“This is the best drink you could actually drink. Think about it: you have water and vodka,” Andrew said as we sat at Goldie’s Sports Bar in North Scottsdale. “What else could there be? 100 calories a drink… perfect.”

In 2003, as a 23 year old back home from his time in the Navy, Andrew Leto witnessed the antiquities of the trucking business while working for his dad’s small freight company. As he watched deals being brokered by phone, he thought that there must be a better way, leading him to create it.

GlobalTranz is the 5th largest privately held company in Arizona today and has become the Priceline of trucking, a solution Andrew developed to meet the needs of a less manual freight management process. Following a successful exit, he has now founded EmergeTMS which provides a platform for large companies to manage all of their freight.

Watch as Andrew introduces me to his go-to 2-ingredient cocktails, inspired by his time in the Navy, and talks about the quirks of a big Italian family, plays some Weezer on the acoustic guitar and gets a little surprise visit.
