New CFO to Help Drive SEKO Logistics’ Global Growth Strategy Including Acquisitions
SEKO Logistics has appointed Matthew Brown as Chief Financial Officer to help deliver the next stage of its global growth strategy.
Matt brings to the role over 25 years’ experience in international business and financial management and is based at SEKO’s headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, reporting to President & CEO, James Gagne. He replaces Dan Sarna who retired at the beginning of August 2018.
Prior to joining SEKO, Matt served as President and Chief Financial Officer of technology company SUZOHAPP and was formerly Chief Financial Officer of SAE Towers in the power transmission industry. He has also previously served as Executive Vice President, Latin America for one of the world's largest mobile phone distributors, Brightpoint Inc., joining them after six years with Ernst & Young.
An expert in accounting, finance and business strategy, Matt will play a key role in the expansion of SEKO’s global network including acquisitions, partnerships and new services as it builds on strong growth generated by its multi award-winning transportation, logistics and fulfilment solutions. In the past month alone, SEKO has won leading industry awards for its 3PL and value-added warehousing solutions as well as for its technology, omni-channel logistics and white glove solutions, attention to detail and customer service in two independent surveys of 17,500 global buyers of logistics services.
“We wish Dan well in his retirement as he left a lasting impact and a secure financial future for SEKO as CFO for over 12 years. Matthew is a welcome addition to our executive team. Having lived and worked in Australia, Brazil and Mexico, he clearly understands the international market and what it takes to turn global challenges into new business opportunities. As we continue to grow all over the world and look at new investment and acquisition opportunities, he will provide the sound financial leadership and the experience we need to realize our goals as SEKO enters the next phase of our expansion beyond just organic growth,” James Gagne said.
