Lisa Bruno brings 15+ years of transportation logistics experience to the podcast. She started her career at Strive Logistics in 2005 and, being the 12th employee, saw an opportunity to make an impact at a young company. She started on the customer operations and account management side of the business running point on PepsiCo’s Quaker Oats account among others. 2012 started her Director-level experience wearing many hats to help propel Strive to success: contributed in developing Strive’s proprietary TMS, led training efforts of new hires and the latest TMS functionality and later in her career was in more of a “fixer” role working with stakeholders to solve process & operational bottlenecks. Once Strive was acquired by Redwood Logistics in 2019, Lisa played an integral role in getting Redwood’s customer-facing department up to speed on Strive’s TMS. She earned her PMP certification in 2020 and most recently joined the CarrierDirect team as an Industry Consultant.
