ACERTUS announced the promotion of two key executives on its leadership team:
• Rich Pinnock has been promoted to Senior Vice President, Drive Away.
• Alisha Buelt has been promoted to Vice President, Strategic Services.
Pinnock will lead ACERTUS’ Drive Away division in the US and Canada. A nearly 20-year veteran of the logistics and fleet management industry, he has significant experience in many key disciplines of the business, including information technology, operations and compliance. He previously was responsible for information technology and strategic accounts for AmeriFleet prior to it being acquired by ACERTUS.
“Beyond being highly experienced and uniquely accomplished in the industry, Rich is decidedly respected by our employees and customers alike,” said William Billiter, ACERTUS co-founder and CEO. “I can think of no better leader to continue the growth and success of this key ACERTUS division.”
A veteran of the automotive logistics industry, Buelt has held many roles with ACERTUS, most recently serving as Director of Operations. In that role, she focused on managing and streamlining the company’s Drive Away service out of its Alpharetta, Georgia location. In her new role as Vice President of Strategic Services, she will focus primarily on ACERTUS’ rapidly growing Title and Registration service line.
“Alisha is undoubtedly one of our company’s rising stars,” said Billiter. “I’ve worked closely with her for nearly 15 years, and it’s been a pleasure to watch her learn the business from the ground up and become the proven leader that she is today. I have no doubt that she will continue to play a critical role for us for many years to come.”
