Amine Khechfe has been advising e-commerce businesses – both large and small – for the past 25-plus years. Together with his graduate professor, Harry Whitehouse, he co-founded Endicia (an e-commerce shipping company) in 1987.
Under Amine’s leadership, Endicia has grown dramatically and broadened its offerings while maintaining its culture of strong innovation. The company now accounts for 65 percent of the shipping labels printed in the United States, and its customers have printed a cumulative total of more than $10 billion in online postage. Endicia was acquired by Newell Rubbermaid in 2007, and Amine retains an active role in the day-to-day operation of the business.
With his finger on the pulse of the latest e-commerce and shipping trends, Amine brings a wealth of knowledge to the businesses he consults, helping customers streamline their shipping and expand to new markets internationally.
Prior to working with Endicia, Amine held a variety of management roles in engineering, management consulting, software development, marketing, business development and sales engineering. He is a graduate of Stanford University with a Master of Science in Engineering.
