#TeamTuesdays: Meet Adriana Rego Our iTN Worldwide Sales Manager
The sales department of iTN Worldwide can often be its face. Our sales team works diligently to maintain relationships with our partners while developing new ones. The team is tasked with keeping their pulse on the market and getting creative with the logistics process. They also build healthy relationships with our operations team and our carriers to keep the most competitive rates for our customers.
Adriana Rego is our sales manager at iTN Worldwide. The Queens native of Colombian descent manages the entire sales team and builds the company portfolio. Most recently she added two new sales executives and brought on a couple of international members to the iTN force.
“Since I’ve been in sales, exports has been my forte, but at iTN I have grown with imports and cross traffic or foreign to foreign. Our strong global agent network has made this possible, add to that our stellar import operations team and success is the natural result,” Rego said. “One of my primary goals now is agent development which is an area I have experience and success in. Besides having a strong local sales team, the agents and partnerships around the world are essential to our success in promoting and servicing clients worldwide.”
Rego has always been a leader in sales and experienced different sides to her career. Her multidimensional perspective helps her cater to different agent requirements.
“I worked in several different roles starting in inside sales, then import customer service, then import operations. I even worked in customs brokerage briefly before I went into outside sales. I did that for about a year and later was promoted to trade lane manager for South America at the company I worked for,” Rego said. “I held this position for seven years. The owners of the company asked me to help our sales efforts in Chicago which I did for two years before I came back to Miami. Overall I would say I’ve been in the logistics industry for about 15 years.”
Her love for logistics is generational. Her family is also in the industry, and her mother paved the way and encouraged her career.
“My family including my parents and siblings worked in logistics. I was in retail management looking for an opportunity where I didn’t have to work nights or weekends since I was having my first child, my mom told the management team about me and pushed for them to interview me. She should have been in sales- she was quite determined.”
Aside from visiting customers in Miami, her home base, she also travels extensively for work. Her next stop is South America.
“I will be traveling the week of May 7th to Lima, Peru to meet with our partner to expand our relationship and promote our services in the local market,” Rego said. “In March I was with iTN Trinidad in Port of Spain visiting clients and developing our USA to Trinidad weekly consolidation and our worldwide services to the local market.”
Rego said her time at iTN Worldwide has given her a new perspective on company culture and is grateful for her growth as a person and a professional.
“Everyone works together toward growing and giving exemplary service to our clients which helps sales succeed. What I find unique at iTN Worldwide is the culture we maintain, the people, and the willingness we all have to help each other toward the goal of providing global reach with a personal touch to our clients.”
