The British International Freight Association (BIFA) Board and Council recently approved the promotion of Robert Windsor and Spencer Stevenson to directors of BIFA.
Windsor, who joined the BIFA secretariat in June 2009 will continue to lead the trade association’s representational work with government and many other organisations that BIFA seeks to influence on behalf of its freight forwarding members.
Stevenson, who joined the BIFA secretariat in June 2010, will continue his role overseeing membership and training activity and coordinate the activities of others in the secretariat who share differing roles dealing with BIFA’s training provision.
BIFA director general, Robert Keen says: “These are well deserved promotions. Both have been with the Secretariat for quite a while and have excelled in their fields of responsibility.
“We anticipate a greater workload once the details of Brexit are known, so Windsor will add this to his existing portfolio and we will recruit a Customs Advisor to assist in our policy and compliance activities.”
