“Mitch England has been the vice president of human resources for almost two years and has been instrumental in creating a strong HR department," said Josh England, president. “He’s also made very significant contributions to the company in other positions since he began full-time eight years ago. With Mitch in his new role, the company gains a strong advocate for drivers.”
Mitch England has been with the company since 2007 holding such positions as vice president of human resources, director of maintenance support and director of fuel. In his new position, England will oversee the payroll, independent contractor, driver advocates and reception groups.
