Welcome Jared

April 2, 2024

We are thrilled to welcome Jared Taylor as the new Chief Revenue Officer at Manifold. Jared is not just a renowned figure in the logistics and transportation industry, but also a respected former colleague with whom I had the pleasure of working closely at Convoy. Together, we focused on bringing large carriers to the platform, a collaboration that brought some of the early insights that led to Manifold.

Jared brings with him decades of experience and a stellar track record that includes transformative roles at notable companies like Convoy Inc, MercuryGate International, and Knight-Swift Transportation. Throughout his career, Jared has demonstrated a profound ability to lead organizations from the ground up, turning zero-revenue operations into multi-million dollar entities. Notably, he led teams that propelled company revenues from $0 to over $225 million in just four years.

At Convoy Inc, as the Director of Carrier Programs, Jared was instrumental in developing and implementing supply bid strategies that generated significant revenue opportunities. He also excelled in carrier diversification, bringing in partners with revenues exceeding $25 million, which massively contributed to the company's growth.

Beyond his professional expertise, Jared is a passionate technology enthusiast who has spearheaded technology adoption initiatives and developed competitive platforms tailored to transportation needs. He co-founded The Freight Advisors, a consulting firm that enhances logistics operations through leadership, training, and technology.

On a personal note, Jared is a devoted husband and father to two girls, roles he prizes above all others. His commitment to creating and nurturing a culture of accountability and excellence resonates deeply with our core values at Manifold.

As we strive to simplify and enhance how carriers find and manage spot freight opportunities, Jared's leadership and innovative approach are invaluable. We are excited about the future and the pivotal role Jared will play in our journey towards transforming the logistics landscape.

Please join me in warmly welcoming Jared Taylor to the Manifold family. Here’s to new beginnings and great successes together!
