In regards to the attached press release about SCL Group acquiring KFS, Sam and I have retained an interest in the new company and will continue to create synergies between the two “Sister Companies”. Our new partner and majority shareholder in SCL Group is Bruce Galbraith. Bruce is a successful businessman in the International Logistics space and someone I respect. His previous company (Trans Trade) was once considered one of the top 10 “Best Place to Work in Texas” for three years in a row.
The new CEO of KFS is Mark Irwin. He has extensive executive experience in the International Freight Forwarding business. As head of US operations for Savino Del Bene, Mark helped build that company to revenues of over 300 Million employing over 350 logistic professionals.
Mark plans on meeting with our sales and operations team in the next few weeks to introduce himself and share his International expertise. It is our intent that the collaboration between JBS and KFS will provide new opportunities and tremendous benefits for our customers.
