"I like this company because of the family environment and the fact that you can grow as much as you want, if you put forth the effort"- Kathy McKoy
Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) June 26, 2012
Samuel Shapiro & Company, Inc., a 97-year old logistics leader, recently announced the promotion of Kathy McKoy, Baltimore Branch Manager, to Regional Manager of the Mid-Atlantic Region.
Kathy McKoy started with Shapiro in 1998 as an account coordinator and quickly moved through the ranks. In 2000, she was promoted to Team Leader/Import Manager where she managed the workflow and customs brokerage of a number of account coordinators. In 2006, Kathy left imports and broadened her scope to manage Shapiro’s Transportation Department. After three years of managing international freight contracts and transit, Kathy moved back into imports to become Branch Manager of Shapiro’s Baltimore office, its headquarters. Now, after just three more years and a total of fourteen with Shapiro, she has been promoted to Regional Manager, Mid-Atlantic Region, and will be responsible for both the Baltimore, MD, and Dulles, VA, offices.
“I like this company because of the family environment and the fact that you can grow as much as you want, if you put forth the effort,” noted McKoy. “You are recognized for your accomplishments, but given support and encouragement to make them possible.”
“We are very fortunate to have someone of such talent and energy in this capacity,” noted Margie Shapiro, Samuel Shapiro & Company’s President and CEO. “In addition to her vast knowledge of the forwarding industry, Kathy’s strong focus on customer service and employee development positions us well to further build our Mid-Atlantic operations.”
