AST&L Treasurer Wins Distinguished Service Award
Mike Regan, DLP
Mike Regan, TranzAct Technologies, Inc.’s chief of relationship development, received the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals’ 2014 Distinguished Service Award in September. The Distinguished Service Award is the most prestigious honor that CSCMP can bestow on an individual for significant achievements in the logistics and supply chain management professions.
Regan was chairman of the American Society of Transportation & Logistics (AST&L) for six years. He currently serves as treasurer and is a Distinguished Logistics Professional (DLP).
Regan is described by industry leaders as “an innovator in supply chain businesses, and a tireless champion of a wide range of causes for decades.” He has been both a visionary and an evangelist for improved logistics performance by all stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and intermediaries, and believes that collaboration among partners is a key factor in improving supply chains.
Regan’s notable supply chain career spans nearly four decades. He cofounded TranzAct Technologies, Inc., in 1984 to deliver state-of-the-art spend management solutions that enabled shippers to plan and control transportation expenditures. By 2000, TranzAct had become the largest privately held freight payment company in the United States. He has served on the boards of the National Industrial Transportation League (NITL); the Transportation Intermediaries Association (TIA), as chairman of the TIA Foundation; and NASSTRAC, as chair of its Advocacy Committee.
In addition, Regan has received many industry honors and has spoken at educational seminars and conferences throughout the U.S. He has been a featured columnist in a wide variety of transportation and supply chain periodicals and has been involved in several leadership organizations, including service on the international board of directors of the Young Presidents’ Organization (YPO). He has also served on the boards of several faith-based ministries.
