Cornwell comes to SME from American Global Logistics, where he served as director of finance and manager of financial planning and analysis, respectively.

“The growth of ecommerce, changing consumer preferences and constant carrier rate increases continue to put pressure on the supply chain and drive up shipping costs for retailers and manufacturers,” said Cornwell. “I look forward to helping Spend Management Experts further enhance its financial modeling and business intelligence tools in order to help its growing customer base successfully navigate today’s increasingly challenging supply chain landscape. Our services and technology will help bring greater transparency to customers’ supply chain spend and enable them to take advantage of opportunities to reduce shipping and fulfillment costs.”
