Christopher Che

Christopher Che is President and CEO of the Che International Group, LLC (CIG), which he founded in 2005. CIG is a multi-national holding company that identifies, acquires, supports, and grows scalable subsidiary companies in diverse industries through startups, strategic acquisitions, joint ventures, and alliances, to help customers maximize supply chain diversity while promoting supply chain excellence. Christopher is an accountant by profession and a veteran Senior Financial Executive with over 35 years of vast and dynamic business management experience.

 

CIG’s subsidiary acquisition experience includes Hooven-Dayton Corporation (HDC), high-quality prime product labels, flexible packaging, promotional coupons, and specialty printing solutions (2007); Digital Color International, LLC (DCI), point of purchase/entry display, specialty folding cartons, and commercial offset print and bindery (2011);

a controlling interest in Cog, LLC, customized graphics production solutions (2012), and chairman of TrueChoicePack Corporation (TCP), manufacturer and distributor of traditional and green private label and customized packaging and disposable products (2014). After successful exponential growth—HDC grew over 300% in 10 years, DCI tripled growth in five years, and Cog and TCP each grew over 3000%—CIG divested all of its Packaging Holdings to focus on Global Supply Chain Excellence for customers across multiple industries including Healthcare, Logistics, Technology, and Telecom.

 

Consistent with his vision to influence global supply chain excellence, Christopher founded Transworld Supply Network (TSN) in 2018 and Transworld Delivery Corporation (TDC) in 2020. Originating primarily as a medical supplies, products, and equipment company, TSN has evolved into an innovative central marketplace, a multiproduct, multi-division, multi-industry business-to-business, and global supply sourcing enterprise. Powered by transparent Alliance Partnerships with First-class Industry Leaders, TSN is now the Source for Medical Supplies, Products, & Equipment (accounts for 10% of PPE supplies in the U.S.); Industrial & Safety Supplies &

Equipment; Building Maintenance & Janitorial Supplies; Construction Supplies; Marketing & Communications

Products & Services, Warehousing, Fulfillment & Logistics Services, Sustainable and Biodegradable Food Packaging, and Retail Packaging. TDC is an Amazon-branded Delivery Service Provider (DSP), a last-mile delivery company that quickly grew to over 25 delivery vehicles with 50 employees by the end of 2020. TDC is forecasted to exceed 50 vehicles and 100 employees by the end of 2021 and will continue to expand in the Logistics space through acquisitions.

 

As President and CEO of CIG, Christopher’s responsibilities include setting strategy and vision, building cohesive executive teams that will lead the company to the next level, creating a positive culture of sustainable growth, and properly allocating capital resources. CIG’s rapid expansion has resulted in its being recognized by Black Enterprise Magazine as a 2012 BE 100s company, one of the nation’s largest black-owned enterprises, and by Inc. Magazine as a 2012 Inc. 500|5000 company, one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S.

Competitiveness from 2011 to 2012, board member of the Ohio Minority Supplier Development Council, the

Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce, the African American CEO Roundtable of Cincinnati, the Federal

Reserve Bank of Cleveland, the Dayton Area Business Advisory Council, and chairing the Ohio Minority Business
