Seasoned technology executive to steer freight data and analytics firm Xeneta toward continued and sustainable growth
OSLO, Norway – April 26, 2022 --Xeneta, the leading ocean and air freight rate benchmarking and market analytics platform, has appointed its newest board member, Bridget Shea. Shea’s experience includes decades of leading sales and customer success teams for large technology brands such as Salesforce. She is also known for her advisory roles at data analytics firms Dataiku and Heap.
“Bridget is a highly accomplished tech leader with an extensive track record of success that makes her the perfect fit for our board of directors,” said Xeneta CEO Patrik Berglund. “We are thrilled to welcome a seasoned professional who has spent a significant amount of time delivering results for high-growth companies. Her expertise will be invaluable to our board.”
Bridget Shea has been a key contributor in leading multiple technology startups to acquisition, including TellApart (acquired by Twitter) and Datorama (acquired by Salesforce). She has held several global executive positions at multinational firms, and her peers commend her for her ability to elevate cross-functional teams and sustainably scale organizations. Shea currently serves as Chief Customer Officer at San Francisco-based firm MURAL.
“It is my pleasure to join Xeneta during such an exciting time for their business,” said Shea. “Embracing the digital transformation of the logistics industry is vital to shippers, freight forwarders, and carriers. The broken state of the global supply chain has led to significant disruptions, unreliable transport capacities, and incalculable replenishment times. It is a privilege to join the board of a disruptive corporation like Xeneta, a company that is leading the market to provide reliable and real-time data to logistics professionals.”
Xeneta remains one of the fastest-growing ocean and air freight rate benchmarking, market analytics platforms, and container shipping index. Recently, Xeneta bolstered its leadership team with the appointment of Vice President of Freight Forwarding Scott Irvine and Director of Sales Enablement Laura Finbow. Earlier this year, Xeneta acquired Amsterdam-based air freight data analysts CLIVE Data Services to provide businesses with the most timely and accurate insights into the global ocean and air freight markets.
Existing clients that currently rely on Xeneta’s crowd-sourced ocean and air freight rate benchmarking and market analytics platform include Nestle, Michelin, Volvo, General Mills, L’Oréal, and more.
