Our Clients, Service Providers, colleagues and Advisors are consistently commenting and praising our Leadership Team for what we already know is the single largest differentiator of our business and most essential to our collective achievement of building a truly world class company from the top to the bottom. Not only do we have our very first Client of over 20 years, we also have our first employee with us today. Although we have grown relentlessly, nearly all of the original dozen individuals remain as pillars of Argus. The uncommon degree of trust, loyalty, humility, shared vision, work ethic, collaboration and respect is to such extreme is truly rare. This spirit has permeated our entire culture which affords us the additional advantage of being able to attract the absolute best professionals to our Firm as we have thoughtfully built out our next generation Leadership which is certain to be of equal caliber.
Jeff Lau (AKA. “The General”) graciously leads Argus where he oversees all aspects of business operations. Jeff has served in many roles within Argus over the past 15 years including the establishment of our Intra-European operations, Intra-Mexico operations and Asian operations.
Jeff has pioneered the enduring and evolving core operating procedures of Argus including the client engagement, carrier and service provider interactions. He has overseen internal accountability and has been the key architect in establishing the way that Argus Solutions does business and provides customer service, which has clearly differentiated our service offerings as the best in class. Jeff has been the operational lead in diversifying our client base that had traditionally been over reliant on the automotive sector.
Today Argus has evolved its business to include clients in health and beauty aids, retail, home appliances, energy, heavy manufacturing, IT, chemical, after market and publishing to name a few. Because of his vision Jeff has proudly evolved into the face of Argus and an internal and external leader for the company. Jeff entered the world of full platform logistics management after earning his degree at Western Michigan University before moving into a very successful tenure within the less than truckload sector.
Aside from his passion for the Argus family, Jeff’s heart clearly resides with his entire family and spends all of his free time with his wife, son, daughter and his extended family. Jeff quietly and often anonymously supports many philanthropic efforts within his community.
