Brendan Boyd.

Silk Logistics Holdings Limited today announced that Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Brendan Boyd, would retire from his current executive role.

The decision is effective immediately.

Boyd despite stepping down will continue to support and advise the company as he transitions to a Non-Executive Director where he will be able to provide stability as “an invaluable source of customer, industry, operational and strategic knowledge,” the company said in a statement.

Accordingly, the Board has announced that Co-Founder and current Executive Director and Chief Customer Officer, John Sood, will be Boyd’s successor.

Sood’s appointment as Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer is effective from 22 May 2024.

“We would like to extend our appreciation to Brendan for his leadership, service, passion, contribution, and accomplishments,” Silk said in a prepared statement making special mention of the positive impact Boyd had had on the careers of many at the company.

“As Co-Founder and CEO, Brendan has successfully guided the Company through a prolonged period of growth and transformation.

“Brendan is highly respected throughout the industry and within Silk and will be missed by the team.

“We wish Brendan all the best and look forward to working with him as an active member of the Silk Board.”

Before founding Silk, Sood worked at Swire Cold Storage, Westgate Logistics and Linfox.
