Samworth Brothers Distribution MD named as RHA chief executive

  • By Ashleigh Wight

Samworth Brothers Distribution MD Richard Burnett has been named the new chief executive of the Road Haulage Association (RHA), replacing the out-going Geoff Dunning.

Burnett joins the association from an operational background and has held numerous positions in large contract logistics companies, namely TDG, Hays Distribution and Wincanton.

He began his career in logistics at TDG in 1989. He has been responsible for the management of large contracts including HJ Heinz, Panasonic, GSK and Adidas and was responsible for driving forward the transformational change programme at Wincanton.

Since June 2012, he has headed up the own-account transport operation for food manufacturer Samworth Brothers.

Burnett said: “It’s an honour to represent the road haulage industry and to help shape road transport of the future. I’m looking forward to better understanding the priorities of the RHA’s members, how those needs are being met and what we can do to improve our services and performance.”

Current chief executive Geoff Dunning will retire in August. He has been with the association since 1987, when he took up the role of manager for the north eastern district.
