MOL has announced another step in its expanded commitment to refrigerated cargo service capabilities with the restructuring of its refrigerated sales and trade team. MOL's three US Sales Regions now have assigned sales managers whose primary focus will be developing its refrigerated market initiatives.
The appointments are: Mark McQueen, regional manager, reefer sales, Atlantic Region; Larry Flading, regional manager, reefer sales, Central Region; and Pat Ryan, regional manager, reefer sales, Pacific Region.
"Our new organization is structured in a way that is closer to the customer and markets critical to the refrigerated commodity sector," said Executive Vice President Tom Kelly. "These individuals will concentrate on providing the highest quality of service and developing growth opportunities for our customers and MOL."
In addition to the sales appointments, Lincoln Pei has been appointed to director of refrigerated services. Pei reports to Tsunemichi Mukai, vice president, Transpacific, Caribbean and Latin trade for MOL Liner.
"Mark, Larry, and Pat are experienced sales managers who will be deployed as an integrated team to work directly with Mr. Pei and sales management to achieve MOL's growth and objectives in refrigerated commodities," added Kelly.
