Bill Fahrenwald


Bill Fahrenwald is a supply chain, transportation, and logistics marketing expert. He is a well-known author, speaker, and communications consultant.

Bill's insights are the result of his experience as rail industry reporter, transportation publication editor, plus founding member and past president of the Transportation Marketing and Sales Association (TMSA).

He has planned and hosted informative webinars, media panels, and logistics trade presentations. Bill is certified in Inbound Marketing with HubSpot, and is highly recommended by peers and clients for his media relations and strategic communications skills.

Bill’s greatest asset may be his ability to listen to an avalanche of information, and then quickly find the key pieces to craft an effective message and strategy for each individual client. As an alderman for our City of Blue Island, he knows how to bring people out of their silos to achieve results that cut through the red tape.
