PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 8, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Mike Andaloro has been named president of global logistics firm BDP International. He succeeds John Bolte, who will head a new wholly-owned subsidiary, 360o Predictive Logistics and Supply Chain Management. Also, Lance Malesh, global chief sales and marketing officer, has been promoted to the newly created position of chief commercial officer.
Andaloro will have responsibility for BDP's overall performance, including global operations, BDP Transport, sales, business development and the global talent pool at company-owned and joint venture units. He has worked for BDP for more than 25 years, most recently as global chief operating officer, a role he will retain as president. He has also served as managing director of Asia Pacific and chief operating officer of the company's Global Process Accounts business unit.
"Working closely with our ownership, board of directors and leadership team, Mike will play a leading role in shaping our strategic path forward," BDP Chairman and CEO Richard J. Bolte, Jr. said in announcing the appointment. "His proven experience in customer relationship management, and success in setting and executing against the most exacting standards for operational excellence make him the right choice at the right time to help us achieve our full potential and help our customers grow."
As president of 360o Predictive Logistics, which is to be launched in early 2016, John Bolte will be responsible for its strategic direction and executive leadership of all functional departments, including technology, operations, sales, marketing and compliance. He also will be responsible for setting strategic and financial objectives, measuring performance and leading the risk management, corporate governance and compliance functions. In addition, he will represent the company in public engagements with customers, stakeholders and government agencies.
"More of our clients are asking us to move up the supply chain with an integrated service offering," Richard Bolte said. "We are in a unique position to give our customers and others a more complete view of their global processes, eliminate waste and complexity, and mitigate costs through greater consolidation of providers. This calls for a fully managed, integrated supply chain services enterprise to accommodate rapidly changing market dynamics and business conditions. With John's leadership, 360o Predictive Logistics will be a highly entrepreneurial business backed by BDP's culture, values and innovation."
Malesh will be responsible for all new business creation functions, including ocean, air and surface transportation as well as general management of the company's new 360o Predictive Logistics unit. These responsibilities are in addition to his continued leadership of the global sales, business development and marketing/communications departments. He joined BDP in 2013 as global chief sales and marketing officer.
"Lance has made a game-changing impact on our global growth strategy to become a more sales-focused enterprise," Richard Bolte said. "As we continue to refine and build on that strategy, he will bring cohesion and a seamless alliance between all our new revenue opportunities."
