REO Logistics, a 3rd Party Logistics Company headquartered in Huntington, WV that specializes in building comprehensive warehousing, transportation, and toll processing solutions for chemical and large industrial manufacturers, has just announced a strategic reorganization to better position the company to take advantage of growing opportunities in the US Manufacturing industry. Further, these changes have been designed to make the company more agile and better able to focus on its growth strategy.
REO Logistics has doubled in size in the last 3 years and has plans to double again in the next 3 years by honing in on developing its people, building its operational expertise, and investing on enhancements to its customer experience. The company is shaping its future by focusing on key areas of opportunity with an innovative network of cross-functional teams and task forces that have been designed to rapidly deploy to address key strategic priorities.
The new structure organizes all its operations under the leadership of Chief Operating Officer, Michael Carroll, and all sales, marketing and customer service efforts under Chief Business Development Officer Clayman Edwards. This reorganization converts REO’s company structure from a traditional service specific siloed structure to a functional structure designed to standardize and streamline the customer experience and yield operational efficiencies.
According to Rebecca Polan, Chief Executive Officer for REO, “We are focusing on long term profitable growth, homing in on the pieces of our business that we have targeted for further investment and expansion and increasing our emphasis on the customer experience we deliver.”
“We have spent the past two years focusing resources on the development of a company culture that is built around our core commitments to innovation, quality and integrity. This reorganization is the next logical step in our transformation. It will allow us to position ourselves to capitalize on our chemical toll processing and transportation expertise while we work to integrate new acquisitions,” says Carroll.
REO has added 100 new positions to the company over the past 18 months and has plans to add 15 more by the end of 2018. Named a “Five-Diamond Employer” by the West Virginia Chamber of Commerce, these newly announced changes represent an ongoing commitment to excellence.
