Cara was the owner of the US Cargo Control new product development key rock in 2020. This challenged her to grow in both how she works and the work she does. Setting out to get better at setting expectations and holding team members accountable, she rose to the challenge, didn’t let obstacles get in the way and brought the project to a successful 2020 finish.
Let’s talk KPIs! 2020 finished with $672K in new product revenue. That’s a lot of revenue! Not to mention that it is a revenue that will continue to grow.
Q4 was rounded out with a new program that one of our vendors launched. This program allows users to monitor the weight of loads through tension and compression, has already done 5 figures in sales, and is likely to do 6 figures in 2021. It was a difficult project that required getting A LOT of details right. Cara stayed organized and brought it all together for a successful launch into a whole new product line. A line that is highly relevant to the qualified business we want to attract and retain.
Way to go Cara!
