New ops director for Swift

Distributor Swift Electrical has announced the name of its new operations director.

Richard Buckley takes over the role with responsibility for the introduction and implementation of a new route scheduling system as well as overseeing the company’s entire warehousing and transport proposition.

Buckley held the same role at Britannia Living when Swift owner and managing director Chris Honer was in charge there. He was also briefly the logistics director at Haier UK.

“Richard is a fantastic addition to the Swift Family and is a great advocate of putting the customer at the heart of everything we do,” Honer said.
