Following the recent news about the restructure of the group, Doree Bonner International has announced the appointment of Jason Herbert as its new managing director.

With full responsibility for the leadership and development of Doree Bonner’s branch network, Jason will also play a key role in the strategic growth of the company. He will be based at the company’s head office in Dartford and will report to Joint Chief Executive Officers Geoff Watson and Gordon Lyall.  

Jason brings with him over 30 years of leadership experience and knowledge of the removals industry. After graduating with a degree in economics he joined the National Freight Consortium as a graduate trainee – appointed by Geoff Watson when he was with the organisation. Jason then held several senior management positions during his 28-year period with Pickfords and was then appointed managing director of Excess International Movers, his most recent role.  

In a joint statement Geoff Watson and Gordon Lyall said: “Jason’s track record, experience and contacts in the industry are second to none and we are thrilled to have him on board. Attracting someone of Jason’s calibre into the business is a great endorsement of our strategy and ambition. He brings with him a wealth of experience which will be vital as we continue our ambitious plans to grow the company.”  

“Doree Bonner International has a deserved reputation as one of the leading removal companies and a company I have respected as a competitor over many years,” said Jason.  “We have a tremendous opportunity to grow further, bringing our strong business values and service delivery to match the demands and high expectations of our customers. I am both delighted and excited to be on board and part of the team.”
