Armada, a global company that creates innovative, fully integrated supply chain solutions, is proud to announce its CEO, John Burke, as the winner of the 2014 EY Entrepreneur Of The Year™
Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia region in the Logistics and Distribution category. Burke, who was one of nine finalists and more than 60 nominees in the region, will go on to compete nationally in Palm Springs, California on November 15, 2014.
“It is an honor to be recognized,” said Burke. “The credit goes to the people at Armada who, over the years, have succeeded in providing expert logistic solutions to the marketplace. Our efforts to drive change, improve efficiencies and enable increased competitiveness for our clients are the hallmarks of our success. We have a truly special organization, and this award could not have been made possible without everyone’s valuable contributions.”
Burke, who earned a business degree from The Pennsylvania State University and an MBA at Carnegie Mellon University, has more than 20 years of experience in the supply chain industry. He joined Armada in 1992, and over the years, he and his team grew the company into one of the top supply chain industry leaders. Its business model is based on a deep-rooted commitment to provide extraordinary service to clients by offering outsourced logistic solutions that create smaller, smarter networks.
Armada is ranked as one of Pittsburgh’s largest private companies and appeared twice on lists of best places to work. The company places strong value on employee retention, continuing personnel growth, and an overall focus on clients, co-workers, and culture – which are not only guiding principles but also drivers and motivators in the company’s success.
