XPO Logistics, Inc. (NYSE: XPO) ha annunciato oggi che Maryclaire Hammond sarà il chief human resources officer di GXO Logistics, Inc, il previsto spin-off dell'attività logistica di XPO. Sarà responsabile dell'organizzazione delle risorse umane di GXO quando la separazione prevista sarà completata. Le priorità di Hammond includeranno un'intensa attenzione al coinvolgimento dei dipendenti, così come la promozione della diversità, dell'equità e dell'inclusione. La sua sede sarà presso l’headquarter di GXO a Londra.
Hammond è entrata in XPO nel 2019 come senior vice president, human resources Americhe ed Asia Pacifico e supervisiona gli aspetti occupazionali di oltre 22.000 dipendenti della divisione logistica di XPO. Ha oltre 20 anni di esperienza nell’ambito delle risorse umane con aziende Fortune 100, tra cui BP, dove ha ricoperto il ruolo di direttore delle risorse umane per BP Fuels, Nord America. In precedenza, è stata vicepresidente delle risorse umane per Honeywell Turbo Technologies in Svizzera e ha lavorato per 14 anni nel Regno Unito.
Hammond ha conseguito un Master in Business Administration presso l'Università di Portsmouth, un master in lingue e letterature straniere presso la Washington State University e una laurea in spagnolo e storia presso l'Hillsdale College.

Siamo molto lieti di aggiungerla al superbo comitato direttivo di GXO mentre prosegue il piano di spin-off".
Come precedentemente annunciato, XPO prevede di completare lo spin-off della sua attività logistica creando una società separata e quotata in borsa nella seconda metà del 2021. Come secondo più grande fornitore di contract logistics al mondo, GXO sarà ben posizionata per capitalizzare i principali venti favorevoli nel settore della logistica come l'espansione dell'e-commerce, la domanda crescente dei clienti per l'automazione delle attività logistiche e la tendenza fiorente verso l'outsourcing della supply chain. Le operazioni comprendono attualmente circa 890 sedi in 27 paesi.
