Port Jersey Logistics (PJL), a leading third party logistics service provider, has promoted Erik Holck to Director of Business Development. Mr. Holck will be located in PJL’s new facility in Cranbury, NJ, a 442,000-square-foot, high volume, multi-shift food grade warehousing space that became its new corporate headquarters in December 2014.
In his new role, Mr. Holck will focus on strategy development and execution while continuing to oversee business development activities, a responsibility he has performed since 2010 when he was appointed Business Development Manager.
In his previous role, Mr. Holck oversaw business development activities, identified areas for organizational growth and future partnerships, and helped develop new corporate service offerings. Prior to joining the Port Jersey team, he spent several years with another 3PL serving the Northeast market, where he was hired as part of their newly created sales department.
“Strategy and business development are critical functions at Port Jersey Logistics,” said Robert Russo, President of Port Jersey Logistics, “and Erik Holck has proven that he understands the direction in which we want to steer PJL. Since joining the company, Erik has been instrumental in attracting and acquiring new customers, and we are confident he will use his expanded purview to continue moving us forward.”
Mr. Holck has been involved with a variety of industry associations, including the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals, where he was a board member and moderator for official roundtable panels in both New Jersey and New York City; and the International Warehouse Logistics Association, where he has spoken at several educational events relating to sales, marketing and cost/rate development.
Mr. Holck is certified by the IWLA as a Certified Warehouse Logistics Professional (CWLP) and holds a BS in Business Management & Leadership from Rider University.
