Madison Who’s Who wants to be the first to congratulate Mr. Gleeson on this achievement by notifying his peers that Mr. Gleeson has in fact reached a level of recognizable success in his professional field of Shipping. 

Mr. Gleeson serves as Director of Freightplus (Australia) Pty Ltd. and all Freightplus companies globally. Providing the visionary, mature leadership, management and guidance, he is responsible for strategic growth and global development with overall responsibility for the Company’s offices and agencies across the Far East, Middle East, Central Asia, Russia/CIS, North Asia and Europe. His broad expanse of experience spread over some 25 years, his success in managing global businesses and his exposure to an international environment and the backing of an expert team of professionals enables him to efficiently handle his divergent duties. Securing an enviable reputation with a proven track record, Mr. Gleeson’s career portfolio includes such positions as managing director/general manager/regional manager for Meadows Freight in Australia and New Zealand. Encouraging a culture which upholds the highest possible autarky and transparency in all deals and transactions, Mr. Gleeson has gained the respect of his peers and trust of clients in services tendered by the Company. He attributes his success to the knowledge he’s acquired over the years, surrounding himself with good people, being a good listener, taking calculated risks and trying to contribute more to every transaction than he takes out of it. Reflecting professionalism, experience, integrity, stewardship, perseverance and commitment, Mr. Gleeson plans to remain in his leadership role for now and eventually take more of a backseat as senior management in the organization are being developed for partnerships and directorial roles. Using a plan for organized growth, he participated in opening offices in Amsterdam, Netherlands in 2005; Kobe, Japan in 2006; Jakarta, Indonesia in 2006 and Hamburg, Germany in 2006. In 2007, an office in United States will be opened.
