Jun 13, 2017 (LBO) - Leading logistics provider EFL announced the appointment of three new independent directors to its international board as part of its ongoing efforts to add international expertise to its management team. Ram Menen, Stephen Dearnley and Mike Sherman joined as independent directors to the board led by Founder and President Hanif Yusoof. All three directors carry with them a wealth of experience having led and grown international brands for over three decades, the company said issuing a statement. In their new roles, they will guide EFL’s global expansion strategy as the company establishes itself as Sri Lanka’s first international logistics brand. “I am extremely pleased to welcome Ram, Steve and Mike to the EFL team. They each come from a different area of supply chain and their collective insights and knowledge will drive EFL towards the next stage of our ambitious plans," Yusoof said. "Their appointments are in line with our efforts to keep raising the bar towards developing innovative solutions and becoming more technology enabled.” Steve Dearnley has with him more than 35 years experience in freight and logistics while Ram Menen is an icon in the modern air cargo industry who was the cornerstone of building Emirates as the world largest cargo carrier during three decades at the airline. With over 40 years of experience, Mike Sherman has worked with some of the largest retail brands such as Limited Brands, Abercrombie & Fitch and Sony. EFL first ventured overseas in 1993 going into Bangladesh and since then has established over 55 offices in strategic locations across the globe. This announcement follows the appointment of Peter Larsen last year as Chief Operating Officer to head all overseas expansion.
