Choptank Transport is pleased to announce the appointment of Kimberly Pippin as Director of Information technology.
Pippin, a Baltimore native with over 20 years of IT experience, received her MBA from Loyola College. Her most recent position was with the Johns Hopkins University Central IT, a division of Hopkins that services both the University and the hospital.
"The transportation and logistics industry is technology-driven," said Marcia Wood, Vice President of Finance and head of Choptank's IT department. "It relies heavily on the ability to automate and streamline processes for shippers and carriers, so building a premier IT team is an important part of the equation. Having the right person to take on this key leadership role is exciting. We are thrilled to have Kim on board."
"Information technology is a fascinating field - everything you know changes daily," said Pippin. "Keeping up with the latest news and changes in the IT world requires a lot of reading and networking, which I love to do."
She added, "I look forward to applying the experience I've gained with a large enterprise like Hopkins, to a growing company like Choptank . There is a lot going on here and I am ready to get started.
"I also love the Eastern Shore. My drive to work is beautiful."
