Choptank Transport is proud to announce that Lloyd Thomas has been promoted from Sales Representative to Sales Manager.
Thomas, a Baltimore native, joined Choptank Transport in October, 2010 after working for several years with the downtown Baltimore sales training and consulting firm, Entrequest. Prior to this, Thomas ran his own mortgage brokerage company for twelve years.
Quickly learning the logistics business, Thomas excelled in the brokerage arena, significantly increasing sales and becoming a mentor to all those who work with him.
“We are very pleased to have Lloyd on our team – he is a natural leader,” says Vice President Steve Covey. “His professionalism, attitude, intelligence, and experience allow for a perfect fit in this leadership role.”
When asked how the mortgage brokerage business compares to a freight brokerage like Choptank Transport, Thomas commented, “The two are very similar. The skills sets necessary for success are the same. It's about delivering consistent value and providing a high level of service.”
Choptank Transport has grown significantly since Thomas joined the business three years ago, a big change from the mortgage business that collapsed several years earlier. “I am very impressed with the growth of this company. There is a vision, and a solid implementation plan. The management team at Choptank has delivered on all of the improvements and plans that were discussed with me when I started back in 2010. It's great to work for a company that delivers on their promises.”
With a newly expanded building and a large number of new hires, Thomas goes on to say, "I'm very excited about this promotion. I am confident that we can attract the necessary talent to continue to grow and I look forward to providing some of them with the leadership and guidance they will need to be successful.”
