At FourKites, Fabrizio (“Fab”) Brasca has been elevated to Chief Strategy Officer and Rebecca Nerad has been hired as Vice President of Global Customer Success.
The company’s supply chain visibility platform, FourKites®, is said to extend “visibility beyond transportation into yards, warehouses, stores and beyond,” and to track more than three million shipments daily across rail, road, ocean, air, parcel and last mile, reaching more than 200 countries and territories.
Brasca joined FourKites in 2022 as EVP, Industry and Market Strategy. Now, as Chief Strategy Officer, he will continue to lead the company’s Industry teams and take on expanded responsibilities, including the strategy for FourKites’ Global Alliances division and leadership of the customer value engineering and pre-sales functions.
Nerad has 20-plus years of experience in the supply chain industry. She has held customer success roles for companies such as i2 Technologies, JDA Software and Bristlecone. Most recently, she served as Vice President of Customer Success at e2open. At FourKites, Nerad and her team will focus on building strong relationships and driving value with customers as FourKites expands.
“Fab has played a pivotal role in establishing FourKites’ Industry team and building a vertical go-to-market strategy,” FourKites founder and CEO Mathew Elenjickal said. “His industry knowledge and partnership with customers will serve him well as he helps FourKites develop and execute its strategy more broadly.
“And Rebecca is a remarkable talent and a great fit for our culture, where we pride ourselves on true partnership with our customers. I look forward to working with both of them, as we continue toward our goal of helping customers achieve 100% visibility everywhere.”
