Seko Logistics has promoted vice president of marketing Brian Bourke to the new post of chief growth officer.
Mr Bourke will be responsible for the acceleration of Seko’s organic growth and driving demand-generation, revenue management and corporate marketing and communications initiatives.
In his new role, based at the company’s corporate headquarters in Chicago, Mr Bourke will work closely with Terry Unrein, chief commercial officer, and David Emerson, VP sales & marketing EMEA.
“This is a very important appointment in the natural evolution of our organisation,” said president James Gagne. “Under Brian’s leadership, we will accelerate our growth through new demand-generation programmes to achieve strong organic growth, alongside our continuing acquisition focus.
“Part of the responsibilities also include assuring good product and market fit for our clients with a strong focus on yield management. Brian is a proven and respected member of our executive team and, in his new role, he is tasked with building and leading a team to drive our growth to the next level.”
Mr Bourke, who speaks six languages, joined Seko in 2005, later going to Geodis Wilson as head of marketing communications. He returned to Seko in 2012.
“I couldn’t be taking this role at a more exciting time in Seko’s history,” he said. “We have our strongest-ever value proposition with the growth of our omni-channel, white glove and value-added freight forwarding services, as well as a unique suite of configurable technology.
“Combined with the knowledge and expertise of our people, we can deliver solutions that open new business horizons and new markets for customers. Our growth will come from accelerating our customers’ growth.”
