Appointment supports growth strategy for Culina

21 September 2011

Culina Group has added to its leadership team with the appointment of Glyn Davies as a non-executive director

The company has grown significantly in the past few years through the success of its shared user distribution model and complementary services for clients in food production and retailing. It plans to double the business within the next five years through organic growth and strategic acquisition and this new appointment is designed to add more insight from the road haulage and transport.

“I am delighted that Glyn has joined us at Culina in such exciting times,” says Thomas van Mourik, CEO, Culina Group. “The next five years are pivotal for us and Glyn’s expertise and support could not come at a better time. He will be instrumental in supporting our strategic plans to double the business by 2016.”

Glyn Davies has experience of the road transport and haulage sectors built up over nearly 50 years. During his career he has founded, owned and led a number of successful businesses. Each has been built on his understanding of the market and appreciation that cost plays a key role in transport operations.

After starting his career with P&O Road Services in the 1960s, Glyn founded Russell Davies in 1974 and led the company for 21 years to build a £100 million turnover business before selling to a major industrial group. He then co-founded Hanbury Davies and created another strong business before it was bought by a large distribution company ten years later.

Since 2008 he has focused on business interests including Hanbury Riverside, a commercial vehicle contract hire and sales company, and a property development organisation which he manages with his son. He has also previously held non-executive director roles at a number of businesses.

“Culina is a big business with ambitious plans,” says Glyn Davies. “I’ve known Thomas van Mourik for many years and I am looking forward to helping the business grow by sharing my experience and insight.”

In his spare time Glyn supports Ipswich Town Football Club and is a keen follower of music and motor cars.
