Change Makers | AIM Transportation Solutions

Since the early 1980s, Tom Fleming, founder and CEO of AIM Transportation Solutions has worked with the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley. It’s something he’s instilled in his sons, Geoffrey and Scott, co-presidents of the company.

“It’s been a great thing to be part of and to also see the changes that the United Way has effected,” Fleming said.

The two younger Flemings were taught to give back not just because it feels good, but because “it’s just the right thing to do,” Scott Fleming says. They and their employees donate to United Way and other area organizations.

“In the end, we are a community,” Scott says. “And the United Way is one thing that brings the community together.”

“Everyone here is really proud of where they’re from and it’s really one great way to say ‘United Way has helped us remain proud of where we are in our hometown,’ ” adds Geoffrey.
