Meet the team

Amware is a flat organization where people are engaged in either doing the work or interacting with customers. We’re busy and we like it that way. You won’t see any middle managers sitting at desks writing CYA emails. We’re in business to serve. If you need to talk to someone on our senior leadership team, just pick up the phone or send us an email.

Our senior team consists mostly of “big company” logistics professionals who came to Amware to build something great, unencumbered by red tape. That team includes:
