Jake Wittmann
Transportation Intelligence Manager
Growing up in a small farm town in Wisconsin, Jake learned the value of a hard day’s work at a young age by completing chores like picking rocks from fields and driving tractors. Looking to expand his horizons, he left Wisconsin to attend the business school at Miami University (the one in Ohio). On campus, he became fascinated with the world of business and the increasingly important role of big data and technology in driving success.

Growing up in a small farm town in Wisconsin, Jake learned the value of a hard day’s work at a young age by completing chores like picking rocks from fields and driving tractors. Looking to expand his horizons, he left Wisconsin to attend the business school at Miami University (the one in Ohio).  On campus, he became fascinated with the world of business and the increasingly important role of big data and technology in driving success. 
 
After graduating with a degree in Finance and a minor in Statistics, Jake traded the cold of the Midwest for the sunshine state and took his first job in the Logistics industry in Orlando. Over the next few years he held multiple positions, using his analytical and financial acumen to improve processes and expand data visibility. This included systems integration work to increase visibility and communication between the dock, the boardroom, and everywhere in between.
 
Joining Christie Lites in the summer of 2017, Jake’s goal is to establish a best-in-class transportation management system and KPIs. Jake currently lives in downtown Orlando and enjoys his free time cheering for the Green Bay Packers, attending shows, and spending time outdoors.

Kelly became a transportation coordinator for Christie Lites in 2015. In a short period of time, she has learned so much and couldn’t be more happy to be a part of the Transportation team today. She owes a part of her success at Christie Lites to Huntly, who mentored her in some of the most difficult times. Reminding her daily to be adamant in her decisions, and always have a solution! “I don’t care how the clock was made, I just want to know what time it is.” A quote that she will never forget Huntly said and will always have in the back of her mind.
 
In her spare time, Kelly spends most of it with her long term boyfriend, Dustin. Dustin is an active reservist in the United States Marine Corps, and is also pursuing a bachelors degree in aerospace engineering. They take advantage of the time they have together. When they are not working on their home, they enjoy traveling and spending time with their friends & pups.
