The Big Shots
Our Quirky Queen Bee
Margie loves to travel, loves foreign films, loves to laugh, and … loves to list her lists of lists. While nobody can quite keep up with her, she finds a way to help us and inspire us with her warm intelligence and boundless energy. And, Margie makes herself available to all of her “family” and our great customers. Nobody else in the business can say the same.
Our Comedic Number Cruncher
Sure, he has a CPA with two decades of accounting and finance experience. And yes, he evaluates trends for yesterday, today and tomorrow. It makes sense to call Randy our “number cruncher.” But, my goodness, he is so much more. Here’s a guy addicted to softball, to comedic film, and well simply, to having some fun.
Our Transport Buddhist
You won’t find a freight strategist more Zen than the likes of Kobussen. An ex-city slicker, Matt now enjoys the riding-mower-country lifestyle with his wife and their two furry beasts in northern Pennsylvania. When he’s not crafting dynamic transportation solutions, this self-proclaimed data nerd enjoys going to see live music, libations of all kinds, and humor of the driest caliber. And when the industry goes awry, repeat after him, “OMMMM.”
Our Articulate Freight Fanatic
Robert loves to play music, to read literature, and, most of all, to hear himself talk (and talk…and talk). Fortunately, the words are passionate and full of informed freight concepts and out-of-the-container strategies. We don’t recommend that you play him in Scrabble, however… not only is he hard to beat, but he is a very sore loser when you win!
Our Hippy Tech Guru
Bob is all things IT. He has been for over a quarter of a century. He’s creative. He’s progressive. He’s remarkably passionate. He’s well-rounded. And, well, he’s also a little bit nuts. As if that weren’t enough, Bob is also a licensed Customs broker. And a Deadhead. And a hunter. End of story.
Our Supply Chain Nerd
Some call it compulsion, and some call it madness, but we’re pretty sure that it’s pure passion that drives Angela to stay just ahead of the industry’s cutting edge. She speaks at a pace that’s faster than air freight while still as deep as the ocean so you better pay close attention when Angela’s at the podium. When she steps off the stage, Angela is known for her love of travel and theatre, but what charms us most is that she is an accordion aficionado with a fantastic fastball (yes, really).
Our Humble, Yet Curious Compliance Director
Meet the current holder of the title “the longest boomerang” in Shapiro history. After a 20-year hiatus, this outdoorsy woman returned back to Shapiro to head our Compliance department. When she isn’t researching regulations, consulting with customers, or streamlining procedures, you can find Debbie taking a walk with her white German Shepherd or playing with her two granddaughters (or even plucking a song on her guitar). Shapiro is happy to have this quirky, perpetual student back in the family. Just please don’t ask her to talk about herself; she prefers to speak in Compliance tongues …. you know legal principles, obscure regulations, and rules, rules, rules!
