Shapiro, a 99-year-old global transportation and regulatory compliance provider, is proud to welcome back, after a 20-year hiatus, Deborah Sadler to the Director of Compliance role at its headquarters in Baltimore, MD.

“Debbie comes to us with a wealth of knowledge and experience in both import and export regulations; a determined eye on ensuring processes are as efficient as possible; and a relentless hunger to educate our customers and our remarkable team,” said Margie Shapiro, Shapiro’s president and chief executive officer. “I could not be more excited about her return.”

Sadler originally worked for Shapiro under the leadership’s second-generation, Sigmund Shapiro, as manager of the BWI Airport operations program. Following Shapiro, Sadler served in a State-appointed position with BWI Airport formulating policy to promote commerce and trade development on behalf of the Maryland Department of Transportation’s Foreign-Trade Zone program. Subsequently, Debbie established her own very successful full-service logistics company called Mid-Atlantic Trade Services.  She has also served as an independent contractor of brokerage and logistics consulting services for a multitude of importers and exporters.

In her new role as Director of Compliance, Sadler will be responsible for maintaining and further enhancing Shapiro’s high operational and compliance standards.  Additionally, Sadler will oversee Shapiro’s consulting division, which includes services such as auditing services, regulatory advisories, and employee and customer training.

“Working under Sigmund Shapiro provided a unique opportunity to develop my passion for logistics,” says Sadler.  “It is with tremendous enthusiasm that I have returned under Margie’s third-generation of leadership and I look forward to leading the charge in regulatory compliance for such a reputable and established organization.”
