(KNSI) — A local mainstay with Anderson Trucking Services is retiring in January after 30 years with the company.
A press release from ATS says Gary Stang started with the firm in 1993 in customer service at K&W Transportation in Alaska, a wholly-owned subsidiary of ATS. He returned to St. Cloud later that year. He worked in several roles with the company, including the vans and brokerage businesses, before being named CEO of ATS network company Warren Transport in 2014 and President of the Specialized Carriers & Riggers Association in 2018-2019, and Chairman of the organization in 2019-2020. Stang is currently the General Manager of the ATS Specialized division.
“I am truly blessed to have been able to work for the gold standard in transportation throughout my career,” Stang said. “From the talented people that have surrounded me to the guiding values and deep care for employees and drivers through the Anderson Assistance Foundation; these reflect the truly unique level of excellence and caring company that ATS is. I could not have asked for a better place to spend my career.”
“Gary’s leadership and engaging style has made such a difference in the lives and careers of so many people, both within the Anderson Family of Companies and throughout the transportation industry,” said ATS President Brent Anderson. “While we are very grateful for his service and loyalty to ATS and are thrilled for him as he retires, Gary and his family will always be a part of the Anderson Family of Companies. He will be missed.”
