MISSISSAUGA, ON, Dec. 2, 2014 /CNW/ - The management at Polaris Transportation Group is excited to announce the appointment of David Bush as VP of Business Processes. The newly created position will focus on improvements to the U.S. infrastructure for the fast growing, Transborder LTL carrier.
As a Canadian based operation, Polaris saw a need to add a senior person with a strong U.S. carrier background. President Larry Cox explains, "David Bush came to us through our partnership with his former employer. He's great with detail and has a comprehensive blend of ops, sales, technology and carrier relationship experience. He is the ideal candidate to fine tune and expand the U.S markets we serve."
David's past career accomplishments have seen him in senior roles with A. Duie Pyle, Translogistics and most recently with Land Air Express. David's new position will see him on the road extensively as he assesses and implements the changes he feels will boost Polaris's position in the U.S. David states, "I've been told I'm relentless when I come across something that isn't working like it should. I have always been able to see the broken links in processes and operational procedures and I don't give in until they're fixed and working properly."
David resides in Birdsboro PA, a small community of 5,166 people and as a point of interest, hometown to YouTube founder Chad Hurley. Dave Cox, EVP & COO at Polaris states, "David Bush and I hit it off immediately. He was great to work with as a carrier partner and he liked our company's business approach as well. When the opportunity came up to bring him on as a VP with our company, we jumped at it."
David Bush starts his new career with Polaris Transportation Group on December 8, 2014. At this time, he will be based out of Birdsboro and his immediate plans include a trip to meet the Polaris Team at their head office facility in Mississauga, Ontario, previous to the holiday season.
