Hermes Logistics Technologies appoints Marcus Campbell as the new CTO
United Kingdom based Hermes Logistics Technologies (HLT) announces the onboarding of Marcus Campbell as its new chief technology officer (CTO).
He will be part of HLT’s new implementations and upgrade drive as HLT expands its software engineering internationally to support ongoing growth.
“I am excited to join the Hermes technology team. I will make it our mission to accelerate our digital transformation and use technology innovation to deliver the next generation of cargo systems for our customers,” said Marcus Campbell, CTO, HLT.
Marcus joins as HLT successfully completes back-to-back Hermes 5 (H5) virtual systems upgrades for customers including various locations for Menzies, dnata in Amsterdam, and WFS in Frankfurt (FCS).
H5 rollouts are said to be a first step for users to adopt HLT’s New Generation (NG) ecosystem known as Hermes NG.
Hermes NG includes Hermes Cloud Cargo Management System and Hub Management System, Hermes NG BI and Datalakes, Hermes Self-Serve Apps, and Hermes Landside Management.
Hermes NG data can be used with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms to help decision making and optimise business and handling processes.
“HLT’s growth and the ability to have a global workforce lead’s HLT to recruit new talent in the UK, India, and the Middle East. Being location agnostic allows us to pick the right resources regardless of where they are,” said Yuval Baruch, CEO, HLT.
Marcus replaces Alex Labonne in the role, who leaves a legacy at HLT for Marcus to build on including HLT’s New Generation ecosystem (Hermes NG).
“Marcus will support the ongoing development of our Digital Ecosystem bringing a rich history of tech expertise,” said Yuval.
The next few months at HLT will see the company focusing on moving forward with the major new implementation started earlier this year as well as working with existing companies to continue the upgrades effort.
