The Board of Directors at UTC Overseas has appointed a new leadership team to drive continued expansion in the packaging logistics market. Richard Schues, formerly Denver branch manager, will assume the role of director, global packaging, and Eliana McCaffery, previously regional development manager, will move into the role of global development manager, packaging.
UTC has been a driving force in the packaging logistics sector, servicing some of the industry’s largest manufacturers for over 30 years, offering a level of service and knowledge exemplary in the industry. The knowledge gained over the years can transfer to new sectors within the packaging vertical and drive growth to maximize opportunities.
“It gives me great pleasure to grow from within, and I am proud to support Richard and Eliana and invest in their new roles. Both are accomplished professionals that will guide our development and growth in the packaging logistics market. They will be responsible for exploring new verticals and strengthening relationships with our current, valued customers. UTC is known for offering outstanding service, and I know they will continue the tradition,” states Hans Meyer, UTC CEO.
Schues brings over 30 years of international experience in packaging and manufacturing equipment transportation. He has moved can lines and auto manufacturing equipment into South America for Ball, Crown, and VW. He worked in Germany, the UK, and Brazil, relocating to the US in 2017 to join UTC.
McCaffery has been in the logistics industry since 2015 when she began working for a chartering company in a sales and marketing capacity. She joined UTC in 2019 to focus on identifying and acquiring new business for UTC’s Global Energy and Capital Projects sector based in Houston.
Schues and McCaffery will continue to be supported by UTC’s experienced packaging logistics teams in Chicago, Philadelphia, Denver, Rochelle Park, and overseas offices. Bryan Fathauer, senior vice president US operations, will assist the group in an advisory capacity.
“I am excited to lead this group as we explore new opportunities and expand this key vertical. I have a long tenure in this industry and look forward to increasing UTC’s reach. UTC is well versed in moving packaging equipment and related cargo to remote and challenging areas, and our knowledge can transfer to new sectors that can benefit from our logistics know-how,” states Schues.
