GEORGE GOLDMAN PRESIDENT, ZIM AMERICAN INTEGRATED SHIPPING SERVICES LTD., NORFOLK


Container ships handled surging volumes alongside increased demand for some goods during the pandemic, even as supply chains slowed. Containers couldn’t get unloaded and returned fast enough for some shippers, and Goldman said he doesn’t see that changing soon.


“I do think we have a long way to go” said Goldman during the 2021 Georgia Foreign Trade Conference, The Journal of Commerce reported. “I don’t see us getting out of this thing any time soon.” Goldman has led ZIM’s American division since 2015. With oper- ations in more than 100 countries, the Haifa, Israel-based shipping giant started 2021 by listing on the New York Stock Exchange. It also broke its income record, Port Technology reported.


As tensions flared between


Israelis and Palestinians earlier this spring, ZIM was targeted by activists protesting Israel’s actions in Gaza. A ZIM-operated container ship turned back to sea aſter protesters in Oakland prevented it from unloading, according to news reports.


A graduate of San Jose State University in California, Goldman spent much of his career with APL, working in Hong Kong, Scottsdale, Arizona, and Singapore in executive roles before joining ZIM in 2015.


GANA GOVIND PRESIDENT, SOFTEON, RESTON


Surges in online commerce during the pandemic leſt some companies scrambling to keep up. With offices in Peru and India, as well as Reston, Soſteon is a leader in supply chain soſtware to help manage warehouses, including


incorporating emerging technologies, like mobile robots, to help compa- nies improve fulfillment processes.


Soſteon announced earlier this year that its cloud-based warehouse management soſtware would be used by KSP Fulfillment, a third-party logistics firm in Minnesota. KSP, which is completing a 182,000-square- foot warehouse this year in suburban Minneapolis, with plans to build others on the East and West coasts, works with medical, pet care, agricul- tural and other industries on order placement and warehousing. Govind founded Soſteon in 1999 and has a master’s degree in physics


from the University of Madras in India. In 2019, Soſteon announced a minority investment from Warburg Pincus, a private equity firm. Soſteon also opened its Warehouse of the Future Innovation Lab in May 2020 to test its sorting and weighing technology for broader use.


CHARLES


PAUL HOELTING PRESIDENT, TFORCE FREIGHT, RICHMOND


In a leadership shuffle this spring, Hoelting took over as president of the newly renamed TForce Freight, formerly known as UPS Freight. In April, the company was sold to Canada-based TFI International for $800 million. TForce Freight handles less-than-truckload shipping across all 50 states, as well as Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam. Hoelting previously served as senior vice president for sales and marketing for UPS Freight and has worked in the transportation industry for more than three decades.


‘CHUCK’ KUHN FOUNDER, PRESIDENT AND CEO, JK MOVING SERVICES, STERLING


Kuhn runs the nation’s largest independently owned moving company, with more than


$146 million in revenue in 2020 and 1,152 employees. Faced with a nationwide driver shortage, JK increased annual guaranteed income for experienced over-the-road class-A drivers to a minimum of $100,000. Kuhn is also known for his conservation efforts throughout Loudoun County and elsewhere. Earlier this year, he purchased the historic White’s Ferry, which since the 1700s has shuttled passengers across the Potomac River from Virginia to Maryland. The ferry closed in late 2020 following a property rights dispute. In June, through a partnership with Dutch developer Yondr Group, Kuhn’s JK Land Holdings LLC purchased 270 acres in Loudoun and Prince William counties that will be used for data centers. Kuhn and his company have received the Loudoun Laurels award, the Washington Business Journal’s Corporate Citizen of the Year award and Old Dominion Land Conservancy’s Conservation Steward Award.


BEST ADVICE FOR OTHERS: Work hard. Hire well. Be clear about your goals, values and what you stand for. Treat everyone — your customers, your employees and those in your community — with care and respect.


In 1993, he went to work for Overnite Transportation, which was purchased in 2005 by UPS and became UPS Freight. The company, with more than 23,000 trailers and more than 6,300 tractors, reported more than $3 billion in 2020 revenue. Hoelting is a member of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation’s Virginia board, and he holds degrees from the University of Nebraska and William & Mary. In June, The Atlanta Journal- Constitution reported that UPS and TForce Freight faced a $3.8 million penalty in a settlement for violations over the handling and reporting of hazardous waste in some facilities. The companies have two years to comply.


PERRY J. MILLER PRESIDENT AND CEO, CAPITAL REGION AIRPORT COMMISSION, RICHMOND


Miller credits a conservative approach to finance over the years and cost-cutting measures made during the early days of the pandemic for helping the Capital Region Airport Commission maintain a healthy cash position during COVID-19. The commission, which has 178 employ- ees, reported $43.8 million in revenue in 2020. Miller, who is on the boards of


ChamberRVA and Richmond Region Tourism, also serves as secretary and treasurer of the American Association of Airport Executives and president-elect of its Southeast chapter.


Miller says his first job as a cook at a


Houston fried chicken restaurant made him realize the importance of teamwork and that customers could be a good source for


feedback. Today he’s passionate about helping others. “I consider it a


blessing to be shared when a person is


fortunate enough to be in a position to help someone else achieve success,” Miller says. “That opportunity should not be sacrificed to selfish ambition.”


BEVERAGE OF CHOICE: Q Ginger Beer


ONE THING I WOULD CHANGE ABOUT VIRGINIA: Virginia is well on its way to mitigating the negative perceptions associated with the Confederacy, but more emphasis ought to be directed to its beautiful landscapes and attractions as a tourism destination.
