GRAB YOUR COFFEE OR COCKTAIL
It’s Sippin’ and Shippin Time
In the world of logistics and supply chain management, 3PLs are among the biggest movers and shakers – and also the most invisible. Yet their unique behind-the-scenes positioning gives them in-depth insights into the opportunities and challenges facing retailers and digitally-native brands. In an evolving industry landscape characterized by rapid technological advances and shifting buying habits, their expertise goes far beyond simple fulfillment; they get a front-row seat to the decisions that lead to success – or failure.
We’re here to unpack these experiences, helping both emerging and established entrepreneurs and brands to navigate the twists and turns of logistics management. Assisted by top industry insiders in casual conversation, we’ll be shedding some light on all of those areas that spark deliberation and debate: the do’s and don’ts, the best practices, the biggest industry trends, of most importantly of all, what motivates both brands and consumers to seek out only the best experiences.
Senior Vice President, Business Development
Raised in the 3PL world (just ask him and he’ll tell you that he got his start at age 11!), Brian has an extensive background in fulfillment operations including just enough IT knowledge to be dangerous. As a former 3PL owner, his entrepreneurial approach thrives on change and taking paths not yet traveled. He’ll be the first to tell you, one of the most rewarding aspects of his role is working closely with brands and companies to understand their challenges and help design the right solution to achieve their goals.
Brian is born and raised in New Jersey and a is proud alum of Rutgers University, where he met his wife, a middle school Principal. He has 2 children, a son, currently a junior at Indiana University, and daughter, a senior in high school. Self-described as lacking work-life balance (mostly out of love for what he does), when not working, enjoys working out, playing (shitty) golf, drinking good tequila and watching sports (a lifelong self-loathing Mets and Jets fan).
Business Development Manager
As a true sales hunter Caitlin lives for the chase…but also can’t help herself from chatting it up with some farmers along the way!! Joining PLG in 2018, Caitlin came with a background of highly effective consultative selling and quickly picked up the ins and outs of the 3PL world. From chasing brands up and down social media platforms to good old fashion cold calling she never hesitates to engage in meaningful conversations and act as the voice not only of the customer but of our industry.
A team player and advocate for collaboration, Caitlin grew up in Soccer Town USA (Kearny, NJ) and played collegiate soccer at Saint Peter’s University. She is the dog-mom of two amazing Yorkie puppies (they are actually 12 and not puppies at all, but shhh!! don’t tell her that), loves grillin’ and chillin’ (only second to sippin’ and shippin’, of course), and enjoys the months that allow her to be beachside with her friends and family.
