With the completion of this transaction, Dave Kulik, CEO of TNT Logistics North America  and group managing director of the global logistics division, will become CEO of the new company and resign from the TNT board of management.

TNT Logistics North America is based in Jacksonville, FL.

The sale to Apollo was announced on August 23. On Sept. 29 the shareholders' meeting approved the transaction and on Oct. 24 the European Commission granted clearance under the EU Merger Regulation.
