SEKO Logistics appoints new CFO

SEKO Logistics has appointed Matthew Brown as chief financial officer (CFO) to help deliver the next stage of its global growth strategy including acquisitions.

Brown brings to the role over 25 years’ experience in international business and financial management and is based at SEKO’s headquarters in Chicago, Illinois, reporting to president and chief executive officer, James Gagne. He replaces Dan Sarna who retired at the beginning of August 2018.

Prior to joining SEKO, Matt served as president and CFO of technology company SUZOHAPP and was formerly CFO of SAE Towers in the power transmission industry.

He has also previously served as executive vice president, Latin America for one of the world’s largest mobile phone distributors, Brightpoint, joining them after six years with Ernst & Young.

SEKO Logistics has earmarked Brown to play a key role in the expansion of SEKO’s global network including acquisitions, partnerships and new services as it builds on strong growth generated by its transportation, logistics and fulfilment solutions.

Gagne said: “We wish Dan well in his retirement as he left a lasting impact and a secure financial future for SEKO as CFO for over 12 years. Matthew is a welcome addition to our executive team. Having lived and worked in Australia, Brazil and Mexico, he clearly understands the international market and what it takes to turn global challenges into new business opportunities.

“As we continue to grow all over the world and look at new investment and acquisition opportunities, he will provide the sound financial leadership and the experience we need to realize our goals as SEKO enters the next phase of our expansion beyond just organic growth.”
