MEET MILE HI EXPRESS
President / Owner
I have been with Mile Hi Express now for 7 years. I was in commercial real estate leasing office in Denver for 12 years prior to changing careers. The change has been an exciting time for me and my professional career. What I really like about the transportation business are the people. Everyone is real down to earth and they appreciate the service that we provide. My goal is to continue to expand our customer base while maintaining the excellent service to our existing base of clients. When everything is all said and done, your reputation is all that you have and I fully intend on maintaining that!
Katya Schabacker grew up in Yekaterinburg, Russia. She has a PHD in Sociology and was a Professor at Ural University, which was the 3rd largest University in Russia. She moved to the United States and joined Mile Hi Express to handle the dubious task of tracking down POD’s and matching inbound BOL’s to tenders which is all necessary to invoice our customers. She enjoys training attack dogs, triathlons, competing in trampoline areal competitions and TV shows “Say Yes to the Dress” and “Marriage at First Sight”. Perhaps her most important task is being a fantastic wife and an extraordinary mother to her and Brit’s two boys Maks and Charlie!
Cindy joined Mile Hi Express in February of 2014 to act as the Company Controller. Her back ground was in manufacturing and banking! Cindy was new to refrigerated transportation and logistics. When Cindy joined Mile Hi Express, she didn’t know that our intention was to cross train her to unload and load trucks on forklifts and make deliveries in our short trucks! We soon discovered shortly thereafter that it was probably in our best interest to just let her do what she was good at.. which was handle all of the company financials. Cindy isn’t your typical “bean counter”. She has a wonderful demeanor and is always making everyone at Mile Hi Express laugh with her witty sense of humor. If you ever have any questions about A/R or A/P, give her a call.. and if you become delinquent in paying one of your invoices, you can surely expect a phone call from Cindy :).
Dan is our operations manager. It took almost 2 years to find the right person to handle this position. Dan gets it. He understands the importance of filling pallet spots and making multiple deliveries throughout the day. He has a great relationship with all the receiving managers throughout Colorado which, in this industry, is crucial as you make refrigerated and frozen deliveries throughout the day. He understands how to communicate with our customers and consignees to make the receiving, storing and redelivering process go as smoothly as possible.
Cory is our warehouse manager and a direct partner to Dan. He works diligently to make sure the warehouse runs efficiently. Cory handles the organization of the warehouse and makes sure the loads are on time and correct. Working directly with drivers and our warehouse staff, Cory is heavily involved with the shipping and storage process.
