PGL Employee Spotlight: Michael D’Angelo
Please extend your warmest welcome to our Vice President of Business Development, Michael D’Angelo. Michael was born in New York and spent most of his childhood in New Jersey. He currently resides in the Philadelphia area with his wife and three children. He joined the Point Global Logistics team in March of 2019.
Michael’s day-to-day job duties start with providing excellent customer service to existing clients and developing new business for the company. In addition, he also works with our operations team as a customer liaison, to make sure that the new businesses that come in are handled with the client’s expectations at the forefront. He also travels to meet with clients and attends industry trade shows to help promote our brand. His favorite part of the job is meeting with clients, listening to what they need and helping them improve their supply chains.
In his free time, Michael enjoys golfing, cooking, trying new foods and wine, traveling and spending time with family. One day, Michael hopes to play golf in Scotland and explore Italy, Australia, New Zealand, and Mexico City. His favorite food is pepperoni pizza from Lucali in Brooklyn, and some of his favorite restaurants are Commander’s Palace in New Orleans and Peter Luger’s Steakhouse in Brooklyn.
Michael’s biggest career lesson relates to starting and maintaining a long-term partnership with a client. He believes the best way to do this is through listening and collaboration. He goes on to say, “When I first meet a new prospect, I always try to ask the right questions, then I listen. I want them to tell me what their needs, roadblocks and goals are, not the other way around. That’s how you create customized solutions. We consider ourselves an extension of our clients supply chain and logistics team. I want to work together with my clients to help them achieve their goals and make their company better than before we became their partner. If I can do that, then I have succeeded.”
Thank you for taking the time to get to learn more about Michael! We are so happy to have him as part of our Point Global team.
