For Immediate Release
MADISON, October 29, 2019 – SwanLeap, offering unprecedented supply chain visibility, speed and control as the fastest growing technology company in North America, announces the expansion of its executive team with the hire of former ProShip Vice President, John Berg, as Vice President of Sales and Marketing. Berg joins SwanLeap in the company’s season of explosive growth bringing over 30 years of experience in logistics technology.
“The leading companies in our industry are growing more and more nervous about becoming obsolete as an unprecedented number of challengers are entering the space. Consumers are asking for more than legacy solutions can deliver. Hiring John Berg is an example of how the market is changing and leaders are looking to expand their offering,” said SwanLeap CEO Brad Hollister. Recognized by Deloitte on the Technology Fast500, SwanLeap joined the ranks of Tesla and Google by taking the number one spot in 2018. “It is an exciting time in the life of our company as we begin growing our team to support consumer demand,” shared Hollister.
“Leading sales and marketing efforts in the logistics and technology space has been my expertise and passion for the past 30 years and it is clear to me that SwanLeap is the only company capable of delivering what customers are seeking,” shared Berg. In his 10 years with ProShip, Berg built the software services organization from one to 85 employees, developed a customer base from zero to over 400, representative of thousands of locations, and generated over $12 million in revenue annually when ProShip sold to NeoPost in 2014.
Berg earned a bachelor’s degree from Cardinal Stritch College and holds an MBA from Concordia University of Wisconsin. Passionate about building customer-centric processes, Berg is eager to contribute to the SwanLeap vision of a fully connected supply chain. “As SwanLeap begins to grow internationally, strengthening our leadership team isn’t only valuable, it is essential,” Hollister continued.
