CareGo forecasts growth, expands senior team

HAMILTON – CareGo has expanded its management team with three new senior positions, reflecting the company’s continued growth in supply chain innovation.

Pascal Lachance has joined the company as vice president of Supply Chain Innovation. He will oversee CareGo’s growing technology team, which is responsible for developing and commercializing optimization technology so that materials such as steel, pipe and tube, aluminum and paper can be stored in less space.

Glenn Nicholson fills the new position of director of Automation. He will help to develop new automated technology and enhance existing products.

Cynthia Janzen is CareGo’s vice president, Communications, and responsible for all internal and external communications, and both corporate and product brand development.

“Each of these new positions will help CareGo accelerate its growth, particularly in supply chain innovation,” says president and CEO Demetrius Tsafaridis. “It’s a very dynamic time for our company and we needed more players to help capitalize on the opportunities ahead.”

Pascal Lachance is re-locating from Vancouver, where he operated a business and technology consulting company.  Glenn Nicholson is a long-time Burlington resident who ran his own consulting business, Automated Control Systems, for many years. Cynthia Janzen was previously vice president and senior consultant at Hellingman Communications in Hamilton.

CareGo was founded in 1999 as a steel warehousing company known as SteelCare and rapidly expanded into related services, including truck transport, general distribution and transloading. Today, the company is increasingly known for developing optimization technology and automation systems that result in capacity, throughput and safety benefits. CareGo operates the largest steel transload facility in Canada at its headquarters on Longwood Road South, in west Hamilton. It also has an Innovation Centre in Burlington.
