We are a husband and wife team that has spent close to 30 years in the corporate world with Fortune 500 companies, non-profit organizations, and high-tech startups. While those jobs were amazing and enabled us to provide for our family, our ultimate goal was to create a company to control our destiny.
We are a customer-focused courier service company with integrity that focuses on teamwork and giving back to the community.
Meet the Owners
Michele Pitek, Founder & CEO
Michele Pitek has over 25 years of experience as a Seasoned Professional working for Fortune 100 and 200 companies. During her career, Michele has excelled as an HR Executive, holding just about every HR field job, including a Leadership Coach, Recruiter, and VP/Director of HR. Writing for Forbes HR Councils, Michele is seen as a Leader in HR. Later in her career, Michele increased her Operations experience by adding VP of Operations to her resume working for a small high-tech company in the Financial industry. All jobs provided invaluable experience and an impressive resume, but none grew her or challenged her more than her position working for a Non-Profit in the heart of Oakland, CA. Michele says, “It was the best experience of my career. I had to be scrappy to get things done with little to no budget – I had to think on my feet every single day!”
As the President and CEO of the organization, Michele, with her husband, takes all of their Corporate/Non Profit experience and successfully applies it to grow their company as an Amazon DSP. Focusing on employees rather than P&L, Michele has seen a 500% growth in company size and a hearty profit to match all within 90 days. When asked why she’s not focused on the bottom line, she says her experience with the Non-Profit comes to mind. “We had a mission, and that was to serve others; employees, customers, community. That philosophy drives this company and me; serve my employees, serve our customers, and give back to the community. The rest will come.”
