MEET THE TEAM
STEPHAN was born in Basel, Switzerland. Stephan began his freight forwarding career in 1977 as a 19 year old apprentice. Shortly after starting, his company sent him across the world to work first in their New York office, and then in their Toronto office. It was in Toronto that Stephan met his wife, Carol, and they moved out west to Calgary. In 1990, Stephan ventured out to start his own freight forwarding company, Ocean-Air Freight Ltd. His love for adventure has not changed, and he continually travels the world with his wife Carol. Whenever he has free time, you will find him skiing or working his farm. You will not find a harder working or diligent man than Stephan. There is no ‘impossible’ in his vocabulary. Talk to him if you need help in German or French.
GLEN joined his dad, Stephan, in the shipping business, and has been working in company operations for 11 years. He is currently taking over marketing and accounting responsibilities too. He went to school for business, and has travelled to many countries, living for periods of time in Thailand and the Philippines. In his free time, you will find him being active, climbing mountains or playing soccer. Glen has been learning Thai, but is not yet at the level to be able to assist you thoroughly in that language. You can be sure that Glen will always be eager to listen and help wherever is needed.

Carlos speaks Spanish fluently. Since he started at Ocean-Air Freight, Carlos continually looks for ways to make our operations more efficient.
