The annual Pros to Know award recognizes outstanding executives whose accomplishments offer a roadmap for other leaders looking to leverage the supply chain for competitive advantage.

The three Omni recipients have all played a critical role in successfully serving customers and providing valuable knowledge and experience to the company and across the industry:

  • Jim Blaeser defined Omni Logistics’ Procurement transformation, which combines a dedicated Business Analytics and Data Science team, a client-centric approach to developing integrated multimodal solutions, and a full scope of expense oversight across the organization. Additionally, Jim developed and still leads Omni Logistics’ Business Analytics and Data Science initiative. Jim has assembled a team that focuses on delivering the best possible service at highly competitive rates to Omni Logistics’ clients.
  • As the Director of International Business Services, Nate Nevens has helped Omni Logistics institutionalize systems and processes across 20 countries, including the United States. Nate works closely with carriers, shippers, and receivers to ensure that all parties are on the same page and that the shipping process is smooth and efficient. He works closely with the internal team at Omni Logistics to provide insights into market trends and the latest news across the industry.
  • Prior to his promotion to President of North American Operations, Andy Tribble focused on business transformation for Omni, identifying opportunities to leverage game-changing technologies that drive efficiencies, reduce costs, and drive the best outcomes for clients.

“We are truly honored to have three Omni Logistics executives awarded as 2023 ‘Pros to Know’ by Supply & Demand Chain Executive,” said JJ Schickel, CEO of Omni Logistics. “This is a testament to the Omni Logistics team’s overall vision to constantly innovate top-of-the-line services and solutions to keep the global supply chain moving. I am proud of their contributions to our company and culture and the leadership example they set as we transform the supply chain industry.”
