Matthew Telesca – President and CEO
In May of 2000, Matt founded MGN Logistics, as a traditional truckload brokerage. After two years of research and development, logisticsQuote.com was launched as one of the first online transportation brokerage websites. Customers could easily set up accounts, rate shipments, manage their profile, create shipping documents and track their freight online. After tremendous growth, the site was sold to a private equity group in 2004.
The technology he deployed for online rating was then utilized and applied to brick and mortar operations. In April of 2007, Matt acquired Boston based, D & S Transportation, a freight management firm. With the company continuing to grow, in 2009, a new office in Orlando was established. Heavily reinvesting in unique IT solutions for the transportation space, client growth accelerated and MGN expanded its offices to include Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Florida and the Dominican Republic.
Matt facilitated continuous MGN Logistics diversification by acquiring Laser Transportation Systems and RAF Logistics. Matt’s leadership of MGN Logistics has led to being recognized by INC. magazine, as one of the fasting growing private companies in the United States and by Inbound Logistics as one of the nation’s top 100 3PL Providers. Matt is a graduate of The Pennsylvania State University.
