Greg Filmer – Express Divisional Manager

Greg is based at Swift's Newbury Head Office and lives in Thatcham, Berkshire. Formally from the hospitality Industry, he joined the Group in 2002 and has progressed through both Domestic and International operations and control.

Joining the Commercial Department in 2008, Greg has proved highly effective at understanding clients businesses and their commercial needs and adapting services to match. He was appointed Group Sales Manager - Express Division in 2011. These years (and significant success) in sales offer Greg a unique in-sight into understanding "What the Customer Wants"; the very best and most appropriate grounding for this, the Top Job in Express, to which he was promoted in 2014

Greg is known (some might say legendary) within the business for his infectious enthusiasm and positive demeanour; always on the phone or responding to emails, he is truly devoted to his clients, his Team and getting the job done....Right.......First Time.

Outside of work Greg is a keen runner, and will often be found pounding the streets of West Berkshire preparing for his next Marathon (eleven and counting). When he finally finds time to relax he enjoys spending with his family and wide range of friends.

Michael Spence – Head of Overnight Logistics

Based at Swift’s Newbury HQ, Michael has spent his entire working life within the Logistics and Distribution Industries, holding numerous operational and client focused roles within the UK Market. This career has seen him gain a vast amount of experience specific to the Fulfilment and Integrated Chain Supply Solutions sectors. After a successful period running a logistics business based in Kent, he returned to Berkshire to join Swift’s Commercial Team in 2012.

A demanding and self-effacing personality, Michael is driven by a competitive desire to find solutions to even the most complex logistical challenge. The experience of running his own business has left Michael with a unique focus and commercial understanding of the importance of delivering solutions which consider not only the logistical needs, but also financial and cultural impact on his clients businesses.

Michael’s competitive nature has been widely recorded in the “black books” of many Berkshire referees where, in his youth, he played football & cricket to a semi-professional level. These days he prefers to restrict his sporting activities to the Golf Course, where he is renowned as one of the best dressed bandits!
