He will be based at Ellesmere Port, and will be part of the team looking at the company’s growth strategy.
The fuels sector has been identified as a significant area of growth for the leading logistics provider and Hughes’s appointment will support in aiding the development in this market.
With over 12 years’ experience in the fuels sector, Hughes is strengthening an existing high performing team that has been very successful in growing Suttons’ position in the fuels sector to date.
