Rachel's career history includes working as Editor on the British Tourist Authority's official monthly guide London Planner. 1.2 million copies of the magazine were dispatched each year around the world. Previously, Rachel worked for 5 years at the Centre for International Briefing, running international assignment briefings for expatriates.

At the beginning of 1998, Rachel started working for a UK based Freight Forwarder Network where she organised and attended meetings in USA, Brazil, Italy, Vietnam, UK, Thailand, Netherlands and Russia. Rachel enjoyed this experience and in 2000 launched Universal Freight Organisation.

Rachel is supported at the PCN Head Office by a strong group of talented individuals drawn from a variety of transport and media backgrounds, all of whom very much contribute to the success of our organisations.

Sam has worked with Rachel since 2004 and manages membership recruitment, selecting companies who will become active Members. His current aim is to expand our global coverage filling our vacant territories and emerging markets. Sam also runs the News Desk, publishing online articles and managing the company social media including Twitter, LinkedIn and PCN Blog.

Rachel’s longest serving employee of over 18 years, Judith, helps manage the network on a day-to-day basis, assisted by Wendy, who joined the team in 2013. Together they ensure that all systems are up-to-date and are our first stop for any Member queries. In addition, they also manage the Annual Summit registration process and secure collaborations with the world’s top industry exhibitions.

Dale joined us in 2014 and is responsible for the production of our colourful Digital Newsletters (packed with Members news!) and all brochures, marketing and sales material available to Members.
