Trailcon Leasing Promotes Jones to Regional Manager, Western Canada

March 09, 2017, 06:24 AM

Trailcon Leasing announced that Brian Jones has been promoted to Regional Manager, Western Canada. In his new capacity, he will oversee the sales, operations, and administration for Trailcon's three western branches - Surrey, BC; Calgary, AB.; and Edmonton, AB.

Jones joined Trailcon in 2015 as Branch Manager - Surrey. He played a key role in Trailcon's acquisition of the former Stewart Trailers in September 2016, transitioning the new employees into the Trailcon family and enabling the national leader to provide all its customers, nationwide, with one-stop service offerings.

"My objectives within the new role will be to strengthen our relationships among the three branches in Alberta and BC, and offer a more comprehensive service package to our western accounts," says Jones. "With the new shop in Surrey, I'll be able to review the successful growth attributes of both our Calgary and Edmonton locations, as they went through similar experiences of start-ups in the recent past."

Jones will report to President, Al Boughton. "Since Brian joined Trailcon two years ago, he has worked tirelessly to develop and service our accounts in BC," says Boughton. "He will now be able to build upon this success, and provide our customers in Alberta with service offerings that are the best in the industry. As Trailcon celebrates 25 years in business, Brian and his team are well-positioned to propel us into the next 25!"

Dave Ambrock, who was instrumental in the start-up of the Edmonton branch in 2007 and its subsequent growth, will continue his management responsibilities there. Similarly, Calgary Branch Manager Nick Reid, who helped facilitate Trailcon's acquisition of Hubs Trailer Service in 2014, will continue in that capacity. Ambrock and Reid will combine with Jones to grow Trailcon's business in western Canada and contribute to its national presence.

Jones came to Trailcon armed with an H.B.A. (Honours of Business Administration) degree from the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology in Edmonton, and 24 years' experience in a variety of managerial positions in the transportation/trucking industry.
