The Benevolent’s Chris Porter joins Kukla Beverage Logistics
Chris Porter, the former CEO of drinks trade charity The Benevolent, has taken on the role of business development manager at Kukla Beverage Logistics.
In his new role Porter, who prior to the Benevolent worked for logistics firm Hillebrand, will promote a global range of freight and logistics services to the UK drinks industry.
He will also seek to consolidate the growing reputation of the company, founded in 2017.
Porter said of the appointment: “I am delighted and excited to be working with a wonderful team of talented professionals who are dedicated to providing a communicative and personalised service to the drinks industry’s supply chains.
“It’s a very challenging time to join a company specialising in inbound freight solutions. From what I have seen so far though, I am hugely impressed by the proactive can-do attitude of the whole team.
“Having worked with most of them, I have no doubt that they will continue to deliver this quality of service. I’m really looking forward to being part of this growth and demonstrating the advantages that a partnership with Kukla will offer to our clients.”
Kukla’s managing director, Steve Wood, added: “Chris is a highly respected figure within the drinks sector with a similar philosophy of core values – a perfect fit as we continue our development as a strong, credible market player.“
