Terry Unrein has joined SEKO Logistics in the new role of Chief Commercial Officer, Americas, responsible for sales and revenue growth and Air and Ocean Product strategy in the Americas region.
His appointment represents a return to SEKO, where he spent over two years as Vice President Global Sales before joining Crane Worldwide Logistics in March 2015 as Regional Vice President, Pacific West.
In his new role he is based at SEKO’s global headquarters in Chicago, reporting directly to James Gagne, President of SEKO Logistics. Terry’s appointment comes as SEKO Logistics has achieved its highest-ever ranking in Inbound Logistics magazine’s highly-respected Top 100 3PLs listing, which evaluates the capabilities of more than 300 companies against the burgeoning global supply chain and logistics challenges and evolving outsourcing needs of its readers. SEKO Logistics, which was ranked 4th overall, was selected because its solutions solve specific logistics challenges and improve processes, and create a ripple effect of efficiencies across the entire value chain.
“We are delighted to welcome Terry back to SEKO in this expanded role, which places International Product ownership and accountability under Global Sales. He not only knows our network and partners in the United States and around the world, but also understands and appreciates our business model and value proposition starting from day one. He is going to be a key player in our further expansion and growth as we continue to innovate global forwarding, logistics and supply chain technology,” commented James Gagne.
Terry Unrein added: “With our bundled software and shipping solutions, SEKO really is making a significant and measurable difference to companies, their supply chains and to their overall performance. The most exciting aspect of this new role is the level of potential that exists for SEKO in the Americas and globally. We can raise the efficiency of a client’s supply chain to the next level, and we know companies want to talk to us about how we can support their strategic development, provide unprecedented visibility of their supply chain, support their moves into new markets and sales channels, and identify cost benefits.”
A former pro footballer with the San Francisco 49ers and the San Diego Chargers and is active with the NFL Alumni Association, Terry’s career in the logistics industry has also included senior roles in the U.S. and Asia with CEVA and Eagle Global Logistics.
