Sales; Founder & Executive Director Ingram Barge Company; WIMOs

Kasey Eckstein works in sales at Ingram Barge Company and is the Executive Director of WIMOs Association. Kasey's career in the marine industry began in 2014 when she started selling barge freight at Marquette Transportation. Marquette was a company that Kasey's grandfather founded and she realized that she was given many opportunities that other women in the industry were not. In 2017, Kasey founded WIMOs Association, which is an organization for Women In Maritime Operations. WIMOs works to Educate, Engage and Elevate women working for maritime operators and just four years since its foundation the organization is approaching 500 individual members (110+ member companies) nationwide. Kasey was the youngest Director to ever sit on the board of the Mississippi Valley Trade & Transport Council and she was a recipient of the Inland Marine Expo's 40 Under 40 award in 2018.
