FTA Appoints New CEO

Mar 02, 2015
The Freight Transport Association has announced the appointment of David Wells as its new chief executive officer. He will take over from Theo de Pencier - who has led the Association for eight years - on 15 May.

FTA President Ian Veitch said, “As FTA’s President I would like to congratulate David Wells on his appointment as chief executive. With his extensive business and management experience David emerged as the outstanding candidate to become FTA’s CEO.  He clearly demonstrated his knowledge and understanding of the freight industry and the logistics sector from both a policy and commercial aspect.” 

David Wells originally joined FTA in 2009 as finance and IT director and has subsequently taken on additional responsibility for the Association’s vehicle inspection service, training and the tachograph analysis service including the successful development and recent launch of Visionfta.

David Wells said, “I am delighted to be taking on this role at an exciting time in FTA’s development. There are big challenges and changes facing the freight industry including driver shortage, road investment and the impending general election. It is important for me to continue the work FTA does in support of our members and I will strive to build on the success and reputation of the Association incorporating the priorities of the freight and logistics sector.”

Theo de Pencier will continue as the FTA chief executive until the end of April 2015 and will work with David Wells during the first few months to ensure a smooth transition.
