Norbert Dentressangle planner named Young Manager of the Year at CILT North West Awards
Alexandra Cassidy, Planning Manager for Norbert Dentressangle’s FMCG High-Cube Business Unit, has been named Young Manager of the Year at the Chartered Institute of Logistics & Transport North West Annual Awards for Education and Excellence.
The awards, held at Cranage Hall Hotel near Holmes Chapel in Cheshire on 22 June, aim to recognise achievements, encourage the highest standards and promote a professional approach to logistics practice in the North West.
Graduating with a Masters degree in International Business and Languages from Heriot-Watt University, Manchester-based Alex (29), joined TDG (acquired by Norbert Dentressangle in 2011) in 2006 as a graduate trainee. Alex was nominated by her manager, Andrew Blundell in recognition of her outstanding success across a number of roles within the business.
In her current role, Alex manages a team of 25 at Norbert Dentressangle’s national transport planning centre in Chorley, which is responsible for optimising distribution operations for major FMCG customers including Kellogg’s, Kimberly-Clark, LPR, Tata Global Beverages and Weetabix, via Norbert Dentressangle’s shared-user, high cube transport network.
Andrew Blundell said: “Alex’s achievements are way beyond what is normally expected from someone her age, particularly in such a male-dominated industry. With her ability to bring a personal impact on everything she does, coupled with her desire for further personal development and progression, she is a truly outstanding young manager who is a great asset to Norbert Dentressangle and and exciting future role model for our industry.”
In addition to Alex’s award, Norbert Dentressangle also picked up two trophies at the recent Motor Transport Awards, often referred to as the industry ‘Oscars’. The company beat off stiff competition to win the Training award and was also recognised for its continued support for transport charity, Transaid.
