WCA Appoints Matthew West to Managing Director of Elite Global Logistics Network
For Immediate Release
Miami, Florida, August 2 2018 - Elite Global Logistics Network (EGLN) merged with WCA in October of 2017, giving its members access to WCA's top-tier member benefits and providing WCA members with even more global partnering options. As a result, WCA has appointed Matthew West, WCA director of North America, as EGLN's managing director.
"Appointing Matthew to managing director was a no-brainer," said Roy Stapleton, President and founder of EGLN - who celebrated 50 years in the logistics industry this past 1st July. "His longstanding experience as a WCA network leader is exactly what we need to expand the group and integrate into WCA's existing model."
Matthew West is an experienced director with more than six years of global logistics experience through leadership at WCA, the world's largest and most powerful grouping of independent freight forwards.
"What makes Matthew so valuable is his diversity of skills," said Roy. "He has sales experience, is great with the members and knows his way around WCA's robust database."
Matthew will work closely with Roy to provide un-matched member support to EGLN, WCA's newest affiliate network. Together they will work to grow the network while expanding the logistics might of the entire WCA group.
