    August Monthly Luncheon

    Join us for our August luncheon featuring guest speaker:

     Page Siplon

    CEO, TeamOne Logistics

    TeamOne Logistics is a nationally recognized workforce expert exclusively focused on the asset-based transportation and logistics industry. A partnership with TeamOne eliminates workforce risk and helps reduce cost and complexity, allowing companies to re-focus on the revenue side of their business, concentrate on existing customer relationships, and fine-tune operations. TeamOne Logistics has a unique business model. What we provide is distinctive. We are a long-term enhanced alternative to the driver staffing/leasing companies the transportation industry has endured for too long. Founded in 2003 and based in Alpharetta Georgia, TeamOne Logistics currently serves customers in 111 locations, and has 800 employees across 45 states.

    In logistics, no matter the scale of your operation, your “human infrastructure” should be a key asset in separating you from the competition.  Especially for companies enabled by trucking, where in large fleets annual driver turnover rates can exceed 100%, and complex federal regulations are changing how and when drivers can operate.

    Prior to joining TeamOne Logistics, Siplon served as the Executive Director of the Georgia Center of Innovation for Logistics, the State’s leading consulting resource for fueling logistics industry growth and global competitiveness. For over a decade, he directly assisted hundreds companies overcome challenges and capitalize on opportunities related to the movement of freight. During this time, Siplon was also appointed to concurrently serve the State of Georgia as Director of the larger Centers of Innovation Program, in which he provided executive leadership and vision for all six strategic industry focused Centers.

    As a frequently requested keynote speaker, Siplon is called upon to address a range of audiences on unique aspects of technology, workforce, and logistics. This often includes topics of global and domestic logistics trends, supply chain visibility, collaboration, and strategic planning. He has also been quoted as an industry expert in publications such as Forbes, Journal of Commerce, Fortune, NPR, Wall Street Journal, Reuters, American Express, DC Velocity, Area Development Magazine, Site Selection Magazine, Inbound Logistics, Modern Material Handling, and is frequently a live special guest on SirusXM’s Road Dog Radio Show.

    Siplon is an active industry participant, recognized by DC Velocity Magazine as a “2012 Logistics Rainmaker” which annually identifies the top-ten logistics professionals in the Nation; and named a “Pro to Know” by Supply & Demand Executive Magazine in 2014. Siplon was also selected by Georgia Trend Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Most Influential Georgians” for 2013, 2014 and 2015. He also serves various industry leadership roles at both the State and Federal level. Governor Nathan Deal nominated Siplon to represent Georgia on a National Supply Chain Competitiveness Advisory Committee, where he was appointed to a two-year term by the U.S. Secretary of Commerce and was then appointed to serve as its vice-chairman. At the State level, he was selected by then Governor Sonny Perdue to serve as lead consultant on the Commission for New Georgia’s Freight and Logistics Task Force. In this effort, Siplon led a Private Sector Advisory Committee with invited executives from a range of private sector stakeholders including UPS, Coca-Cola, The Home Depot, Delta Airlines, Georgia Pacific, CSX, and Norfolk Southern.

    Siplon honorably served a combined 12 years in the United States Marine Corps and United States Air Force. During this time, he led the integration of encryption techniques and deployed cryptographic devices for tactically secure voice and data platforms in critical ground-to-air communication systems. This service included support for all branches of the Department of Defense, multiple federal security agencies, and aiding NASA with multiple Space Shuttle launches.

    Originally from New York, Siplon received both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in electrical and computer engineering with a focus on digital signal processing from the Georgia Institute of Technology. He earned an associate’s degree in advanced electronic systems from the Air Force College, and completed multiple military leadership academies in both the Marines and Air Force. Siplon currently lives in Cumming Georgia (north of Atlanta) with his wife Jan, and two children Thomas (17) and Lily (12).
