GlobalTranz Freight Agent Convention Presenter
Chris Scheid | Vice President of Pricing
Originally from Wisconsin I moved to Arizona in 2005 and graduated in 2009 from the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University with a Bachelors of Science in Management. Upon graduation I proceeded to work for Minnesota Thermal Science who is a manufacturer of advanced thermal insulated shipping containers. My primary responsibility was defining formal processes in each department for ISO 9001 certification. Upon moving back to Arizona I managed an ADT home security agency which is where I developed experience with an agency based sales model. During my employment there I came across GlobalTranz at the start of 2011 and joined the company that June. This June I will be starting my 5th year at GlobalTranz. During that time I have worked in several departments including Truckload Sales/Brokerage and our Expedited. Since then my primary roles have been Director of Operations and as of October 2014 Vice President of Pricing.
Last year’s convention held in Hollywood, FL was tremendously successful. It is a way not only to inspire GlobalTranz partners but to also reward them. This year the convention will be held at the Talking Stick Resort in Phoenix, AZ and looks to build on the momentum garnered from last year’s event.
The convention helps agents and brokers network person-to-person and to enjoy a weekend at a top Arizona resort. The GlobalTranz Annual Agent Convention is open to all GlobalTranz Agency Owners, brokers, and industry partners and will be held from March 2nd through the 4th.
