Morley, Regional Manager Western Europe at BIFA member company, OIA Global, who has been Vice-Chair for the past two years, was appointed a director of BIFA in 2017 and chairs the trade association’s Midlands region.

Alongside Morley will be Charles Hogg, Commercial Director of Unsworth, who has been elected as Vice-Chair. Hogg is currently Chair of BIFA’s Maritime, Road and Rail Policy Group.

Stubbings becomes Immediate Past Chair for a two-year term, and Sir Peter Bottomley, MP, remains as BIFA president.

BIFA Director General Robert Keen comments: “In welcoming Rachel and Charles into their new roles, I wish to express my appreciation for the contribution made by John Stubbings over many years; and pleasure that Sir Peter has agreed to continue in office.

“Rachel and Charles’ wide-ranging experience and senior roles in successful freight forwarding companies will ensure that BIFA and its members will benefit greatly from these new appointments.”
