Hi, I’m Brian Byrd, Executive Vice President of Operations, at Transportation Impact.
am continually inspired by my colleagues and their passion to problem-solve for our clients. Our organization’s commitment to excellence has buoyed growth and innovation, and I am committed to helping ensure that Transportation Impact remains an industry leader in developing innovative technological solutions that help our clients to grow their companies.
Raised in Emerald Isle, NC, I started surfing at age ten, and at the age of 14 I won the East Coast Surfing Championships (VA Beach) in the Menehune Longboard division. I still enjoy getting out on the water whenever possible — which is one of the reasons I love working at TI! I also enjoy getting out for a round of golf, a game that I didn’t discover until college but love to play.
After graduating from UNC–Chapel Hill, Kenan-Flagler Business School with a BSBA I joined Schonfeld Securities as an Equity Trader, where over the next five years I gained valuable experience in finance. In late 2012 I brought that experience “home” when I started at TI as a Business Analyst in the Operations Department.
In the years since I’ve advanced through leadership roles including Parcel Audit and Parcel Negotiation services, and I now excel in the areas of supply-chain optimization and strategy to deliver cost reduction.
As much as I love my work, my greatest joy is my wife, Kadie, and our two daughters, Arabella and Juliet.
I am committed to helping ensure that Transportation Impact remains an industry leader in developing innovative technological solutions that help our clients to grow their companies.
