CHARLOTTE, NC (September 20, 2018) – Bonded Logistics, a single-source provider of third-party logistics, announces that Ryan Haas has joined the company as Chief Financial Officer.
Haas, currently a member of Bonded’s Board of Advisors, previously served as CFO of the family-owned business from 2011-2013 after having been a consultant to the company for a number of years. He brings over 20 years of experience in accounting and finance with companies across a range of verticals that span from small, privately held operations to $1+ billion, publicly traded businesses. In his position as CFO, he is responsible for finance, risk management, treasury, market analysis and administrative functions.
“We’re extremely excited to have Ryan back at Bonded,” states Scott Carr, President of Bonded Logistics. “He has made a big impact as a member of our Board of Advisors, and the timing is right with the growth of the business to bring him back in a CFO role. He’s already very familiar with the company as a whole, and his industry knowledge and experience will help to make an immediate impact on our business.”
“There is so much opportunity for the company to continue its growth and expand its client offerings while staying faithful to its rich history, strong values, and truly unique organizational culture,” says Haas, a Certified Public Account (CPA) who holds twin degrees in Corporate Finance and Accounting from UNC Charlotte Belk College of Business as well as an MBA from Northeastern University. “My role will be to help Bonded continue to build the business while managing risk, identify strategic opportunities, and ensure that Bonded has all the resources (human and financial), tools, and assets that it needs to meet and exceed our clients’ expectations.”
Before rejoining Bonded, Haas led all aspects of corporate strategy including sales, marketing, manufacturing operations, logistics, HR and administration for Carrington Court, a furniture manufacturer in Hickory, NC from 2015 until 2018. Prior to that, he was Vice President of Finance for LiftOne, LLC, one of largest materials handling dealers in the Southeast, where he re-designed financial controls, simplified difficult processes, and built operational and financial decision support tools to help grow the company organically and through acquisitions.
“Ryan brings a whole new level of skillset to the company,” adds Dave Jesse, Chief Operating Officer at Bonded Logistics. “His vast financial expertise and leadership skills coupled with his knowledge of our systems and processes will help us better identify and execute growth opportunities. We’re glad to have him back as part of the Senior Management team.”
