Kate Broome has joined Kuehne+Nagel’s UK National Leadership Team as Sustainability and Social Impact Director.

This new role was announced earlier in 2021 and is an important part of the business’ plans to accelerate sustainability goals and up the ante on inclusivity.  A key focus will be to expand upon goals to deliver progress to society.

Kate joins with a wealth of experience in the transport sector, including Network Rail and most recently, as Sustainability Director for FirstGroup plc, a market leader in sustainable public transport across the UK and North America.  Kate is especially passionate about sustainable mobility, championing climate change initiatives.

I’m delighted to welcome her as a valued member of our Leadership Team; where her experience and knowledge will help us take our next steps on our inclusive and sustainable journey.”
