Ziomek joins Odyssey’s leadership team to oversee operations for 82 global locations with a workforce of 2,000+
December 11, 2023 – Odyssey Logistics (Odyssey), a global leader in logistics and technology solutions, announced that Michael Ziomek has been appointed chief operating officer effective December 11. With 30 years in leadership roles in supply chain logistics, warehousing and distribution, Ziomek comes aboard Odyssey as the company advances its growth strategy, transitions to a unified Odyssey brand and aims to enhance customer experiences worldwide.
“Michael has an impressive track record of steering complex global operations, managing teams and leveraging technology for the benefit of customers,” said Hans Stig Moller, CEO of Odyssey. “We look forward to Michael’s stewardship of Odyssey operations at this evolutionary time in our company’s history.”
Ziomek has extensive logistics and operational leadership experience in a wide range of industries—automotive, medical device, technology, food, retail and consumer products. In his most recent role as COO at Highline Warren in Memphis, Tenn., he led a supply chain organization of 400 team members across 12 sites, supported revenue expansion from $350 million to $1.7 billion and and assisted in the successful sale to new private equity ownership.
Prior to that, he held leadership roles at Smith & Nephew, Technicolor, Ingram Micro, Rite Aid Corporation and Clorox Company.
Ziomek earned a Bachelor of Science in agricultural and managerial economics from the University of California, Davis, and a Masters of Business Administration in information and decision systems from the University of San Francisco.
“Odyssey is a unique, well respected leader in logistics and technology and I’m excited to use my experience to help the company grow in this transformational time,” said Ziomek “I’m eager to build on Odyssey’s more than two decades of success, evolving our operational strategy to align with our ambitious growth objectives.”
Ziomek succeeds previous COO Cosmo Alberico, who spent nearly two decades in leadership positions at Odyssey. Alberico retired in October 2023, following a tenure at Odyssey that resulted in average annual double-digit revenue growth.
Ziomek will lead operational strategy and management for the company’s four core divisions — Integrated Marine Logistics, Intermodal, Managed Services and Transport & Warehouse, under a unified Odyssey brand. Odyssey’s unified brand strategy is intended to make it easier for customers to harness the full value of the company’s offerings: extensive multi-modal capabilities, advanced technology solutions, and data-driven sustainability metrics.
