CEO of IBC USA
Joe started his career with IBC at the age of sixteen recovering courier consolidations at the airport and making deliveries into Manhattan on Sundays. During Joe’s college years he took on a larger role at the local JFK office eventually being promoted to Operations Manager and throughout the years to CEO.
IBC was historically a wholesale provider of courier services into the Caribbean & Latin America for other freight forwarders & courier companies. As the larger multi-national logistics providers (UPS, Fed Ex, DHL etc) started to gain strength in these regions, IBC had no choice but to evolve and enter into the retail market and break away from its roots as a provider of wholesale services within the logistics community. This evolution into the retail market was headed up by Joe in New York City and then rolled out to the other cities that IBC had offices ( London, Los Angeles, Boston & Miami). During this time the ZipX concept was created and first launched in Bermuda & Trinidad Tobago.
