Bestseller appoints director of logistics
Bestseller, the owner of Jack & Jones and J. Lindebergh, has appointed Allan Kjærgaard as director of logistics.
In his new role, he will be responsible for enhancing the company’s full value chain, which is set for significant investment in the coming years.
Kjærgaard previously worked with Danish furniture retailer JYSK where he headed up the company’s logistic operations. His prior roles also include being production director at Lantmännen Unibake and operations manager position at Carlsberg.
At Bestseller, he will also lead a process to enhance the company’s supply chain.
Bestseller chief executive and owner Anders Holch Povlsen said: “Logistics has never been more important and we have invested and improved our supply chain extensively in recent years. Our focus has both been commercial and organisational, so that we can be even closer to our customers, but also so that we can reach the ambitious climate goals we have set where transport will naturally be an integral factor. We are all going to significantly continue and accelerate this work. Our ambitions are great and we need to work hard to achieve them, and I am sure that Allan is the right person to contribute to this.”
Due to take up his role on 1 December, Kjærgaard will assume responsibility for the logistics function from Bestseller’s chief financial officer Thomas Børglum Jensen.
Bestseller has recently opened a new logistics centre in Spain and has signed a deal with Maersk to secure CO2-neutral ocean transport.
