Jeremy Cope wanted to make a career change about 15 years ago. An opportunity to enter the automotive industry presented itself. Cope took it, and now he’s a critical cog in MetroGistics’ machine.
“I am responsible for leading our experienced and motivated dispatch and operations team to exceed customer expectations, meet revenue and margin goals, increase company profitability and reduce operational costs,” Cope said. “My primary goal is to facilitate effective, successful relationships between our management team, internal staff, partners and clients.”
With a wide array of responsibilities, Cope pointed out what he enjoys most.
“I appreciate the constant evolution of logistics almost as much as the interaction with clients and partners. In this industry, you never have to worry about two days being the same,” Cope said.
“I am proud of working hand in hand with my colleagues each day to come up with, and execute on, the next great idea in our industry,” he continued.
Now nearly two decades later, Cope doesn’t appear poised to make another major career change, primarily because of MetroGistics’ leadership headed up by Scott Naz and William Billiter.
“Both gentlemen are true entrepreneurs who give their employees room to express themselves both personally and professionally, and encourage them to come up with their own ideas and new ways of doing things,” Cope said.
“In an industry that has been around forever and can often be hindered by routine, it is nice to see people who encourage the development and execution of fresh ideas,” Cope went on to say.
