# 20 (IP): Colin Igoe, CDM, Worldpay

*Special for IP Partners

Meet Colin Igoe.  He’s a CDM, Channel Development Manager for Worldpay.  Recently in our partner hub, Advantage Crew, we asked our partners to nominate someone, anyone, who they’d like to have featured in an upcoming podcast.  Colin was nominated and after reading all of the other praises that partners have shared about him, the deal was sealed.

We learned a lot about Colin beyond his professional outlook behind his commitment to seeing his partners succeed; we also learned about his past as a Division 1 Lacrosse player, some hurdles in life that he’s overcome, the great advice he received from his father, and his number one must-read book.

A special thank you to Colin for his time, and to Ashley Huff, the partner who recommended this interview!  Enjoy!

Michael Basch was a founding officer of FedEx, where he spent 10 years as Senior Vice President.

Basch led the teams that invented Fedex’s bar code tracing system, built its SuperHub, and founded the FedEx Logistics Division. Before joining FedEx, Basch spent eight years with UPS in Sales, Personnel, Operations, and Industrial Engineering. After leaving FedEx, he founded and served as President of Service Impact, a firm specializing in advancing the art, science, and practice of leadership. He is currently Chief Information Officer at Enalasys Corporation, a company based in Calexico, CA that develops advanced energy management system solutions that enable governments and utilities to manage energy usage in homes and small businesses.

In this episode, Mark Cafiero (Vantiv) interviews Mike from an interesting perspective; Mark was paired up with Mike as a child as part of the YMCA Big Brother Big Sister program.  We hope you enjoy a more personal interview with one of the most inventive thinkers behind FedEx.
