New CEO Appointed at Palletforce

EV Cargo’s Palletforce has promoted its current COO Mark Tapper (pictured) to CEO of Palletforce as part of a series of executive appointments to strengthen its leadership team, continue to deliver stability and consistency, and drive ongoing member success and service excellence.

Tapper joined Palletforce in 2016, initially serving as Operations Director before being promoted to COO in 2021. In his new role, he will report directly to Heath Zarin, Founder, Chairman and CEO of EV Cargo, and Chairman of Palletforce.

Under Tapper’s leadership since 2021, the company has delivered on its commitment to customer service excellence and an unrivalled customer experience. The network has been strengthened thanks to the addition of strategic new members, securing best-in-class hauliers in key postcode areas.

Additional executive changes to solidify the leadership team include the promotion of David Breeze, currently Network Development Director, to COO of Palletforce with an expanded remit. Breeze joined in 2016, having accumulated over 30 years of experience in the global logistics and parcels sectors, most recently as International Strategy and Projects Director for Royal Mail.

Dave Holland, who has worked with Palletforce for over 15 years, will also take on a more direct role driving member relations and engagement strategy at Palletforce in addition to his current role as EVP Marketing and Communications.

Mark Tapper, Palletforce CEO, said: “I’m excited to take on the CEO role and to lead the network into the future as we continue our focus on powering member success and driving an unrivalled quality service.

“Along with the other appointments, Palletforce has one of the most experienced senior teams in the sector and we intend to leverage that expertise to guarantee continuity, network stability and strengthen our approach to ensure members have a competitive advantage in the marketplace.”
