As CEO of St. George Logistics Holdings, Chris Jamroz possesses business experience and expertise in the logistics and financial sectors. Chris Jamroz has been a lifelong advocate for furthering education and is a tenured mentor with the Schulich School of Business at Toronto’s York University.

Mentors at the Schulich School of Business interact directly with a student one-on-one. Mentors share industry insights, give professional advice, and help students advance their time management and communication skills. Mentors also provide guidance regarding job search strategies.

The mentorship program at the Schulich School of Business operates throughout the academic year. Students and mentors are encouraged to meet a minimum of four times over the course of the program. Throughout this time, students and mentors also meet at specific events where they can share ideas and experiences.

Mentoring provides both personal and professional value for the mentee and enables the transfer of knowledge from someone with much greater experience. An ideal mentoring relationship is one in which the parties feel a positive camaraderie and they both gain valuable insights and new perspectives.

Chris Jamroz guides STG Holdings, LLC, and coordinates North America’s largest independent container freight station (CFS) facilities network. Chris Jamroz’ team maintains more than 4 million square feet of dedicated US warehousing space to provide distribution and time-sensitive inventory management solutions.

Trends impacting the shipping industry in 2017 include increased consolidation amidst a landscape of falling rates for freight shipments and a renewed focus on the bottom line. With seven major companies controlling nearly two-thirds of the world capacity, the focus is on synergies that enable costs to be kept to an absolute minimum and developing new efficiencies.

Vessel-sharing agreements that involve major partnerships between players such as Transport High Efficiency, 2M Alliance + HMM group, and Ocean are underway. These agreements will engender changes in vessel routing and terminal location while also highlighting a need for flexibility in all aspects of the shipment process. One key readjustment already underway is for capacity growth that is more closely tied to traffic and demand, in ways that improve responsiveness to the actual flow of goods.

A recipient of the Florida Governor’s Business Ambassador Medal, Chris Jamroz is a logistics executive in North America. Currently, Chris Jamroz serves as the CEO of St. George Logistics Holdings and the Executive Chairman of St. George Logistics (STG), the largest provider of outsourced customer freight station (CFS) services in North America.

In May 2017, STG announced it had acquired Extra Express, a division of Dicom Transportation Group, in order to complement its full range of logistics services with last mile delivery solutions. Extra Express provides warehousing and delivery services to corporates in California. It operates four warehouses and has a delivery fleet of over 300 vehicles. STG will integrate Extra Express’ network with its own, achieving a last mile delivery service to serve the California market.

The acquisition means STG clients on the west coast will enjoy a closed-loop range of services from drayage, to warehousing, to intermodal transportation, and finally to last mile delivery. Its customers will no longer have to hire third-party transportation companies to deliver products from STG warehouses to their doorsteps; STG will do that for them. Fulfilling customers’ logistics needs will be faster, easier, less expensive, and more integrated with STG’s existing services.

Three Simple Ways to Improve Shareholder Value

An accomplished business executive within the transportation industry, Chris Jamroz is the CEO of St. George Logistics Holdings and the Executive Chairman of St George Logistics (STG Logistics). Possessing more than a decade of leadership experience, Chris Jamroz has a proven track record of increasing shareholder value in both public and private companies.

Many companies want to increase shareholder value to ensure their business continues performing well. However, actually accomplishing this can be difficult due to the many theories relating to the subject. The following are three simple ways to improve shareholder value:

1. Enhance revenue: By improving a company’s market awareness and image, business leaders can help boost the revenue of their business. This naturally improves a company’s shareholder value because companies with higher revenues are more valuable. In addition to changing awareness, a business can also improve their revenue by developing new products or increasing the price of some of their current products; the latter of which may put the company at risk for customer losses.

2. Retain talent: A good business is built with the help of leaders who are experienced and knowledgeable within the field. For this reason, companies should retain their expert talent as much as possible by setting up staff contracts and managing staff performance. Doing so ensures employees stay with a business for a certain amount of time and gives business leaders the chance to promote those individuals who perform well.

3. Protect assets: Every company is at risk of fraud, but owners can boost shareholder value and improve their company’s chance at success by limiting this risk. To accomplish this, leaders should protect a business’ assets by reducing the number of unapproved customer contact list transfers and watching for fraudulent supplier payments.
