J.P. began his career with privately held Lambert Television, where he held various positions, including Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer.
Originally from New York, J.P. earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Southern California, and is actively involved in charities supporting autism research, aid to special needs families, and youth athletics.
“My focus will be on strengthening the financial backbone of the organization, enabling us to navigate challenges and capitalize on new opportunities in the dynamic markets we operate in,” said Hannan. “It is a privilege to be part of a company that values its employees, embraces diversity, and contributes positively to the community. I am excited to immerse myself in the culture and contribute to its continued success.”
In addition, Erin Cutri has been promoted to the role of Vice President of Finance – a position in which she will work alongside Hannan to drive the global integration of GCL’s financial platform.
Hannan is the latest in a series of new senior leadership appointments as GCL expands its global presence in the specialized logistics and freight forwarding industry across the live performance tour, sports and broadcasting, TV and film production, fine art, and automotive sectors.
