Collin Rozario to lead the company's air freight development in Southeast Asia
Sydney, Australia (April 6, 2012) – Vanguard Logistics Services is pleased to announce the promotion of Collin Rozario to the position of General Manager Air Freight – South Pacific & Southeast Asia. This promotion is an expansion of his existing responsibilities as the Air Freight GM for the South Pacific region. In this new role, Rozario is charged with developing the organization's Air Freight operational and sales capabilities in Southeast Asia by leveraging the company's own and agency air freight networks.
Based in Sydney, Rozario illustrated his aptitude for building strong customer relationships and advancing operational growth in the successful development of the South Pacific Air Freight program, his primary focus since joining the company in 2003. These new responsibilities will allow him to apply his extensive experience to Vanguard's Southeast Asia network with his initial focus set on Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.
Since beginning his career with air freight in 1983, Rozario held a variety of international managerial posts, including India, Nigeria, Dubai and, most recently, in Australia and New Zealand.
We are very pleased with this development," commented Vanguard's Jeff Lee, Regional Managing Director - Southeast Asia & Middle East. "Vanguard is ideally situated in the region and I am confident in Collin's ability to successfully extend our reach into air freight. We are counting on the support of Vanguard offices around the world to work closely with our region to pursue and develop every air freight opportunity." Over the last few years, the neutral handling of air freight proved to be an important offering in Vanguard's service portfolio, developed to meet the growing needs of the freight forwarding community. "It is a profitable product for Vanguard as a whole," said Lee, adding, "Southeast Asia is a significant source of merchandise, machinery and a whole range of products for the rest of the world. We look forward to working with other Vanguard offices to make the most of this great opportunity."
Rozario will continue to report directly to Zeljko Blazic, Regional Managing Director – South Pacific, and work with Jeff Lee on matters pertaining to Southeast Asia. This position is effective immediately.
