Using the words of Linda Swindling’s book Ask Outrageously, “the secret to getting what you really want.” Nicole Glenn, Founder and CEO of Candor Expedite, has done personal exercises with her teams on how to get more comfortable and confident to ask for what they want in life and in business. This is a learning lesson that has helped her to take the step into leadership and then into ownership, and the concepts taught in this session are strategies and tactics that she still practices to continually grow herself and her business.

Nicole Glenn founded Candor Expedite in 2017 after more than two decades in the transportation brokerage business, with a vision to build the smartest and most efficient freight business that delivers on its client’s promises. Today Candor is recognized as a leading certified women-owned business headquartered in Texas – with offices in Illinois and Kansas.
Logistics is in Nicole’s DNA having held several operational positions for a variety of transportation brokerage companies over the years. Through these roles she learned the nuts and bolts of moving freight along with the biggest challenges both shippers and carriers face each day. In 2008 Nicole moved to the sales side of the business, working her way up to president of K & L Freight Management, Inc., and in 2016 became head of Cherry Logistics Corporation.
After 20+ years of working for others, Nicole wanted to build her own team. With her strong network and excellent industry reputation, it wasn’t long before Candor became one of the top transportation companies in the business - known for its hot shot ground, high touch, time sensitive shipments and white glove delivery services. Nicole credits her success with an amazing team that consistently provides superior customer service, real-time updates, precision, and open communication.
