David Holley, who led the U.S. expansion of marine logistics provider Peters & May, was named CEO of the U.K.-based Peters & May group of companies.

Holley will have overall responsibility for Peters & May Ltd., Peters & May USA Inc. and Peters & May Global Logistics Ltd.

Anna Colavitti was promoted to take over the general manager responsibilities.

In 2008, Holley came to Chicago from the U.K. office as managing director of Peters & May USA Inc. He helped secure contracts with boatbuilders, including Larson Boats, PBH Marine Group, Correct Craft and Viking Yacht Co. He also was the driving force behind Peters & May Racing.

"I am pleased to have earned the opportunity to take on this new global role, and I look forward to using the knowledge attained from my previous roles in the USA, Spain, UAE. and U.K. offices to continue our growth and explore new opportunities to keep the Peters & May Group as the leading niche transportation provider," Holley said in a statement.

Colavitti has 16 years of experience in the logistics sector. She previously worked at Sentek International and was general manager/operations manager at Air & Ocean Shipping Inc., which was subsequently acquired and renamed Peters & May USA Inc.

She rose rapidly from operations director to general manager. She also will oversee the company's Fort Lauderdale office.
