RAFT STRENGTHENS COMMERCIAL LEADERSHIP TEAM TO ACCELERATE GLOBAL EXPANSION


Industry experts Kurt Corman and Claudio Fiaoni to drive growth in Americas and EMEA, boosting global expansion with deep experience in logistics technology and supply chain solutions

London, UK, Tuesday 1st August 2023: Intelligent logistics platform Raft has appointed industry veteran Kurt Corman as Regional Vice President of Sales, Americas, and Claudio Fiaoni as Regional Vice President of Sales, EMEA, to support Raft’s accelerating global growth.

“Raft is expanding rapidly, and the appointments of Kurt and Claudio ensure we have the best expertise at the helm of our sales team to support our growth objectives,” said Mark Ketcham, Senior Vice President, Sales, Raft.

“They have a clear understanding of the industry and our users’ pain points, enabling our team to deliver high-value outcomes for our clients.”

Corman, an established business leader with over 25 years’ experience in logistics and technology, was previously in sales and leadership roles with technology platforms and companies such as Fourkites, Chain.io, and BDP International.

“Combining new technology, data and machine learning is completely transforming the freight forwarding industry, improving forwarders’ workflows across areas such as finance, customs, visibility, and emissions,” said Corman.

“In my new role, I look forward to using my experience within the industry to help forwarders and customs agents across the Americas drive efficiency and deliver more value to customers by using innovative digital solutions.”

Fiaoni started with Raft as Global Sales Director in 2022 and has over 25 years of software and commercial experience in senior roles across the logistics industry, at companies such as Oracle, 3Gtms, and E2open.

“The future success of the logistics industry is highly dependent on its ability to adapt and innovate, so it must therefore accept digitalization as the new norm, and embrace greater collaboration and integration across the supply chain,” said Fiaoni.

“The Raft platform is designed to offer an unparalleled user experience and leverage the latest technology our industry has to offer, and my existing experience within Raft puts me in good stead to support our clients and continue our expansion into Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.”

Raft currently has offices across the UK, Europe, India, and the US, and is in the process of expanding its presence in the Asia-Pacific region.
