SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Visible Supply Chain Management (Visible), the industry leader in shipping and fulfillment services for small to midsize businesses, today announces that Jim Cochrane has joined the Visible Board of Directors to support the company as it continues to disrupt and improve the supply chain management industry in a changing marketplace.

Prior to joining Visible, Cochrane served as the chief marketing and sales officer at the United States Postal Service (USPS).

Before that, he was chief information officer and executive vice president at USPS, where he was responsible for the integration of technology and innovation in all aspects of operations.

“We are thrilled to add an expert like Jim to the Visible Board of Directors because he brings unique e-Commerce expertise— being involved in online transactions and spending since inception,” said Casey Adams, president of Visible. “With decades of experience in digital transformation such as customer experience, marketing, business intelligence and e-Commerce strategies, we expect he will make important contributions to our rapidly growing company.”

At USPS Cochrane spearheaded the advancement of new mail intelligence, engineering systems, information technology systems, payment technology, secure digital solutions and corporate information security to meet the changing needs of the marketplace. He and his team were responsible for innovations in tracking systems — including the Intelligent Mail barcode (IMb) and Intelligent Mail package barcode (IMpb).

“Joining a company as dynamic and growth-oriented as Visible is an exciting venture for me. Visible is laser-focused on the future of e-Commerce— reinventing themselves and finding new channels and segments,” noted Cochrane. “The marketplace is going through tremendous changes right now, and Visible is at the forefront of innovation.”

Visible is dedicated to building the best and most flexible ecosystem to help its SMB clients succeed in their businesses while also creating highly agile teams with professionals like Cochrane.

The company is set to open its R&D warehouse in the Fall of 2019 to collect, test and report on new ideas and technologies for the supply chain management industry. The R&D warehouse will help Visible’s clients by proving the value and impact of new technologies and equipment.

Other crucial growth and development areas include the soon-to-be-implemented new packaging plant, as well as the company’s new API to improve the client experience in working with Visible.

Visible’s new Board member joining the team comes on the heels of winning multiple industry and business awards in 2019 including the #919 spot on the Inc 5000, Utah’s 3rd Fastest Growing Company on the Utah Business Magazine Fast 50 List and the regional EY ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ award in distribution and manufacturing.

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Inc. magazine revealed that Visible Supply Chain Management is No. 919 on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses. Microsoft, Dell, Domino’s Pizza, Pandora, Timberland, LinkedIn, Yelp, Zillow, and many other well-known names gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

“Visible is delighted to be recognized on the Inc. 5000 for the second year in a row,” said Casey Adams, Visible’s president. “Most important to us is our customers’ continued success which has been driving our growth, and our inclusion on both the 2019 and 2018 Inc. 5000 validates our mission.”

Visible was recently honored as the 3rd fastest growing company in Utah by the Utah Business Fast 50 award program. The company is the only supply chain management business recognized in the top ten and has been in the top three since 2017.

Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 (which are listed online at Inc.com, with the top 500 companies featured in the September issue of Inc.) been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.

Of the tens of thousands of companies that have applied to the Inc. 5000 over the years only a fraction has made the list more than once. A mere one in four companies have made the list two times.

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000.

“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”

The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
