LIMA, PA – April 4, 2018 – Pilot Freight Services (Pilot), a worldwide provider of transportation and logistics services, recently promoted two team members as part of Pilot’s continued growth and expanded advancements in international markets, e-commerce, and more. Liz Beck and John Pang have both been appointed regional vice presidents in Detroit and Los Angeles, respectively and will actively manage the regional managers within their territories.
In Detroit, Liz Beck will oversee Pilot’s central region managers. Beck started with Pilot as a local sales rep in San Francisco in 2002. She’s worked in Pilot’s Chicago station, bringing in major accounts before moving on to Detroit where she grew into the role of sales manager and ultimately district manager. During her time managing the Detroit station, it has been one of Pilot’s fastest growing stations in domestic and international freight earning Beck internal awards including the Chairman’s Circle and Diamond Station recognition.
John Pang has also been named a regional vice president overseeing the western region managers, based out of Los Angeles. Pang has been with Pilot for 19 years and has run their largest volume operation, LAX, as district manager since 2009. Under Pang’s management, the Los Angeles operation has grown yearly in one of the most competitive and expensive markets in the U.S. due to his solid operations performance and dependability. A Certified Cargo Screening Facility and located minutes from the airport, the 105,000-square-foot LAX warehouse serves 10 counties in California.
“We pride ourselves on creating an environment that encourages growth and camaraderie. It’s part of our ongoing commitment to develop talent from within,” said Gordon Branov, CEO of Pilot Freight Services. “As we prepare for significant growth this year, I’m confident that both Liz and John will direct our regional managers with the same tenacity and commitment to Pilot’s success that have been characteristic of their own achievements in the company.”
