Vic Brodrick takes up his new role on May 1 having previously worked as a consultant with responsibility for sales strategy.
Vic has an extensive background working in senior roles in the oil, aviation and shipping and logistics sectors including spells with Essar Oil, Peel Ports and Peel Airports.
UM Terminals recently put in place a new strategic growth plan to build on the substantial investment the business has made into upgrading its facilities and operations.
UM Terminals operates out of 8 terminals, strategically located across the UK, handling over 40 different products.
It currently has a capacity of over 300,000 cubic metres of bulk liquid storage, but the plan is to grow this to over 400,000 cubic metres.
Product solutions include vegetable oils, industrial, food and feed, chemical, fertiliser, fuels, biofuels and base oils.
Vic said: “I am delighted to be joining UM Terminals as commercial director. The business is at an exciting stage with an ambitious strategic growth plan. I have also been hugely impressed by the culture, customer-centric approach and can-do attitude of the company since I first joined as a consultant in November 2019.”
Bryan Davies, managing director of UM Terminals, said: “Vic’s appointment is an important one for our business and I look forward to continuing to work with him to create and develop a range of exciting customer partnerships.
“Our strategic plan includes maximising our UK capability, harnessing the assets of the wider UM Group and looking for potential acquisition targets that are a good fit.”
The company, which employs 63 people, rebranded from UM Storage to UM Terminals last year to better reflect the range of services the company offers its clients. It is part of the UM Group which has a distinguished history stretching back almost 100 years.
