Hi, I'm Shane - Founder of CheMogul. This journey began 10 years ago after moving to Chicago to start a career with a F1000 tech company. Leveraging that experience, I became the first employee of 70-person logistics and supply chain startup, launched a dynamic brokerage model for an industrial equipment company, and most recently worked for a F500 chemical distributor. These roles provided a unique opportunity to develop my knowledge in a diverse set of industries, which led to the design of CheMogul. Growing up my father instilled a "work smarter, not harder" mentality, always leading to my affinity for simplicity - which ultimately became the framework and motto the company was built on. The challenge realized in the raw material space was that everything was fragmented, manual, and mentally exhausting. I knew from experience that technology can do great things for people, so I quit my job to develop an innovative solution built to connect buyers and their trusted suppliers in a centralized environment. Today, our team is fortunate enough to help companies across North America streamline their workflow and maximize their industry potential.
