UAE logistics veteran Brian Cartwright joins Pedersen & Partners
Pedersen & Partners, a leading international Executive Search firm with 57 wholly owned offices in 53 countries, has appointed Brian Cartwright to its Supply Chain & Logistics sub-practice as a Client Partner in Dubai.
Cartwright has more than fifteen years of experience in Executive Search and Recruitment, having successfully carried out hundreds of senior leadership searches for the global Supply Chain & Logistics sector.
His Middle East & Africa experience consists of assignments completed over the course of a decade living and working in UAE. He specialises in Supply Chain & Logistics-related functions at CxO, VP, and Director level in global, regional, and country level roles, working with service providers and end-user companies including large listed corporations, family-owned conglomerates, SMEs, and start-ups.
During his career, he has successfully managed businesses in the Middle East and Europe. Prior to joining Pedersen & Partners, Mr. Cartwright founded his own Executive Search and Leadership Advisory firm, which focused on adding value to organisations, and recruiting senior executives across the entire Supply Chain spectrum.
Cartwright is a regular contributor to Supply Chain & Logistics industry media, sharing insights and advice through numerous blogs, articles, and magazine interviews with senior executives.
“At Pedersen & Partners we strive to support our clients’ efforts to secure the best Supply Chain and Logistics leadership, allowing them to successfully grow and expand into new markets while simultaneously remaining competitive,” said Michael Al-Nassir, partner and the head of Middle East, Africa, Central & South Asia at Pedersen & Partners.
“Our ‘best team forward’ approach will greatly benefit from Brian’s wide spectrum experience from corporations to start-ups, as he has completed mandates which ultimately signed on leaders who helped make Supply Chain & Logistics operations efficient, cost-effective, and fully integrated with Industry 4.0. systems,” he added.
“Disruptive, digitally-savvy, and adaptive leaders in the Supply Chain and Logistics sector are highly valued and I’m excited to be able to tap into Pedersen & Partners’ market intelligence, network, and support capabilities across the globe,” said Cartwright.
“As a formerly independent recruiter, I look forward to partnering with my colleagues and enriching our joint capabilities for the benefit of our Middle East & Africa clients, as well as in other geographies.”
