Saddle Creek CEO Recognized as a Top Florida Executive

Florida Trend business magazine has recognized Saddle Creek Logistics Services’ CEO Cliff Otto as one of the Florida 500™. This research-based list identifies the state’s most influential business leaders across major industries.

Florida Trend editors selected the 500 executives on this inaugural list based on extensive contacts in regional business circles, hundreds of interviews and months of research. They used a variety of sources, including input from executives of economic development organizations, professional associations and others.

Spanning almost five decades, Otto’s career in the supply chain industry validates his selection for this list. After earning an MBA with an emphasis in logistics, he held executive management roles with CHEP USA, Baxter Healthcare and American Can Co. Since joining Saddle Creek in 2001, Otto has helped the company to more than double in size to become one of the largest family-owned 3PL’s in North America.

The supply chain community at large has also benefitted from Otto’s support. He helped to establish Saddle Creek as an industry partner with Florida Polytechnic University and is currently vice chair for its Board of Trustees. He was instrumental in establishing Saddle Creek’s sponsorship of the American Logistics Aid Network (ALAN) and serves as the relief organization’s vice president, agency relations.

Otto has held leadership roles with a number of organizations, including the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), Warehousing Education and Resource Council (WERC) and, most recently, as chairman of the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA).

Throughout his career, Otto has demonstrated a distinguished record of contribution to the state of Florida as well as the disciplines of logistics and supply chain management.
