JAS Worldwide is pleased to welcome our new JAS China CEO, Marco Civardi. An experienced executive, Marco hails innovation and leads with a dynamic approach.    

Marco began his career in international supply chain industry back in 1997. Thanks to his hard work and dedication, he successfully transitioned from working with a leading UK cargo airline to performing a sales role in Milano for a Swiss multinational logistics firm. In addition, he reached an intermediate level of proficiency in the Japanese language while performing in Japan first as Business Development Manager and, subsequently, as Country Head of Sales & Marketing.  

Marco’s professional background is centered in the Asia Pacific region, where he has held several leadership roles with global logistics firms driving results in mature economies and emerging markets.     

Motivated by his continuous improvement mindset, Marco studied for his MBA in Australia and became an Accredited Certified Coach in Singapore. In terms of leadership style, one of Marco’s key focuses is on nurturing local talents so that the newly acquired coaching skills are relevant to support the ‘’people make the difference’’ core value of JAS.  

His most recent assignment was in the capacity of Area Managing Director for a Danish logistic firm. After an initial accountability for Vietnam and Cambodia, Marco’s responsibility broadened as Myanmar and Laos were also added.  In 2019, after an internal strategic realignment, Marco was selected to lead the newly integrated division of the Danish firm with responsibilities over a team of 2,100 people, logistics footprint of 240,000 square meters and annual revenues in excess of USD $1.3 billion in 2020.   

Marco’s versatility and extensive experience in the Asia Pacific region make him ideal to lead JAS China. “I am confident we have found the right person to lead the China Group through the current market difficulties, but more so to transform and prepare the China Group to master the challenges of the years to come,” said Tomas Sonntag, Executive Vice President of JAS APAC. “With 23 years working in very different markets and organizations across Asia, Marco is a well-rounded leader who aims for excellence by pursuing new paths.”
