CONOVER, NC – Specialized furniture carrier and international 3PL provider Zenith Global Logistics has hired Michael Beaver for the position of Senior Vice President, Home Delivery, a newly created position reporting directly to Jack Hawn, President and CEO.
Beaver will be responsible for leading the development and management of Zenith Global’s white glove home delivery service, which is fully integrated with its national line haul network. “We’ve grown our home delivery fleet and hub network significantly over the past several years, and because of this it was time to add additional strategic leadership to our team,” explains Jack Hawn, President and CEO. “Michael has a proven track record of driving growth and innovation in logistics operations, systems, and business development, and his more than 20 years of experience will enable us to take the next important steps as we continue to expand our asset-based home delivery model.”
“There’s nothing more personal in the shopping experience than stepping foot into a customer’s home,” said Beaver. “Zenith Global Logistics has built a reputation for providing final-mile service that meets—and often exceeds—their customers’ expectations. They understand that when a Zenith truck pulls up to a consumer’s home, their company becomes an extension of their customer’s. I look forward to playing an integral role in helping the team at Zenith continue to develop and advance their home delivery services for home furnishings retailers.”
Beaver most recently served as Senior Director of Business Development for Exel Logistics, where he provided strategic leadership to the company’s key account management team and supported the growth of complex, high-impact retail supply chain solutions. Prior to this role, Beaver held senior executive logistics and operations posts at Harris Wholesale, Inc., Reichhold Corp., Ernst & Young LLP, and Ashland Chemical. He earned a B.S. in industrial distribution engineering from Clarkson University and an M.B.A. from the University of South Florida.
