Jackson will take the helm of the Council’s SC Logistics initiative as former Director, Suzanne Dickerson, concentrates exclusively on her role as the Director of the SC Fraunhofer USA Alliance, also housed at the Council.
“Taylor has done a phenomenal job working with our SC Logistics partners and promoting the growth of the cluster,” said Susie Shannon, President and CEO of the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness. “In this critical moment in our country when everyone recognizes the importance of logistics and supply chain, we’re especially lucky to have Taylor’s expertise setting the course for the cluster.”
SC Logistics Board Chair, Dave Edwards, echoed that sentiment. “I’m looking forward to working even more closely with Taylor in her new role. She has become an integral leader in the work that SC Logistics does. I look forward to supporting her as we continue to execute the important work focused on keeping South Carolina’s logistics economy strong,” said Edwards.
Taylor joined the South Carolina Council on Competitiveness in May of 2019. Prior to her work at the Council, Jackson worked with Kuehne + Nagel in an account management role in addition to previous experience in maritime export operations.
“I’m excited to continue the work that the SC Logistics initiative began four years ago,” said Jackson. “With an annual impact of over $32.9 billion in SC, logistics has always been a critical engine of our economic growth. We’re poised to make an even bigger impact in the years to come.”
