Meet Jeff Ferguson
Meet Jeff Ferguson, National Sales Manager. We asked him some questions about his role at C&D Logistics.
Why C&D logistics?
I have personally followed the success of C&D Logistics for many years and admired the continued growth through a well thought out marketing strategy and commitment to the local community. Quite frankly C & D Logistics is the best-known logistics company in Vancouver because of the brand awareness. But most importantly you cannot grow unless you provide a quality service backed by excellent staff and IT.
I am lucky enough to know Bruce and Dana from both a personal and business perspective and this weighed heavy on my decision to join the team due to the ultimate respect and shared trust. It is incredible what Dana has done with the company and I am thrilled to bring my experience to the team.
