LaserShip is excited to announce Brett Bissell as LaserShip’s new Chief Executive Officer.
Bissell succeeds Blake Averill, who, as one of the Company’s co-founders, was instrumental in shaping and growing our company to be a leading regional e-commerce parcel carrier. Averill will continue to serve as a Board member. Bissell will be based in our Vienna, Virginia headquarters.
“Brett brings a wealth of experience in managing large, high growth companies,” says Mr. Averill. Prior to joining LaserShip, Mr. Bissell was responsible for CEVA’s multibillion-dollar Contract Logistics business, which included warehousing, manufacturing support, inbound/outbound distribution and e-commerce fulfillment.
“I am excited to hand the reins over to Brett as his experiences over the course of his accomplished career make him uniquely qualified to build on LaserShip’s market-leading position and navigate the Company through this next period of continued high growth.” Added Tom Escott, Chairman, “We appreciate all of Blake’s contributions to the business over the course of his thirty-three year tenure. Looking forward, we are excited for what the future holds with Brett as CEO.”
Bissell possesses a track record of developing world class operational processes that deliver excellence to customers. “The e-commerce space is a dynamic one and, as we grow, our emphasis will be on continuing to innovate our offering to provide best-in-class services to support our shipper partners and their customers,” he said. A key element in that endeavor, according to Mr. Bissell, is “continuing to build a positive culture and great team environment that people want to join.”
