About Our VP: Cori Eckley
Cori Eckley—now representing the fourth generation in the family business—became the VP of NATCO's operations in 2005 and continues to redirect the company’s focus, processes, and customer development.
A graduate of Bellevue University (with both Bachelor’s of Science and MBA degrees), Cori appreciates the value of her education, which continues to inform NATCO's ongoing campaign to get it right for the customer. That helps explain why 90% of NATCO's customer base is repeat business.
“Among many other things,” she says, “we learn risk management at university. And not least of the value in that education is learning how to be proactive. I think that without it, risk management would be a reactive scenario, and that typically means financial loss.”
In 2017, Cori become a Certified Transportation Broker, the highest certification and most widely recognized distinction in the transportation industry.
Over the years, she has also parlayed her education into sharing expertise with the transportation community. This past spring, Cori was elected as an At-large Member of Transportation Intermediaries Association’s Board of Directors.
Proudly, Cori actively participates in key vendor relationships, which includes being a customer advisory board member of Truckstop.com, and attends yearly Transportation Intermediaries Association conferences.
