Evidence suggests that if you want your son to grow up to be a third-party logistics executive, you can up the odds by naming him Scott Riddle.
We know of three Scott Riddles who fit the profile. First there's the newly promoted chief operating officer, warehousing and supply chain at Network Global Logistics (NGL), a Broomfield, Colo.-based provider of supply chain, logistics, and transportation services. Prior to joining NGL, he was vice president of sales and marketing for Daylight Transport, a non-asset-based transportation and logistics company.
The second Scott Riddle is co-founder of M33 Integrated Solutions, a third-party logistics company known for its proprietary transportation management software and its "co-management" team approach to helping clients manage their daily operations. He is also president of the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals' new Piedmont Triad Roundtable in Greensboro, N.C.
And Scott Riddle Number 3 is regional director of operations for LeSaint Logistics, a third-party logistics company that serves the chemical, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, paper, and retail industries. The Chicago-area 3PL operates more than two dozen facilities across the country and offers its own suite of logistics reporting and management software.
