CHICAGO, Jan. 12, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- New Age Transportation announced today that Seth Gable has been appointed President and Chief Operating Officer.
Founded by Carolyn Gable more than 28 years ago, New Age Transportation has grown from a small operation out of her home basement to a growing company of 24 employees with a combined 240 years of experience.
From the beginning, New Age differentiated itself by creating a culture where employees are treated like family and giving back to the community is equally important to everyone throughout the company. Collectively, employees provide more than 500 hours of community service per year.
"I'm proud to say that we're known as an honest company that stands behind our promise to provide incredible customer service and dependable delivery," said Gable. "I'm eager to not only continue our rich heritage, but to help steer New Age into the next era of transportation logistics."
Gable grew up in the family-run business, developing a strong work ethic recognized by peers and colleagues throughout his career. As the second oldest of seven siblings, Gable's sense of independence and ability to remain calm—yet stand out—among chaos that often happens in large families emerged early on. To this day, his competitive nature keeps him motivated to excel in every endeavor he undertakes.
After graduating from Southern Illinois University, Gable worked for New Age in various roles, including Sales, Marketing, and Account Management. From there, he held leadership positions at several agencies, including All Terrain and Mosaic Sales Solutions, where he specialized in strategy and new business development, marketing solutions, and creative direction. He spent his career working with some of world's most recognizable brands, including Bud Light, Stella Artois, Hornitos, Chase, Verizon Wireless, IndyCar, Bridgestone, PUMA, Craftsman, and Sony.
"Seth brings a customer-first mindset to everything he does, and his agency background has ingrained in him a results-driven attitude that is needed to be successful in this industry," said Paul Hoban, Vice President of Sales, New Age Transportation. "People trust us to get the job done; their business depends on it. At the end of the day, it's about keeping wheels moving 24/7 for our customers. Seth gets that."
New Age's team service approach, combined with a 95 percent on-time delivery, 24/7 operations, and 0.04% claims ratio, sets them apart from similar third-party logistics providers.
"We're in growth mode right now," said Gable. "We've got a great team in place and looking to bring more people on board to accomplish pretty aggressive goals. I can't wait to work with everyone here to make that happen."
Gable lives in Evanston, IL, with his wife, Amanda, and two children, Radley (Rad) and Aurora (Rory). When he's not at work, he can usually be found on a bicycle, which he rides for both enjoyment and, true to his competitive spirit, racing with a local Chicago team.
