David Bishop takes on new role

Gray Dawes Group Chief Operating Officer, Dave Bishop, has been appointed Managing Director of the TMC’s Netherlands-based operation following its acquisition of VCK Travel in January.

Former VCK Travel as Managing Director Ed Berrevoets has stepped down after deciding to retire after nearly 20 years of leading the company.

The decision has been carefully made in consultation with the Works Council and with Gray Dawes, said a statement.

Berrevoets will continue to support the company until he retires on June 30, 2024.

Bishop brings 25 years of executive experience in finance, sales, technology and commercial to his new role.

“We are immensely grateful to Ed for his dedication, vision, and leadership during his tenure,” said Bishop.

“I now look forward to a seamless transition of VCK into the Gray Dawes Group, a successful next phase for our Netherlands operation and an exciting future for our European clients.”

Gray Dawes Group CEO, Suzanne Horner, added: “Gray Dawes’ expansion into Europe is incredibly exciting. It represents the next step in our global growth plan and closes the circle on our unique service delivery strategy.

“Out of hours, for example, is simply no longer a thing for Gray Dawes; we are now ALWAYS ON – there for our clients, where they need us, when they need us. And with a shared technology platform across the entire Gray Dawes operation, our clients will enjoy a seamless personal service as we follow the sun around the globe from the UK and Europe to America, to Australia and back to Europe.”
