Rick Champagne - Chairman of the Board

Our Chairman and Founder, Rick Champagne, began his career in the transportation industry in 1977 as a commissioned salesperson Mayflower Van Lines in New Hampshire, primarily selling household relocation services. During his tenure there, he learned how critical it was to develop long term relationships with customers by striving to meet all their transportation needs. As a result of his diligent efforts, he quickly grew to become one of Mayflower´s top sales producers in the country. In 1989, he decided to relocate to a warmer climate, and joined North American Van Lines in Phoenix, Arizona. While working for North American Van Lines, he expanded his experience to include High Value Products distribution. Taking on this additional type of service, enabled him to offer a wider variety of services to his customers. In 1997, Rick decided to start his own company, and Champagne Logistics was born. Since 1997, Champagne Logistics has risen to become a premier nationwide transportation and logistics company. Headquartered in Tempe, Arizona Champagne has operations in California, Arizona, Texas, Tennessee, North Carolina & Massachusetts.
