TOP 100 GLOBAL SALES LEADERS 2019

Aaron Leckow

Senior Vice President, Sales
Echo Global Logistics

One of Echo’s earliest employees, Leckow began working at the technology-enabled transportation and logistics outsourcing firm in 2006, a year after its launch and just as it was about to go public on the NASDAQ. Since then, the Michigan State University graduate has risen among the rank and file, first as director of sales at the Chicago-based company, then as vice president of inside sales and, in 2017, as senior vice president of sales. In the nearly two years since that appointment, Echo has experienced tremendous growth, consistently outperforming Wall Street projections while keeping a relatively low profile — considering that its founder is the multibillionaire entrepreneur Eric Lefkofsky, the chairman of Groupon.
