Meet our brilliant team
We have an amazing team at Orbis International, who have come from different backgrounds. With over 30-year combined knowledge and expertise in Freight Industry, they all have one common drive and ambition - to be the best.
Being a customer centric team, we are here when you need us. This is something you would expect from our Time Critical and Exhibition & Event Logistics Team, but this is an ethos that runs through our general cargo divisions too, be it Air, Ocean or Road.
An excellent relationship is built of the foundation of trust, which is an amalgamation of transparency and communication, leading on to reliability, and that is what you get from the team at Orbis.
Director and owner of Orbis International, husband and a dad of two, Sean has over 20 years freight forwarding industry experience bringing a wealth of knowledge to the ever-changing world of supply chain. Transparent communication and a drive for success was the dream that led him into creating Orbis International. In his downtime, Sean supports his favourite football club (LFC) and Green Bay Packers, enjoys good food, and a odd recreational pint with friends and family.
Starting out as an Export Clerk, Diego draws on nearly a decade of freight forwarding experience to now manage the head office in Newark and enjoys coaching the other members of the Orbis team. On a daily basis he can be found wearing many hats: pricing, ops, client liaison and project management to name a few. Despite these numerous accolades, Diego is still the butt of office jokes and is the only Orbis employee who knows how to fix the printer. He enjoys listening to rock music, searching for the perfect IPA and supplementing his wardrobe with grandad fleeces and anything from Carhartt.
Sam brings a genuine passion for people alongside his dedication to providing the best service possible. He started his forwarding career at one of the top NVOCC’s in the UK where he cut his teeth learning Sea freight, out of gauge, and project work. After travelling around the UK and Europe in various freight roles, he added Air freight expertise to his repertoire since joining Orbis in 2019. Sam continues to lead our Import team, bringing organisation and calm to a demanding section of the company.
Keen traveller, husband and sports-enthusiast, outside of work Sam enjoys spending time with his family, friends and dog. He is an avid film-buff and enjoys playing football, squash and kayaking.
The newbie - an enthusiastic learner with a keen attention to detail Jack is in his first year in the industry after graduating from university in 2021, with a degree in Business Management and Marketing. Since joining last summer, he has been learning the ropes under the expert guidance of colleagues Sam and Diego; focusing primarily on air imports and exports.
In his spare time Jack enjoys F1, old school hip-hop, and buying trainers. Jack does not enjoy following Chesterfield FC, but does it anyway; you can’t help where you’re born.
