Logistics company Nexus Logistics has appointed Mike Lightfoot to the position of CEO, effective from June 21.
Mike is an experienced and award-winning CEO, most recently heading Milmeq International Ltd, a global exporter of protein processing equipment.
As CEO of Milmeq, Mike successfully led the company’s expansion and was recognised by winning the Supreme Award at the 2015 Westpac Business Excellence Awards Auckland, and the 2015 New Zealand Trade and Enterprise Excellence in Innovation award.
Prior to his time at Milmeq Mike was CEO of Buckley Systems, a high tech manufacturing business also exporting to the global market.
Nexus Logistics board chair Garrie Hoddinott said “We are pleased to have someone with Mike’s skill and experience to take Nexus Logistics through its next stage of development.”
Mike Lightfoot said “New Zealand is a long, thin, rugged, sparsely populated trading nation, miles from anywhere. An efficient supply chain is essential to our well-being, but hard to deliver.
"I love a challenge and strive to drive improvement within the businesses I lead, so I’m looking forward to working with the Nexus team to deliver the supply chain logistics that New Zealand needs and deserves.”
