Purolator International President John Costanzo has announced the promotion of Western U.S. District Manager Sean Kelly to the position of Vice President, Field Sales & Services.  Purolator International, the leading provider of cross-border logistics between the U.S. and Canada, continues to expand its customer base and services across the United States.  In his new role, Kelly will have oversight of the Purolator International customer experience, leading the company’s five districts in developing the company’s current and new business relationships.

“Sean continues his impressive tenure at Purolator International,” said Costanzo.  “His leadership, organizational skills, and customer centric approach are all essential elements to the Field Sales & Services role, and to Purolator International’s dedication to delivering a superior customer experience.”

Through the Field Sales & Services Department, Kelly will be responsible for the company’s five U.S. districts – Central, Eastern, Great Lakes, Southern, Western – encompassing 30 branch markets across the US.  The department is charged with bringing in new business, managing existing customer relationships, running the day-to-day U.S. warehouse operations, and for overall improvement of the organizational customer experience.

“The quality of Purolator International’s logistics solutions is unparalleled and this makes me confident in my sales responsibilities,” said Kelly.  “Our customers deserve and require the best and I am honored to be entrusted in helping to see that they get it.”

Kelly began his career as an auditor at a financial institution, followed by several years at one of the Big 4 accounting firms, before joining Purolator International as Director of Finance and Administration in 2004.  He distinguished himself by designing financial and customer analysis applications, skills later applied in his field leadership roles… most recently serving as Western U.S. District Manager based in Los Angeles, CA.  Now, in his new position as Vice President, the Long Island native returns to New York and will be based at Purolator International’s Jericho headquarters.

He earned his MBA from Pepperdine University and his B.S. in Accounting from Dowling College.  Professionally active, he is a member of the Customer Experience Professionals Association (CXPA).
