Somerset monthly examines all facets of our business as well as assesses our strategic plan for growth. In our periodic evaluations of our long term strategy for continued growth Somerset has initiated several changes. The changes involve Brandon Ward and Samantha Whitesell. Recently, Brandon and Sam have been given new job titles and responsibilities.
Brandon Ward. Brandon has been promoted to Vice President of Operations for Somerset Logistics. Brandon has performed a myriad of functions for Somerset, first as an account/sales manager, agent recruiter and later as the Director of Business Development. Brandon is a TIA Certified Transportation Broker (CTB) and has been with the company for nearly 10 years. His new title and role describes his daily responsibilities as well as his future with Somerset. Brandon will be over all Somerset operations to include being involved in strategic growth initiatives. His importance to the organization is invaluable and we are excited for him to continue in his new position of leadership with Somerset Logistics.
Samantha Whitesell. Samantha will be assuming a new title as Support Specialist with Somerset. She has been with Somerset for 5 years, is a CTB, and fully understands all facets of the transportation industry. Sam will be the "go to" person for all our outside offices. She will provide oversight on Somerset's Onboarding initiative as well as provide support and assistance with carrier registration and relations. She will be involved in claims management, customer verification, agent recruitment as well as other necessary support functions. Lastly, Sam will be added to our after hours support team in being available to provide assistance outside of normal business hours. Sam has a deep drive and desire to help those who need assistance. She is excited about her new role and will be reaching out to all of you in the near future to introduce herself and ensure you know she is available if you need any assistance.
In closing, Somerset believes that both of these individuals are an important part of our company and future growth. Not only are their new titles and responsibilities deserving, they are necessary as our company continues to grow and evolve. They along with other various support staff from accounting to operational personnel strive to provide the best support possible for all our customers.
