Stan Sechler is the Chief Information Officer (CIO) at BLC Transportation. Initially referred to Brent in 2008 by a mutual client, he has 13+ years of experience in the IT industry and has a portfolio that includes project management, business process streamlining, workflow maximization, throughput and efficiency. An avid (and long time suffering) St. Louis Blues fan, Stan can be found playing ice hockey, lifting weights, grilling & drinking bourbon – although not necessarily in that order. At any given point you might hear one of his English bulldogs snoring from his office.
Liz Forbes is the head of the recruiting department at BLC Transportation. Liz has a teaching background and prior to working in the trucking industry she spent 10 years teaching middle school and college classes. Liz’s favorite job is being a mom to her three kids. Liz enjoys getting to know the drivers and discovering their personalities as well as their driving strengths throughout the application process. A strong believer in the power of positive thinking, Liz enjoys empowering drivers with positive energy on a daily basis. Liz takes pleasure in her family, lake time, and a good Netflix binge, but can also be found in fitness and yoga classes on a daily basis.
Brent Forbes is the president, owner, and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of BLC Transportation. Brent was a former driver and has been in the transportation business since 1999. Prior to the transportation industry, Brent was in the dairy business, and is no stranger to hard work. BLC Transportation came to fruition in 2006 with only 5 trucks. BLC joined in a partnership with Prime Inc. in March of 2007. Prime Inc has a power only group called the Advanced Fleet, and through the partnership with Prime the company has grown to 100 trucks. Brent takes pride in treating employees and drivers like family, and continues to call drivers by name and not a number. When Brent is not in the office he can often be found in a deer blind in the woods, but truly enjoys his family and time at the lake.
