The British International Freight Association (BIFA) Board and Council recently approved the promotion of Carl Hobbis as one of its Executive Director. BIFA’s other executive directors are Spencer Stevenson and Robert Windsor.
Hobbis joined BIFA as training development manager in 2016 and has subsequently orchestrated a remarkable redevelopment of the trade association’s training and industry education functions.
Hobbis had worked in freight forwarding for more than 30 years, having started in oceanfreight before switching to airfreight for Burlington Air Express, later to become BAX. After BAX’s 1997 merger with DB Schenker, he moved into a marketing and communications role.
Robert Keen, Director General of BIFA said, “Carl’s promotion to the BIFA Board is a reward for the sterling works that he has undertaken with his team to expand and develop our training and education offering. He will bring much strength to BIFA’s Board meetings.”
