In 1984, the founder of Reilly International was an ambitious 22- year old with an innate understanding of people, an uncanny business sense and a strong drive to turn her passion for helping others into her life’s work. In addition, Vickie Reilly possessed another rare quality for her age—a thorough understanding of US customs regulations.
At 21, Vickie became the youngest individual to have ever received a US Customs Broker’s License. Just one year later, with $1,500 and a dining room table for an office, Reilly International was born.
Soon, clients began inquiring about additional services, encouraging the company to, among other things, begin arranging the transportation of imports.
To satisfy the needs of her clients, Vickie traveled across the globe looking to establish worldwide partnerships with other high-quality companies fostering the expansion of new services.
Today, Reilly International’s headquarters is located in a 42,000 sq. ft. facility complete with its own warehouse, and shows no signs of slowing down, as evidenced by the 2013 expansion into the Southeastern US with their Charlotte, NC office. While you probably won’t see Vickie riding around on a moped anymore, the company is still proud to operate around her same original vision—truly understanding the needs of each client, providing an unparalleled level of service and continuing to find innovate ways of making it easier for you.
