AmeriQuest Transportation Services, a provider of fleet management services, named three new vice presidents of financial services – Gary Griffin, Mike Williams and Brian Benicewicz. All three will report to Group Vice President Patrick Gaskins.
Griffin was previously vice president of business development for CURE Leasing & Maintenance, a wholly-owned subsidiary of AmeriQuest Business Services, and a provider of financing and maintenance services to companies using independent contractors as part of their transportation program, the company said. Griffin has more than 34 years of experience in the transportation and truck leasing industry. Prior to joining CURE, he served as director of new business development – national accounts with Ryder System. He has also held sales leadership positions with Freightliner Market Development Corp., GE Transportation Services Group, Penske Truck Leasing, and McDonnell Douglas Truck Leasing, AmeriQuest said.
Williams, who has 10 years of transportation industry experience, joined AmeriQuest Transportation Services in 2010 as director of sales for the south central region and was promoted to senior director of sales in 2014, according to the company. Prior to joining AmeriQuest, he held business development roles with Ryder System and United Rentals.
Benicewicz recently joined AmeriQuest and is a 13-year veteran of the transportation industry, with an expansive background in the transportation and material handling equipment segments for Fortune 500 companies, according to AmeriQuest. Prior to joining AmeriQuest, Benicewicz worked for Cowan Systems, a full service transportation and logistics company with operations through the U. S.
“Our customers are looking for more than just financing options,” Gaskins said. ”In today’s highly competitive business environment, companies need to understand what their fleets are actually costing them and how to manage them more effectively and efficiently. That’s why we offer our customers asset management and fleet planning recommendations based on their own fleet’s data, in addition to a variety of flexible financing options that best meet their specific needs. With the addition of Gary, Mike and Brian, we’ve added to our already experienced team that will help our customers focus on growing their businesses.”
