Mabel, District Manager
A U.S. Customs Broker since 1994, Mabel loves dealing with people and helping customers solve some of their most complicated logistics challenges. Mabel has held various operational positions within the organization allowing her continued career path.
“Having the flexibility has allowed me to progress in my career while also being a good mom, wife and daughter” said Mabel, who came to DB Schenker very interested in pursuing a long-term career in logistics and transportation. Her managers have helped her achieve that goal, all the while understanding her desire to reside in South Florida.
“The fact that I did not have to relocate my family in order to pursue my career goals was instrumental”, said Mabel, who loves to travel and doesn’t mind the regular flights to and from cities like Atlanta and New Orleans. In fact, she said this lifestyle provides a good work-life balance that so many others are seeking.
I don’t like to narrow it down to a single opportunity; I always like to leave my options open, let's see what's next.
As part of her professional growth, Mabel has participated in on-the-job trainings as well as international development training which she calls “one of the most rewarding experiences “ of her life. “Not only did i grow professionally during this journey but I developed amazing friendships with other colleagues from overseas”.
In her current role, Mabel is responsible for DB Schenker’s Southeast Region, where she has many responsibilities, including financial budgets. “From a sales perspective, I maintain customer relationships and work closely with our sales group,” she added.
Never one to limit herself, Mabel said her future career path is “wide open” and could involve any number of advancements or promotions, depending on what opportunities come up. “I don’t like to narrow it down to a single opportunity; I always like to leave my options open,” she said. “Let's see what's next.”
