Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics announced changes on Tuesday in its North American management team.
The Scandinavia-based roll-on, roll-off specialist named John Felitto president and CEO of WWL Vehicle Services Americas. Felitto, who joined the company more than 10 years ago, has been operating in this role as well as head of commercial for the Newark, N.J.-based Americas region since late 2010.
Felitto will be responsible for WWL’s North American supply chain management and land-based technical service operations, including a network of 21 plant- and port-based processing, storage and distribution facilities serving major automotive manufacturers.
To replace Felitto, Richard Heintzelman is rejoining WWL as executive vice president and head of commercial for Region Americas.
Heintzelman will be responsible for leading all commercial development and customer relations activities in North and South America. He was most recently vice president and general manager for the Middle East at American Roll-on Roll-off Carrier. Prior to that, Heintzelman spent more than eight years in Tokyo at WWL Asia as head of commercial as well as president of the region.
