To our Clients, the many colleagues and professionals I have had the pleasure and distinction of working with over the years, and to my family, friends and acquaintances:
I have toiled in this industry we call "global trade" for more than four decades now. It is time for me to take my leave and turn my interests and attention to family and other pursuits. As a self-described "customs groupie" I have truly enjoyed the intricacies of our business and the challenges presented. Our industry has rewarded me with opportunities I never thought would be possible. I've had a long enjoyable and most of all stimulating career. I am eternally grateful.
To aspiring customs brokers, freight forwarders, and compliance professionals; continue your pursuit of a career in this fascinating business; it will serve you well.
On December 31, 2017, Trade Innovations will officially discontinue operations. The last issue of the Trade Update was published in May of this year. If you are looking for contact information please reach out via LinkedIn or send me an e-mail before December 31 and I'll get you my new "retired" e-mail address.
Thank you for the pleasure of serving you, working with you and/or competing against you over the years. I am honored to have been a part of this industry and look forward to sitting on the fringes and observing from my chair at the lake.
CEO Trade Innovations, Inc.
