IPC: New CCO and CFO
International Post Corporation (IPC) has announced today that Gilad Tirosh has been appointed as IPC Chief Commercial and Financial Officer. He will be replacing Tom Day, who left IPC at the end of August.
The new Chief Commercial and Financial Officer will start his new function as of January 2022. He will oversee business planning, finances, market intelligence and sustainability as well as business relations with postal members and customers, regulatory services and intercompany pricing.
Holger Winklbauer, IPC Chief Executive Officer says: “Gilad brings solid experience in e-commerce, an in-depth understanding of the postal and logistics network and of the international postal organisations, as well as a strong knowledge of the Middle Eastern and Asian markets.”
Gilad previously worked as Chief Commercial Officer at Israel Post, responsible, among others, for all commercial and operational activities in e-commerce, CEP and trade, as well as international business and affairs. In this function, he established and managed partnerships with some of the largest players in the world, including Amazon, Alibaba, SHEIN, eBay, ASOS, NEXT and many more, and ensured Israel Post’s representation in global organisations.
Gilad Tirosh says: “E-commerce surges in all markets and soon will overcome traditional retail in some. During the pandemic, posts around the world showed resilience and flexibility as essential organisations for their national markets and played a major role in global trade. Today, the industry as a whole, and each of the posts individually, are confronted with challenges and opportunities and face the need to adjust and transform. I am happy to join IPC, a proven leader of the industry that supports posts all around the world in their transformation journey with knowledge, information and technology. I am looking forward to the challenges and opportunities and I am convinced that with the great team at IPC the company will continue to contribute positively to the industry.”
Prior to working at Israel Post, Tirosh has filled a number of functions in the logistics sector. He has been Vice President at Flying Cargo, the largest supply chain group in Israel with a large global presence. Prior to that, he managed two subsidiaries of Kislev Group, one of the largest freight forwarding groups in Israel. In that job, he also lived in Asia while further developing the business.
Starting 1 January 2022, the new IPC executive management team will consist of:
Chief Executive Officer: Holger Winklbauer
