SEKO Logistics has promoted Brian Bourke to the new post of chief growth officer as the company looks to accelerate its organic expansion.
In his new role, Bourke will drive SEKO’s demand generation, revenue management and corporate marketing and communications initiatives, working closely with Terry Unrein, chief commercial officer, David Emerson, vice president sales and marketing EMEA, and SEKO’s global sales teams.
James Gagne, president and chief executive, SEKO Logistics, said: “Under Brian’s leadership, we will accelerate our growth through new demand generation programmes to achieve strong organic growth, alongside our continuing acquisition focus.
“Part of the responsibilities also include assuring good product and market fit for our clients with a strong focus on yield management. Brian is a proven and respected member of our executive team and, in his new role, he is tasked with building and leading a team to drive our growth to the next level. Brian has also brought many unique solutions to our Clients that we have deployed at SEKO that are best-in-class.”
Bourke began his career with SEKO in 2005 after receiving his BA in Economics from the University of Wisconsin.
He later joined Geodis Wilson as head of marketing communications, before returning to SEKO in 2012 as vice president of marketing.
The company is in expansion mode and earlier this year announced a deal to takeover New York-based Air-City to expand its presence in the (US) westbound airfreight market.
In 2019, SEKO purchased Chicago-based customs brokerage and compliance consultancy, GoodShip International Inc.
