LONG BEACH, Calif., July 18, 2019 (Newswire.com) - Following a $35 million Series B funding round in late 2018, Cargomatic, Inc. has been busy filling out the C-Suite with a talented and experienced team designed to spur innovation and growth for the local freight-matching marketplace.
“Building a successful company always starts with the foundation, and after our Series B funding last year, my primary focus has been to find the best talent I could and bring them to Cargomatic. With our foundation now in place, we are poised to be a leading provider of local LTL, drayage and white-glove services in freight markets throughout the United States and beyond,” said Richard Gerstein, the company’s chief executive.
First to join the new team was Ed Reginelli as Chief Financial Officer. Ed brings over 25 years of experience, managing all aspects of financial accounting, controls, analysis, operations and reporting in complex corporate environments. Before joining Cargomatic, Ed was Chief Financial Officer and a member of the Board of Directors at RhythmOne plc, a digital advertising technology company.
The second addition to Cargomatic’s team was Chris Oliver as Chief Marketing Officer. Chris brings more than 20 years of experience leading large and small businesses into and through tremendous growth phases. Prior to Cargomatic, Chris led growth efforts for several well-known transportation technology brands, including Trucker Path, Zonar, and PrePass.
The third addition was Ann Mao as Chief Legal Officer. Prior to joining Cargomatic, Ann held various senior roles at McKesson Corporation, a global leader in healthcare supply chain management solutions, retail pharmacy, healthcare technology and specialty care.
The next addition to the team was Sunil Sharma as Chief Product & Technology Officer. Sunil’s breadth of expertise spans platforms, applications, and online marketplaces. Previously, he held product management leadership positions with industry leaders such as Jasper Technologies (acquired by Cisco), Yahoo!, GT Nexus (acquired by Infor), and Manhattan Associates.
The final new addition to the team is Marc Levin as Chief Commercial Officer. Marc is a strategist and business growth executive with over 25 years of experience in sales, strategy development and innovation covering the end-to-end supply chain and logistics solutions.
