ProShip is excited to announce the addition of Bill Schroeder and Lisa Blade to our team.
ProShip is thrilled to announce the arrival of two industry experts to our team: Bill Schroeder, our new Director of Strategic Alliances and Lisa Blade, our new Carrier Liaison. Bill joins us from FedEx and will be a driving force tasked with rejuvenating our Channel Partnership strategy. Lisa joins us from DHL and will be a key player in managing new and existing carrier relationships.
“Our core mission at ProShip is to provide value to our customers – our partnerships and deep knowledge of carrier services is a huge part of that value,” said Matt Mullen, Senior Vice President and Managing Director of ProShip, Inc. “We are already the most knowledgeable team in the industry, and by adding Bill and Lisa to our team we are providing decades of proven shipping technology expertise to our customers and partners. This will help improve their business and create competitive advantage,” he added.
Lisa is a creative technical expert with more than 20 years of diverse experience in IT, and 13 years in the shipping and logistics industry. She brings with her a strong background in client support and vendor relationship-building. Prior to joining our team, Lisa led the vendor relationship team at DHL Express for 7 years. She is excited to now work on the other side of the fence as a carrier relationship liaison here at ProShip.
“For many years I have wanted to work for ProShip. I was drawn to the company in part from the ease of working with its employees, the high level of professionalism they carried and the quality of their product. Once hired, I saw so many more reasons to justify the move; including actions to reduce non-recyclables in shipping waste, and the constant push for sustainability in almost every aspect of how the company does business – I knew I’d made the right decision. I hope that in my role as the new carrier liaison, I can help ProShip to build stronger bonds with the carriers they already support and raise the bar even further on our compliance and customer success.”
Bill comes from 20 years of experience with FedEx working in the logistics technology space where he focused on the innovation and optimization of technology processes for customers large and small.
He has a strong track record building high performance teams and helping customers solve complex logistics problems with new creative solutions. Bill is an intuitive thinker who has a proven history of building strong customer and employee relationships, as well as developing meaningful cross-organizational partnerships focused on delivering high quality results to customers.
"I was initially drawn to ProShip's strong focus on providing customers with the absolute best products and service available to them. Even if it isn’t available yet, ProShip makes it a mission to create a solution for their unique challenges. Once onboarded I was really impressed by the culture of teamwork and innovation that is fostered here, and the positivity that springs from that customer focus was very attractive to me,” said Bill. “As the Director of Strategic Partnerships, I’ll be focused on forming strategic relationships that enable ProShip to continue to deliver seamless, innovative solutions to our customers.”
ProShip has hired these two dynamic players to join our team to further expand on our effort to provide the best and most consistent service to our customers. The talents and passion that these two new employees bring to the table are worth being excited about – so please join us in welcoming Lisa and Bill to the ProShip team!
