Cargomatic announced two appointments that it said will help the company continue to bring the “sharing economy” model to the local U.S. trucking industry.
Cargomatic co-founders Jonathan Kessler and Brett Parker named Chuck Oeleis as executive vice president of sales, responsible for building and managing all of Cargomatic’s sales efforts. Meaghan Diem joins Cargomatic as vice president of enterprise sales, assigned to focus on growing Cargomatic’s large-volume client base.
“I am thrilled that Chuck and Meaghan have joined the Cargomatic team. Their wealth of experience across the logistics, transportation, and supply chain sectors will greatly benefit Cargomatic as we enter our next stage of growth,” said Kessler.
According to the company, Oeleis has more than two decades of experience in the logistics world, including 18 years in various global executive positions with UPS. Most recently, he was a vice president for Carlile Transportation and later for CEVA Logistics, tasked with business growth and developing supply chain partnerships. Oeleis will report directly to Kessler and be based at Cargomatic headquarters in Los Angeles.
“Technology is fundamentally changing transportation. Cargomatic is leading that charge, and I look forward to helping the company achieve continued recognition in this growing space,” Oeleis said.
According to the company, Diem has more than 20 years of supply chain leadership experience across multiple industries, with a particular focus on building customer-specific logistics solutions. She served as director of business development for XPO (previously Menlo Worldwide) and most recently was vice president of the less-than-truckload business unit of Coyote Logistics. Diem will report to Oeleis and be based in Chicago.
“Cargomatic’s transportation transparency, coupled with the sharing economy model, is redefining what customers expect from their freight experience, and I am excited to be involved with this innovative company," Diem said.
