Flexport has made three additions to its leadership team in the shape of Sudhanshu Priyadarshi as chief financial officer, Huey Lin as president of Asia, and Jeff Thomas as chief marketing officer.
The fast-expanding freight forwarder said they are all proven leaders in their fields and will accelerate Flexport’s global growth and position as the “leading technology-powered freight forwarder”.
Flexport chief executive officer and founder, Ryan Petersen said: “Freight forwarding is the circulatory system for global trade — but it runs on paper.
“This is a huge problem. Flexport is focused on transforming this $1 trillion industry, by bringing the information revolution to global trade and helping to unlock a new golden age for humanity.”
In the past year, Flexport has doubled its headcount to over 1,000, expanded its global presence to nine offices, strengthened high-value services including trade finance, insurance, and customs brokerage, and added key services such as air freight, trucking, and warehousing.
Flexport is the 8th fastest growing company in the US according to the Inc. 500 list and reached $237 million in sales in 2017 with 2018 on track for record sales growth.
