Combi Lift adds Smith-Garcia to its Houston team
Project logistics provider and part of the Harren Group, Combi Lift, has made a new addition to its office in Houston. The company has named Esmeralda Smith-Garcia as Senior Director, Business Development.
Smith-Garcia brings over 20 years of experience in project cargo and logistics solutions, in the engineering contractor, international oil companies, fabricators and original equipment manufacturers market.
Commenting on the new appointment, Klaus Hilpert, CEO of Combi Lift Group, said, “Esmeralda’s experience and reputation in the industry will be a great asset to our team. With Grant Wattman, CEO of Combi Lift Projects, she will help define and implement our strategic plans and drive growth and operational excellence.”
“I am excited to be joining this rapidly growing, global niche, project forwarder and a member of the Harren Group. Their capabilities and my experience will help contribute to our joint success,” Smith-Garcia said.
Combi Lift opened its new office in one of the main project capitals in the world, Houston, near the start of last year. Grant Wattman is heading the office.
Speaking at the time, Hilpert said, “Houston is the perfect location in the USA. It is one of the main project capitals in the world. Solutions are becoming more complex and project risk profiles are increasing. Clients are looking for trusted and globally connected partners who can leverage their assets and drive risk sharing throughout project delivery. For all of these reasons, opening the Houston office was therefore the logical next step for us.”
