ICAT Logistics Detroit (DTW) recently announced the appointment of Jay Warner as their Vice President of Automotive Sales.
Warner, who was previously Vice President of Sales and Marketing for the Michigan-based Diversified Tooling Group, brings 30 years of wide-ranging experience in the automotive industry as a sales leader, project manager, estimator for engineering changes, and pattern maker.
“ICAT Logistics Detroit is growing fast because of our intensive focus on the needs of the automotive industry and its extensive supply base,” said Daniel Cser, the firm’s Agency Owner. “Jay’s deep knowledge of the industry’s logistics requirements will help take our customized service to another level.”
Warner, who holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration from Baker College, helped drive Diversified Tooling Group’s strong growth during his 11 years of sales leadership. His success was due in part to his deep understanding of the tooling industry, where he began his career on the shop floor.
“I know from experience the critical role that logistics plays in the success of an automotive program,” Warner said. “We live in a world where just-in-time manufacturing requires that every part of the supply chain does its job. Making sure that machinery is delivered to the right place at the right time in the proper condition is an essential link in the chain. I’m looking forward to doing my part through ICAT Logistics DTW.”
