Bolloré Logistics announced that Olivier Boccara has been appointed as CEO of Bolloré Logistics Asia Pacific.


In a statement, Bolloré  said Boccara will be based in Singapore taking over from Cyril Dumon and will pursue the development strategy implemented by his predecessor.


He also aims to launch new projects to drive the company's growth in several key sectors such as aeronautics, healthcare, luxury goods and cosmetics.


Boccara joined the Bolloré Group in 1994. During his career, he held various positions at SAGA, before becoming its CEO in 2007.


In 2016, he was promoted to CEO of Bolloré Logistics France.


More recently, Olivier was Global Chief Commercial Officer in charge of sales and marketing for Bolloré Logistics worldwide.


Bolloré noted that Boccara's impressive track record, spanning almost 30 years, has been marked by numerous professional achievements. He was notably involved in a number of major structuring projects, including the merger of the SAGA and SDV subsidiaries in 2015 and the acquisition in 2021 of a majority stake in Ovrsea, a start-up specialising in digital freight forwarding.


"I am delighted at the prospect of building on the solid foundations laid down by Cyril, who has greatly contributed to positioning Bolloré Logistics as a leading logistics player in the Asia-Pacific region," Boccara said.


"I have complete confidence in our existing teams and together we will strive to further develop the immense potential of this region and expand our operations to better serve our customers," the newly-appointed CEO of Bolloré Logistics Asia Pacific, added.
