Dupré Logistics announced today that Eric Hansen has been appointed as Executive Vice President of Business Development.

Hansen joins Dupré after a successful tenure as Vice President of Retail Solutions at HUB Group and having served in numerous roles at C.H. Robinson, including Director of Corporate Business Development and Director of Strategic Sales.

“Successful business development is the lifeblood of every organization and an especially critical role at Dupré,” said Mike Weindel, President. “Eric’s track record of success in generating profitable new business is impressive and his understanding of the dynamics of customer relationships and the challenges they face is something we value. We are thrilled that he will be leading our sales organization into the future.”

Hansen, a 20-year veteran in the logistics industry, called Dupré a “perfect fit” for him and his professional goals.

“Dupré is a company I’ve admired throughout my career,” Hansen said. “It has been built on a solid value foundation, and I believe my experience and knowledge will help propel the company forward through increased revenues and satisfied customers.”

In his new role, Hansen will create strategy to ensure that Dupré’s evolving services align with customer needs. He will also train and mentor a sales team to continue to meet the demands of a highly volatile supply chain market.
