Lewis took his experience from small shop to billion-dollar brokerages and his work ethic of going above and beyond for customers to drive the success of Fetch Freight. His team brokers shipments for national enterprise brands while tailoring local and regional deals for customers of all sizes, including multiple Fortune 500 shippers, with a 60% increase in volume year over year. Fetch Freight is an organically grown rising national leader and freight brokerage, brokering shipments for national enterprise brands, and its revenue tripled from $7.7 million in 2021 to $23 million in 2022. 

When asked what he’s most proud of in his career, Lewis responded with, “Fetch Freight and the team that we have assembled over the past three years. They’ve come alongside me as we’ve built this company from the ground up to become one of the nation’s fastest growing freight brokerages.”

When he’s not working hands-on with his team in the newly restored, historic office building in downtown Birmingham, Lewis spends his time with his wife Maggie, chasing their three boys from one sporting event to the next. He enjoys hunting, flying and visits to Athens to cheer on his alma mater. He serves as a deacon at Faith Presbyterian Church, and he is heavily involved in his community and neighborhood.

As Lewis continues to grow Fetch Freight, his values remain the same: build strong partnerships, innovative solutions, and exceed expectations.
