Our corporate management team at ICAT Logistics is just one piece of the puzzle that makes everything come together seamlessly.
Along with all our employees and agency partners, these team members are behind the driving forces of what occurs within the four walls of our corporate headquarters and beyond.
There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work, and learning from failure.
Rick founded ICAT Logistics in 1993. His career started in 1982 with CF Airfreight. From there, he assumed four different leadership roles over the next five years, and was positioned as the Northeast Regional Cargo Manager at American Airlines.
Rick opened a freight forwarding agency in BWI for a now defunct company in 1992. His time spent as an agency owner caused him to think about the relationship he had with the corporate office and how it might be improved. That experience was the driving factor behind the start of ICAT: a place where every teammate and partner felt included and had their voice heard.
Rick’s chief focus are his wife and four children. His passions are obvious when you get to know him—his family and coaching. When he mentors young men in a variety of sports, his passion definitely shows.
Steve has over 25 years of industry experience. He began his career with Pilot Air Freight before joining ICAT as its first employee. In 1999, he transitioned to his current position from Operations Manager for the BWI Logistics Office. Steve is uniquely able to bring his operations experience into play when developing solutions for customers and ICAT employees alike. If you can’t find Steve playing with the latest piece of geek gadgetry, he’s probably volunteering his IT expertise to family, friends, and the elementary school where his wife teaches. An avid football fan (what non-purists would call soccer), Steve will take time to discuss the finer points of the beautiful game with anyone.

She is passionate about reading, continued learning, outdoor activities, and being with family.
