Los Angeles-based NEXT Trucking strengthens leadership team with new hires and plans to fill more than 50+ engineering, sales, operations, and marketing roles before end of 2018.
The expanded executive team includes:
- Bryan Jolliff, VP of Sales
- Jason Leu, VP of Product
- Chris Lankford, VP of Engineering
- Jennifer Chang, Director of Marketing
- Shane Van Der Waag, Director of Drayage and Intermodal
- Andres Castañeda, Director of Talent Recruitment
Prior to joining NEXT Trucking, Leu and Lankford had previously worked together at another startup for seven years. The company has also expanded its sales team, with talent from CH Robinson, Werner, Schneider National, and CEVA Logistics, and operations team with talent from JB Hunt, Expeditors, Mattel, and APL. New hires in product and engineering come from leading Southern California tech companies and startups.
CEO and Co-founder Lidia Yan said the hiring spree is to support its aggressive growth strategy. “We are seeing record numbers of carriers and shippers continue to embrace our trucker-centric online marketplace instead of relying on outdated processes that no longer serve them. This has resulted in accelerated growth in all areas of our business.” Yan continues, “We are thrilled to be part of the explosive technology growth in Southern California and demonstrate the high-quality talent and innovation that is happening in our local area. As we move into the second half of the year, it is critical to have the right talent in place to meet our targets for additional expansion and customer satisfaction.”
NEXT Trucking has a diverse culture reflective of the Southern California landscape. The company prides itself on a diverse and high energy workplace where collaboration and innovation thrive.
