Kerry Logistics Europe head dies at 54

Gary Wilcock.

HONG KONG — Gary Wilcock, managing director of Kerry Logistics Europe, passed away on June 21 after a short battle with cancer. He was 54.

Under Wilcock’s management, Kerry Logistics Network in Europe grew from a single business unit in the UK to an operation that now has a presence in 11 European countries.
 
In a statement, Kerry Logistics said Wilcock had more than 30 years of experience and was held in the highest regard in the industry, admired by his colleagues and beloved by his family and friends.
 
“His tireless dedication, his professionalism, his sterling leadership — and most important of all — his genuine warmth and love towards everyone will be sorely missed by the industry and this company in particular,” the Hong Kong-based logistics provider said.

According to Bloomberg, Wilcock joined Kerry Logistics Network in 2002. Much of his 30 years of experience in the logistics industry was working with the trade between the UK and Asia. He joined Trident International Ltd. as a management trainee in 1982 and served in a number of senior management roles in Trident International Ltd. prior to its acquisition by Kerry Logistics in 2002.
