MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Polaris Transportation Group has added a US-based executive to its management team.

The LTL company is looking to better support its Transborder division, which operates in the US, so it hired David Bush to serve as vice-president of business processes and to oversee the American business.

Based in Birdsboro, Penn., Bush has held senior positions withA. Duie Pyle, Translogistics, and most recently with Land Air Express.

“David Bush came to us through our partnership with his former employer. He’s great with detail and has a comprehensive blend of ops, sales, technology and carrier relationship experience. He is the ideal candidate to fine tune and expand the U.S markets we serve,” said Polaris president Larry Cox.

Bush, who officially starts his new job on December 8, will spend much of his time on the road assessing and updating the company’s operations.

“I’ve been told I’m relentless when I come across something that isn’t working like it should. I have always been able to see the broken links in processes and operational procedures and I don’t give in until they’re fixed and working properly,” said Bush.
