Feb 01, 2017: OL International has promoted Carrie Murphy to the position of chief commercial officer of OL USA (formerly TTS Worldwide). She will continue to be based out of the Chicago office.
In her new role, Carrie will be responsible for leading commercial strategy, marketing, product development, advancing operational excellence, and aligning company growth with a focus on global business, said the company through a statement.
Murphy joined TTS Worldwide in 2012, playing a key part in the growth of the company and its rebranding as OL USA, which becomes effective February 1.
A veteran of the logistics industry, Murphy started her career in 1990 at Radix International, rising quickly, and in 1995 managed the NVOCC transition when Radix and Votainer were purchased by AEI International, which would later become part of DHL Global Forwarding.
Murphy next joined Ocean World Lines where she served in many capacities – most recently vice president of the Midwest.
The Chicago office she launched with a staff of two grew to over forty professionals and $65 million in sales. Additionally, she was responsible for the negotiation of all steamship contracts for Asia-US transport and was instrumental in the development of OWL360, the company’s first visibility tracking software. She joined TTS in 2012, opening its Chicago office and substantially growing its international business.
“Carrie has been a force in this business for over two decades, and her drive, knowledge, and expertise is critical to the continued growth of OL USA,” said Alan Baer, president of OL USA, as well as its parent company OL International.
“OL USA, as a part of our fully-integrated global network of NVOCC businesses, is growing quickly. It is a structure which continuously leverages local knowledge, global expertise, and industry-leading technology to serve our clients all over the world. I couldn’t be more thrilled to grow with it,” said Murphy.
