Supply chain visibility platform FourKites has appointed Marc Boileau (pictured above) as its senior VP of sales and carrier operations, EMEA, as part of its European expansion.
Prior to joining FourKites, Mr Boileau held leadership and commercial roles at supply chain visibility companies, including project44 and Transporean.
“He said: “With the biggest global brands on its platform and the largest data network in the industry, FourKites is driving unmatched innovation and a truly global end-to-end visibility experience.
“One of my top priorities is to build our network of carriers — including small and mid-size — to ensure the value they get is in line with the value they bring. They are truly the unsung heroes in our ecosystem.”
Mathew Elenjickal, founder and CEO of FourKites, added: “FourKites is investing more than €45m in our European expansion this year, both through organic growth and acquisitions, and Marc joining us is the latest milestone in this strategy.
“He is an excellent fit with the team, and his deep knowledge of the industry will help to propel our European presence to new heights,” he said.
The company said that over the past 12 months it had seen 148% growth in shipments in the EMEA region, with over 850m miles tracked this year to date, and a near 100% increase in new or existing FourKites customers starting to track loads in EMEA. That had been accompanied by a 35%-plus growth in number of carriers tracking loads in Europe.
