NEW YORK, Dec. 2, 2021 — Transfix Inc. (“Transfix”), a leading, next-generation digital freight platform, today announced the addition of Guy Byars as Senior Vice President of Carrier Growth, and Jennifer Mosso as Vice President of Shipper Growth.
Byars brings two decades of freight experience, previously having built a $100MM+ brokerage division for Echo and Jones, and leading Schneider National and C.A.T.

Today, Transfix stands apart with its focus on bridging customer value via carrier and driver-focused optimizations,” explained Byars. “I eagerly anticipate exploring how our broad brokerage experience will align with the brilliant team at Transfix as we simplify adaptation for our partner carriers and customers.”
Mosso adds deep experience in brokerage operations, supply chain optimization, solution design, customer growth, team building, and commercial leadership. “Transfix’s commitment to transparency and relationships, alongside its focus on technology and automation, is what sets us apart from competitors in the industry,” said Mosso. “I’m thrilled to be joining a dynamic team, and look forward to creating actionable solutions and services that add significant value to customers’ supply chains.”
“We’re at an incredible moment in our company’s history, primed for continued growth and scale in an industry ripe for our tech and service solutions,” said Lily Shen, CEO and President of Transfix. “The knowledge and relationships that Guy and Jennifer bring to the table, combined with their passion for infusing technology into the industry, positions us to double down on customer experience and help our partners thrive, no matter the market conditions.”
Most recently, Byars served as VP of Jones Logistics, prior to that, VP of C.A.T. Global Inc., and held various management roles at Echo Global Logistics and Schneider National. He earned a Bachelor of Business Administration degree from Kansas State University.
