Purolator International, a provider of U.S.-Canada logistics services and subsidiary of Canadian logistics provider Purolator Inc., has named Lanse Shelton, a 10-year veteran of the logistics industry with more than a decade of experience in sales, as the new selling branch manager for San Francisco and surrounding Bay Area territories.
In his new role, Shelton will work to establish, develop and expand the new San Francisco territory business for Purolator International, reporting to Western District Manager Sean Kelly. Shelton will be responsible for the day-to-day operations and overall business performance within the branch territory, including sales, customer acquisition, staff management and training, as well as strategic planning.
“Lanse joins our team with extensive, skilled senior-level sales and logistics experience, including 10 years at UPS, where he consistently met and exceeded yearly sales goals and helped develop long-term client relationships, generating loyalty and trust, above and beyond the traditional sales relationship,” Kelly says. “I am confident that he will be a great asset to the Purolator team and continue to grow our business substantially in San Francisco and the surrounding Bay Area.”
Most recently, Shelton was with Iron Mountain, a provider of information management services, where he was an account manager, helping drive revenue and margin through strategic management solutions. Prior to that, Shelton was with YRC Logistics, where he was responsible for managing and establishing new accounts for continued revenue and profit growth. Shelton also was with UPS for 10 years, where he was responsible for the strategic management of more than 100 global accounts.
