Hi, I’m Keith Byrd, Co-Founder and Partner at Transportation Impact.
t feels great to have a CFO tell you thanks when you’ve saved their company millions — which creates more jobs, which stimulates the economy, which helps keep this country great! This is why I am excited by what we do and why the work I do each day doesn’t feel like work. And at TI, I love seeing our people develop into the future leaders of the company and in the community. From the very beginning, I have felt that it is important to do what you say you are going to do — and so we do!
Of course, bringing experience to the table is important too. I worked in the parcel industry for 20 years with UPS®, eventually serving as senior sales manager for both Carolinas. While there, I earned many accolades, and envisioned starting my own company in which I could use my experience to help companies and people like the CFOs who thank me for saving them millions.
In my pre-logistics industry life, I served in the Marine Corps before joining the North Carolina Highway Patrol, and then while at UPS, I earned a BSc in Business at La Salle University. All of which imbued me with the courage and determination and fortitude to not quit until the game is won! And the game is getting our clients the biggest savings and the best logistics agreements that are possible to get.
