GAC Dubai recruits new head of logistics
David Burck, UK North regional manager with Gulf Agency Company (GAC), is joining the GAC Dubai team in July to spearhead the company’s logistics operations including air freight, sea freight non vessel operating common carrier (NVOCC), projects and liner shipping.
Burck, who originally started his career with GAC in 2008 as branch manager of the GAC Logistics Manchester office, brings with him a wealth of experience to the new role.
Before working at GAC, Burck worked in retail business and international exports, which has given him valuable insight that can only help his handling of GAC Dubai’s logistics business under the strategic direction of managing director Peter Bengtsson.
“The UK-UAE trade lane is one of our most important routes, so David’s experience here will be of great benefit, both to the company and our clients,” said Bengtsson.
David replaces Jan Kielmann who was appointed director of Global Marine Logistics for GAC Marine Logistics (GML) in May.
