We’re delighted to welcome Rob Doone as president of VPL. Rob’s unique background combines experience in both healthcare supply chain management, finance and technology, which makes him the perfect person to keep us continually ahead of the curve and the competition. By leading the initiative to sharpen VPL’s focus on using leading-edge technology to reinvent freight management, Rob will strategically drive us forward, helping us to grow and scale, and overseeing all day-to-day operations.
Before coming to VPL, Rob was the founding General Manager of a $200-million third-party logistics business unit of a Fortune 20 healthcare distribution and services company. Prior to that he worked with Eric McGlade and Scott Crow at HLS Medfreight as VP of Finance & Administration. There he led the efforts in scaling internal operations to handle the company’s explosive growth and directed the processes resulting in the strategic sale of the company. Previously, Rob spent over 20 years in Executive and Financial roles in both venture capital backed, and publicly traded technology, companies. A facility for turnaround and growth has been one of the hallmarks of his career, and he feels incredibly fortunate to have worked for, and with, great people along the way. An alumnus of the University of Notre Dame, Rob graduated with a BBA in Finance.
