Having an extensive background in logistics and finance helps Mr. Blake Sherwood create smooth operations for the challenging supply chain transactions. Mr. Sherwood has lived in Asia, and he speaks Mandarin; he understands the intricacies of international markets and how to overcome the challenges of working across the globe. Prior to his current position at NIXCOVID, Mr. Sherwood played a critical role in ensuring the State of Illinois amongst others to source key PPE products during the most critical stages of the Covid 19 pandemic.
Kathryn Bonesteel, the CEO and Co-Founder of NIXCOVID quotes: "Through this strategic partnership, we will have a strong and secure PPE distribution in the US. We are very excited and grateful that Mr. Blake Sherwood will manage the Supply Chain Logistics as our partner. With his extensive skills and background in the sector, NIXCOVID will ramp up growth of its operations even further, and create amazing synergies; provide certified supplies directly for state governments, hospitals, and Fortune 500 essential workforces in the most successful and timely manner.”
Mr. Sherwood utilizes his extensive research and experience in the PPE acquisition and delivery. Last year in March 2020 during the peak of the pandemic, he brought in 10 million PPE products through his partnership with Shambliss Security LLC. Shambliss was recognized by the State of Illinois for a completion of this successful delivery during lockdown.
Mr. Sherwood said: “I needed to make this transaction happen because it was just unfair that the nurses were stapling used masks on TV. I knew something had to be done to ensure safe, timely, secure PPEs, and I had access to these kinds of transactions through my local Chinese partner, who had already sent 500 pieces of PPE to my family for protection from COVID 19 as a personal gesture.
Mr. Sherwood added :” The PPEs were produced in factories across China. Together with Shambliss, we brought in 10 million pieces of PPE ranging from Face Shields, Gowns to Hand Sanitizers which was delivered to the State of Illinois (IEMA). Together with NIXCOVID, we will ensure high standards and quality of certified PPE deliveries for the frontline essential workforces. "
