Career Highlights ~

Judy is an accomplished professional who has built a career that spans US and global trade compliance, multi-modal transportation operations and security regulations. She has often used her aptitude for teaching to develop technical documentation and concise instructional materials.

Judy began that career working for SeaLand Services, a US flagged ocean carrier. (Sealand was purchased by Maersk in 1999). Learning about compliance requirements, transportation regulations and supply chain security at the ocean carrier operational level has given her a unique perspective of the big picture in global trade. She has since worked for multi-national companies, small organizations, and freight forwarders. As managing partner of the WatsonDavis team she worked to apply the best organizational standards and individual integrity to the complicated new demands of mandatory air cargo screening implemented as a result of 9/11. This strategic analysis led to the establishment of an independent cargo screening facility that could meet the volume demands of x-ray and explosive trace detection screening at DFW International Airport.

Her ultimate objective sees the future of creating a functional compliance environment that keeps the supply chain moving at the velocity needed for today’s business.
