It has been announced that Carol Kijac has been appointed Chief Sales Officer of SEKO Logistics. Kijac is expected to be based at the company’s headquarters in Chicago, US, and report to SEKO Logistics’ CEO, William J. Wascher.
The appointment comes after a year of growth for SEKO Logistics which in 2015 saw revenues for the U.S., UK and China exceed $525 million. It also comes eight months after SEKO selected New York-based Greenbriar Equity Group as its new equity partner to help implement a global growth strategy, both organically and through acquisitions.
Kijac spent over 17 years of her career with Expeditors, ultimately as Vice President Sales & Marketing, The Americas. Previous to joining Expeditors, she spent two years with UTi working in route development, regional sales and as a national accounts manager.
Prior to taking up her new post with SEKO Logistics, Kijacl was the Principal of Peripheral Vision LLC, providing sales and business process consulting for global service organisations. At SEKO she is expected to be responsible for global, local and strategic sales as well as marketing and sales training.
Commenting on the appointment, William J. Wascher said, “Carol’s track record, particularly at Expeditors, speaks for itself and we are delighted that she has chosen to lead our sales and marketing at such an exciting time for our global business. Her ‘solve versus sell’ approach is a perfect fit for SEKO’s business model. Using our service capability and unique, customizable technology, Carol will lead our client acquisition and development with the emphasis on building sustainable customer partnerships. She is highly respected in the industry and by customers for her ability to understand the complexities of the supply chain. She understands the language of the customer and will help us to further align SEKO and our great solutions to identify and deliver more value to our customers.”
