CMA-CGM Thailand Appoints New General Manager

CMA-CGM Thailand have announced that Mr. David Ames will be the new General Manager CMA-CGM Thailand beginning July 11th, 2017. Mr. Ames succeeds Mr. Steve Bradley, who held the position for three years and has now been called back to continue his work at CMA-CGM’s head office in Marseilles.

Mr. Ames has had a long and storied career over his 30 years in the business; running the gambit of companies from container liners to logistics businesses and ship owners. He has also spent much time in Thailand previously, working in the Kingdom from 1998-2001 and from 2009-Present.

Mr. Bradley held his position in Thailand for 3 years, but has been in Asia in total for the past 10 years. This on the ground experience was crucial to him being selected for his new position in Marseilles as their new Shared Service Interactivity Director. With both APL and CMA-CGM having shared service centers around the world, his task will be to bring those centers together and harmonize the way they work and optimize them for the benefit of the agencies and ultimately customers.

Mr. Bradley said, “Working in Thailand has been a fascinating and challenging assignment for me over the last 3 years. Our service portfolio and customer service capability are highly competitive and I feel confident that the combination of CMA-CGM Group’s ambition in SE Asia and the CMA-CGM Thailand team’s proven capacity to adapt and react will ensure that the company’s growth will continue. My family and I have tremendously enjoyed and appreciated the rich experience of living in Thailand and elsewhere in Asia and following my promotion to Head Office we leave, reluctantly, but with a wealth of great memories. I’m confident in David’s ability and his drive to continue building upon the path laid in the coming years. As I pass the baton on to David, I wish him and CMA-CGM Thailand every success.”

Speaking on his new appointment, Mr. Ames said, “We need to continue the work that Steve has made in terms of process improvements, particularly with the integration of APL into the family. We need to work very hard to integrate the staff in terms of both hearts and minds into CMA-CGM. It’s critically important that we empower the staff with the tools and the skills they need in order to really serve our customers to the best of their, and the organization’s ability. We are reaching out to customers to assure them that the change in management is a natural evolution with these organizations. We look forward to providing them with improved service as CMA-CGM affirms its position as a global shipping leader.”
