AFS Welcomes New Chief Commercial Officer

Melissa Somsen, AFS’s new Chief Commercial Officer

Scottie Sheffler won the Masters and Rich Strike won the Kentucky Derby.

But we feel like the real winners thanks to the addition of Melissa Somsen, AFS’s new Chief Commercial Officer.

For the past 29 years Melissa has held several roles in sales leadership with Overnite Transportation, TForce Freight (formerly UPS Freight), UPS, and Forward Air. Prior to that, she worked in operations and sales at Burlington Air Express.

A proud mother of two and grandmother of one, she resides in Atlanta with her husband Sean.

We’re excited to add someone of her caliber to our leadership team. Welcome to #TeamAFS, Melissa!
