FedEx Express (FedEx), a subsidiary of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX) and the world’s largest express transportation company, is pleased to announce the appointment of FedEx veteran Sean Healy as Regional Chief Operating Officer (COO) FedEx Express Europe. He takes over from Michael Holt who is set to retire by the end of September 2018.
Healy, previously Senior Vice President of Transportation, International, Planning and Strategy at FedEx Freight, succeeds Holt in the role.
Holt will stay on until end of September 2018 to assist with the transition.
Healy joined FedEx Express in 1986 as a package handler while in college and rose through the ranks to become Vice President of Global Planning and Engineering. In his most recent position as Senior Vice President at FedEx Freight, he led the overall design, development and implementation of technology solutions and processes that have positioned FedEx Freight as the market leader in the North American less-than-truckload (LTL) industry. He was also responsible for managing the road network at FedEx Freight, which last year logged over one billion miles.
Healy’s work in Europe will involve continued operational integration, as well as leveraging the company’s networks, people and innovation to deliver service excellence and support growth across the region.
“Sean has more than 30 years’ industry experience and has been at the forefront of operational innovation and service excellence for customers within the FedEx family. His additional experience leading teams through change means he is an excellent addition to the FedEx Express Europe leadership team at an exciting time for the company,” said Bert Nappier, President FedEx Express Europe and CEO of TNT. “I would like to thank Michael Holt for the invaluable contribution he has made to our company, especially the vital work he has done since the TNT acquisition in 2016, and wish him well in his retirement,” Nappier added.
Commenting on his appointment, Healy said: “FedEx Express Europe is one of the most dynamic places to be within FedEx, not only with the TNT integration, but also as the logistics industry as a whole is undergoing transformation. I look forward to working with the European team on delivering our vision for Europe.’’
