There is a changing of the guard at one of the UK’s leading pallet networks, as Pallet-Track announces the appointment of Caroline Green MBE as its new chief executive officer (CEO).
Caroline, who was appointed as Pallet-Track’s chief financial officer (CFO) in September 2020, will replace Nigel Parkes, the founder and managing director who is stepping down from the board after 19 years at the helm.
Nigel, 50, along with the board, had already begun the process of looking for a successor. “I knew I was going to step back from the day-to-day running of the business and we were going into the market to recruit a replacement for me,” he said.
“However, working with Caroline from the autumn of last year, I soon realised that she was bringing a new fresh perspective to the business as CFO – she is so enthusiastic and a breath of fresh air, so the board and I asked her if she would consider taking on the CEO role and I’m delighted to say that she accepted.
Caroline said: “This is a bittersweet moment for me – I am extremely honoured and excited to be taking Pallet-Track forward, but unfortunately, it will be without Nigel day to day – these are very big shoes to fill.”
A hands-on operator, Caroline, will be quick to build on the business’s strong reputation for the next stage of Pallet-Track’s success, taking on a loyal team and the 84 shareholder members.
