leigh has held various senior positions with BRS, Exel and DHL Supply Chain.  He joined CEVA Group in September 2009 and took on his current role of Executive Director in January 2015, and works on a number of projects and initiatives around the world, including the mentoring of a number of managers within CEVA. 

Leigh Pomlett said, “I am both delighted and honoured to take over the Presidency from Ian. I am really looking forward to getting started. This is an exciting and demanding time for our industry and for the FTA and its members.” 

FTA Chief Executive, David Wells, commented, “Ian has made a significant contribution to FTA for which I am deeply indebted to him.  My best wishes go to Leigh Pomlett, who I know has all the necessary skills to ensure FTA continues its excellent work on behalf of its members.” 

Leigh is married with three children and lives in the Midlands.  Outside his CEVA career he is a qualified pilot and a Director of Walsall Football Club. He also has a successful restaurant business in Lichfeld Staffordshire.
