Russ Felker, former Chief Technology Officer (CTO) of GlobalTranz, now joins Trinity Logistics as their CTO.
For the past 30 years, Russ has been leading technology changes, not only as a CTO, but also as a founder and technology advisor, creating technology solutions for business problems. He’s worked with companies both small and large, international and national. No matter the industry, he’s always had a passion for using technology to improve customer experience and help companies allow their people to focus less on clicks and more on service.
Russ says that Trinity’s core focus on company culture and people is one of his primary reasons for joining the company. He’s thrilled to begin working with Trinity to bring technology solutions that will create more ways for people to connect, build relationships, and improve efficiencies.
He finds his recent work at GlobalTranz and several other transportation companies has only heightened his interest in the industry and business.
“I’ve learned that in transportation, disruption and change is all around us,” says Russ. “I want to work with Trinity to put us right in the middle of it all. While that might sound scary to some, I want people to talk and know about Trinity as the company that brought positive, creative disruption to the industry. I know with this great opportunity, and the amazing people at Trinity, that we can do just that, together.”
“We are excited to have Russ’s creative and intuitive talent join our executive team and lead our technology into the future,” says Trinity’s President, Sarah Ruffcorn. “He has a passion for creating excellent experiences for shippers and carriers that will help us take the Trinity experience to the next level.”
We are looking forward to the insight and experience Russ will bring to the business in its dedication to best-in-class experiences and technology initiatives over the next several years.
