CIO, Coyote Logistics, a UPS Company [NYSE: UPS]

Darren Cockrel has spent the last 15 of his 20 years in the technology field building, leading, and scaling IT teams for billion-dollar organizations like Nortel and Dollar General. Darren joined the pack in May 2013, after three years at Ozburn-Hessey Logistics, where he served as executive vice president and chief information officer.

Darren’s team internally creates the technology that makes Coyote an industry-leading service provider, from CoyoteGO, our mobile app for drivers, to Coyote.com, our online web portal for customers and carriers, to our internal systems that are purpose-built for the unique way we handle freight.
