Brambles switches up Recall management

Pooling solutions company Brambles (NYSE: BXB) announced (link opens in PDF) today that it has hired Doug Pertz as new Group President of Recall, its information management business.

Elton Potts, Recall’s current Group President, will step down in April after 11 years with Brambles and six years leading Recall. Mr. Pertz most recently served as Chairman and CEO of Bolder US Sanitation Group, and has had significant experience leading diversified industrial companies. He has previously held CEO positions at Clipper Windpower, Mosaic, and Culligan Water Technologies, as well as management roles at Cummins and Caterpillar.

“I am delighted to welcome someone of Doug’s calibre to the leadership team at Brambles,” said CEO Tom Gorman in a statement today. “We are on track with our operational efficiency improvements in Recall. Now, as we consider options for the future development of the business, it is the right time to make this leadership change. Doug brings strong credentials as a leader able to build long-term growth in international companies.”

Brambles isn’t the only company paving the way for future profit. The Australian Financial Review says “good quality Australian shares that have a long history of paying dividends are a real alternative to a term deposit.” Get “3 Stocks for the Great Dividend Boom” in our special FREE report. Click here now to find out the names, stock symbols, and full research for our three favourite income ideas, all completely free!
