Unsworth names Thomas Kuehn as managing director

Thomas Kuehn has joined leading independent freight forwarder Unsworth, as managing director of its UK business, with current managing director, Richard Hogg becoming chief executive officer of the Unsworth group, and Charles Hogg leading the company’s client solutions team as commercial director.

Kuehn joins from World Transport Agency (WTA), where he had been MD for almost a decade, in a year that will see Unsworth celebrate the golden jubilee of its formation in 1974.

With a strong track record in developing independent freight forwarding businesses, he also spent ten years at JE Bernard as global key account director and was a director at Kuehne+Nagel.

Kuehn said: “My vision for the future of freight forwarding aligns perfectly with Unsworth’s demonstrable investment in technological innovation and business processes, proven commitment to client satisfaction and the promotion of a culture of continuous improvement.

“Technology has been a huge enabler of the company’s growth, and will continue to be so. In my new role, I see a tremendous opportunity to further leverage data and technological solutions to better serve our customers; and differentiate us from our competition.”

Unsworth group CEO Richard Hogg added: “In a landmark year for the company, this appointment is part of our ongoing strategy to strengthen our senior management team and capabilities to ensure that we can meet our expansion goals in the UK and overseas.”
