June 28, 2018: In a recent move, aerospace logistics giant B&H Worldwide has appointed Colin Kaltner as the head of Operations and Sita Tauakipulu takes on the role of Commercial Accounts manager based in Auckland, New Zealand.
These new appointments in the Oceania region will build the company's expertise and provide renewed focus to its services in the region.
Both individuals had previously worked for B&H and are now returning to the company in these senior positions.
Kaltner started his career at B&H in London in 2000 before moving to the B&H Los Angeles office where he was Operations manager. From there he went on to B&H Australia where he held an operational and commercial account management role. In 2016, he left to take up a position at Jetstar Airways as freight manager before re-joining B&H this month. B&H's teams in Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland will now report to Kaltner.
Kaltner said: “I really missed the cut and thrust of working at B&H which is undoubtedly the rising star in this specialist vertical market. So, when this exciting opportunity arose, it presented a wonderful opening to use the skills I have learned from working on both sides of the fence into action and to put them to full use to provide our customers with the first-class service standards which they really need and for which B&H is rightly proud of delivering”.
Sita Tauakipulu has also previously worked with the company in the operations team in New Zealand. In her new position she takes on strategic account management across the country where she is looking forward to the challenge of further building solid business relationships with existing customers, prospects and business partners.
“Being an important part of the Oceania team and helping to drive the business forward will enable me to provide tactical support across the B&H group of companies,” she states.
Both appointments are effective immediately.
