“Always strive to be quicker, better and more reliable than competitors.” - Stéphane Rambaud

While at Phoenix International, Rambaud held a variety of positions including executive vice president, chief operating officer, and president and CEO. 

After C.H. Robinson's acquisition of Phoenix International in 2012, he led the global forwarding integration between the two companies.
