Windsor Stev_opt (1)The British International Freight Association (BIFA) has approved the promotion of Robert Windsor (first left) and Spencer Stevenson to executive director positions.

The association’s director general, Robert Keen said: “These are well deserved promotions. Both have been with the Secretariat for quite a while and have excelled in their fields of responsibility.”

Windsor, who joined the BIFA secretariat in June 2009, will continue to lead the trade association’s representational work with government and other organisations.

“We anticipate a greater workload once the details of Brexit are known, so Windsor will add this to his existing portfolio and we will recruit a Customs Advisor to assist in our policy and compliance activities.”

Stevenson, who joined in June 2010, will continue his role overseeing membership and training activity and coordinate the activities of others in the secretariat that share differing roles dealing with BIFA’s training provision.

The association represents over 1,500 UK companies in the logistics and supply chain management sector. This includes organisations engaged in the movement of freight to and from the UK air, road, sea and rail. Some members are also involved in providing customs clearance and other cross border controls.
