About Steve

My first business was a company I started while in College, distributing aftermarket racing computer systems for racing teams in the United States from Australian and Japanese manufacturers. Following this, I went on to get some real corporate experience in Logistics and Trucking in the middle of the peak of the recession at CH Robinson Worldwide. While at CH Robinson I acquired a great love and respect for trucking and logistics.

After CHRW I went on to work for a local freight forwarder (startup) in the LA area and led their domestic operations for two years. It was shortly after this position that the concept of a digital freight marketplace became a project that I started pursue as a side project. While starting the first attempt at a freight marketplace Bid-Freight on the side. I then switched to starting ComFreight on the side and went on to work for Gunn Jerkens as a Project Manager for their Web and Interactive apps for clients during the day. In 2016 I went full time with ComFreight, as it had grown to a point where it could fly under its own weight and it's been growing ever since the spring for 2016 with myself at the helm as the lead founder/ceo.
