Napier Port welcomes new Commercial Manager

Napier Port has announced the appointment of our new Commercial Manager, David Kriel.

David comes to Napier Port from Tauranga, where he has been Manager Business Logistics at Lodestar, the logistics arm of Oji Fibre Solutions.

David’s wealth of experience within New Zealand’s logistics industry and, in particular, a real understanding of our forestry product customers, will be a huge asset to Napier Port.

He has a strong focus on partnerships and is a big believer in collaboration, having come from a cargo-owner background, so he will play a key role in driving value for our customers.

David will start at Napier Port on Monday, October 8th.

Introducing David Kriel

David has been living in New Zealand for 13 years, having emigrated from South Africa with his wife Mariana and two sons.

His career in logistics in South Africa encompassed passenger, road, rail, distribution and sea freight, culminating in serving as a director on the board of Imperial Cargo, a division of Imperial Holdings – the largest mobility conglomerate in Africa.

More recently, David has managed the logistics of Oji Fibre Solutions – Lodestar, with specific responsibility for coordinating fully-integrated logistics services to the Oji and Carter Holt Harvey group of companies, both domestically to over 117 destinations around the world.

David’s specific areas of interest lie in strategic relationships, sustainability, risk and security of supply.

He is also dedicated to giving back, as a member of three different international industry bodies with a focus on training and development, as well as providing humanitarian logistical assistance.

    At the United Nations summit meeting in September 2015, world leaders adopted 17 global goals (and 169 targets) as a set of universal goals that aim to address the urgent environmental, political and economic challenges facing our world. These are known as the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
