SEKO appoints Mike Powell as new chief technology officer
Aug 31, 2018: US-based supply chain specialist SEKO Logistics has appointed Mike Powell as chief technology officer.
In his new role, he is tasked with taking the company’s technology suite to the next level to support customers’ global demand chains.
He previously spent four years with SEKO as vice president, Information Technology and as a member of its leadership team before leaving in 2010 to become co-founder of a cloud-based logistics software company used by global and domestic third-party logistics companies, trucking companies, and brokers. In 2014, he joined RIM Logistics as vice president, Technology Solutions, where he was responsible for crafting and executing the company’s corporate technology strategy and streamlining its operations to increase productivity.
“I’m excited to build on the existing technology solutions that are adding value in global trade management, delivering proven Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions with extensibility and exploring how blockchain and other disruptive technologies can be a catalyst to add value to the bundled, customisable suite of products we have ready to ‘plug and play’ today,” he said.
Mark White, SEKO’s Global chief commercial officer added: “Clients’ expectations of their transportation and logistics providers have gone up; as they should. This is setting a new standard for technology in our industry and will define who shippers do business with. Today, we do not think about supply chains, our technology solutions fit the needs of customers’ demand chains, where everything they do starts with the consumer and works back from there. Mike Powell not only brings a wealth of technology expertise to help us realise our ambitions, he is also very active in terms of client engagement and start-up experience. He understands the customer perspective and why everything we do must be friction-less to improve the way they do business.”
