“Hull is a serial entrepreneur with more than 25 years of experience launching successful companies,” the company said. “Best known as the founder and CEO of Getloaded.com - a company that was sold in 2008 for $75 million - Hull revolutionized the transportation and logistics industry with the creation of a freight matching service for long-haul truckers.
