Automotive logistics provider ACERTUS has appointed Jason Onsen to chief financial officer. Onsen previously served in top finance roles for Amazon and for St. George Logistics.
In his most recent role as vice president and corporate controller for St. George Logistics, Onsen led a 30-person finance team at five locations, built transaction-based models to validate direct costs, and integrated five acquisitions.
Prior to serving in that role for St. George Logistics, Onsen was finance leader at e-commerce marketplace, Amazon. Onsen financially managed the last mile delivery and middle mile transportation networks for that company.
Onsen was previously with Caterpillar for nine years, serving in various positions before becoming senior vice president of Neovia, formally Caterpillar Logistics. At Neovia, a $1 billion business, he reported directly to the chief financial officer, overseeing a team of 100 employees in nine countries.
“Jason’s financial and logistics background, combined with his extensive experience scaling innovative companies, will be tremendously valuable in our next phase of growth as we further our mission to provide a complete, end-to-end automotive logistics offering,” ACERTUS co-founder and chief executive officer William Billiter said in a news release.
“As ACERTUS continues to grow rapidly, we saw the need to level up our management team to support current and future expansion. His global experience will benefit our customers and employees, and I have no doubt what he brings to the table aligns well with our culture. We are thrilled to have him on board," Billiter continued.
