Information According to the evidence submitted at trial and plea papers filed in the case, from 2000 to September 2004, Musacchio was the president of Exel Transportation Services, a third party logistics or intermodal transportation company that facilitated links between shippers and common carriers in the manufacturing, retail, and consumer industries. In 2004, Musacchio left Exel to form a competing company, Total Transportation Services, where he was the original president and CEO. Two other former Exel employees from the Exel Information Technology IT Department, Brown and Kelly, also went to work at Musacchio’s new company. Between 2004 and 2006, Musacchio and Brown, assisted by Kelly, engaged in a scheme to hack into Exel’s computer system to conduct corporate espionage. Through their repeated unauthorized accesses into Exel’s e-mail accounts, co-conspirators Musacchio and Brown were able to obtain Exel’s confidential and proprietary business information and use it to benefit their new employer and themselves as investors.
