Scott's vision for the IACAC in 2017-2018 is to increase forwarder membership and also bringing back airlines and ground handlers who are key parts of the air cargo supply chain. The IACAC is also looking to deliver more value to members and new, members-only deals and sections of the website will be rolled out throughout the year, further reinforcing the IACAC's leadership in the air cargo arena.

Today I’m the General Manager for Land Air Express. I’m a husband to my wife, Lori for the past 36 years. Together we have 2 daughters, and 3 grandchildren.
I began my career in airfreight/trucking in 1979 with O’Hare Air Taxi Service loading and unloading planes. From there I acquired my CDL license and worked over the road for about a decade.
I moved into the office into Airline Logistics operations working closely with Air China, Singapore, Air France and for a time was on site at Lufthansa.
Nurse by trade Olya spent last 20 years working in Airfreight holding various roles ranging from airfreight clerk to a company CCO. She always felt airplanes were her passion and after moving to the States and falling into O’Hare freight community by accident, she turned it into her successful career.
Currently Olya serves on the IACAC Board as a Scholarship Chairwoman while raising her infant daughter Clare and offering media consulting services in partnership with Position : Global. Once Clare is old enough to understand and recognize airplanes by sound of its engines, Olya will be back in action selling and buying airfreight space.
I currently manage the Dangerous Goods Group of Basic Crating & Packaging Inc. I have been working with DG throughout my career starting with W.W. Grainger in 1995 and then moving to DGM Chicago 16 years later. The DGM franchise was then picked up by Basic Crating & Packaging Inc. We have since dropped the franchise and are operating wholly as Basic Crating & Packaging Inc. where the same quality of service is offered now.
I have been involved with the IACAC since 2017. In that time I have made many connections and a growing group of friends attending many of the events the IACAC has offered. My goal is to continue to strengthen the IACAC and have it be a positive place for people within our industry to meet new connections as well as discuss the current industry climate and challenges we all face.
