XPO Logistics Nomeia Baris Oran a Director Financeiro da GXO Logistics na sequência da Cisão Prevista

Noticias | Greenwich, Conn. | 6 de Abril de 2021

A XPO Logistics anunciou que Baris Oran será o director financeiro da GXO Logistics, na sequência da cisão planeada do negócio de logística da XPO. Oran integrará a XPO enquanto director financeiro do segmento logístico a partir de Maio de 2021, e liderará a organização financeira global da GXO quando o processo de cisão previsto estiver concluído. 
 
Os 20 anos de experiência de Oran na área das finanças incluem posições de liderança em multinacionais líderes de mercado. Ocupou recentemente o cargo de director financeiro no grupo Sabanci, que é uma das maiores empresas turcas cotadas em bolsa, com filiais nos sectores industrial, retalhista e de serviços financeiros, e com rendimentos combinados acima dos 15 mil milhões de dólares. Na sua qualidade de director financeiro, Oran tem sido responsável pela realização de numerosas introduções na bolsa, fusões e aquisições e desinvestimentos, melhorando a alocação de capital e liderando iniciativas de desalavancagem e gestão de riscos. 
 
Além de director financeiro na Sabanci, Oran ocupou o cargo de director financeiro na Kordsa, inovadora global de tecnologias de reforço industrial. Foi presidente, vice-presidente ou membro do conselho de administração de oito empresas cotadas em bolsa e quatro empresas privadas, incluindo o presidente do conselho de administração da Teknosa, um retalhista omnicanal do Grupo Sabanci. Oran tem um mestrado em administração de empresas pela Universidade da Geórgia e formação académica em gestão avançada pela Escola de Gestão kellogg da Northwestern University. É membro do conselho de administração da TUSIAD, uma organização associada ao empregador europeu BusinessEurope, e membro do Conselho Global de Directores Financeiros da CNBC. 
 
Brad Jacobs, presidente e CEO da XPO Logistics, declarou: "Estamos satisfeitos que o nosso plano de cisão tenha um líder financeiro forte e pragmático. Baris é um director financeiro eficaz com uma longa história de adaptação de estratégias que contribuem para a criação de valor por parte das organizações financeiras.  A nossa equipa de gestão da GXO tem actualmente cinco executivos de topo, contando-se integrar outros no futuro." 
 
Como já foi anunciado, a XPO planeia concluir o spin-out do seu negócio de logística numa empresa independente com acções na bolsa no segundo semestre de 2021. Sendo o segundo maior fornecedor de logística contratual do mundo, a GXO estará bem posicionada para capitalizar os principais ventos favoráveis da expansão do comércio electrónico, a procura por parte dos clientes de automação e uma tendência crescente para o outsourcing da cadeia de abastecimento. Actualmente, as operações são realizadas em aproximadamente 890 agências em 27 países.
