JMN Transportation recently announced that as a result of increased growth, the company created a transportation manager position that has been filled by Alex Vedder, who transitioned from his previous role as regional manager of JMN’s Georgia locations.
In his new role as transportation manager, Vedder will be tasked with overseeing the operational and financial elements of the JMN’s fleet division and directly connecting with the company’s customers to build and maintain positive working relations, according to JMN.
“Alex has demonstrated his ability to get the job done year in and year out,” JMN owner and chief executive officer Jon Nuckolls said. “His loyalty and dedication, coupled with his extensive knowledge should acclimate Alex into his new role quickly.”
Vedder has more than 25 years of experience within the transportation industry and has spent 9 with JMN. Throughout his career, he has held positions such as regional inventory manager and operations manager with various auto hauler companies.
Additionally, JMN has had a recent uptick in recruiting and adopted several other new positions. The company said the recent opening of multiple Drive Away locations has generated more than 150 new employees since this past August.
