Over the past year, he has been instrumental in steering the company's franchise and agent channels into a period of remarkable growth and has led the charge in expanding networks and increasing revenue. For Unishippers, he's helped welcome over 80 new franchisees and acquired 50 established franchises. Meanwhile, GlobalTranz has added 50 agent partners. This influx of new franchises and agents has been a growth accelerator, allowing the company to boost revenue and brand awareness.

"I am very grateful to be acknowledged with the Lifetime Achievement Award from Supply & Demand Chain Executive. It's really an affirmation of the great work that we do here at WWEX Group and that I am proud to be a part of," Wesley, who has spent his entire 18-year career at the company, said. "Our Partner Channel is an outstanding program that allows sales professionals and business owners to take control of their career and build a business on their own terms. It has been a true team effort, and today I couldn't be prouder of the opportunity we provide to logistics professionals"

And on a daily basis, I am honored to provide leadership and support to this community of professionals. The award is just a testament to the great work we are doing here and I'm looking forward to what the future holds," said Johnson, an Army veteran whose professional passion is growing people and companies. "Our Partner Channel is world-class.
