Aim Promotes Durkin to Chief Human Resources Officer

GIRARD, Ohio — Aim Transportation Solutions announced this week that Patty Durkin has been named chief human resources officer. 

Since Durkin began her career at Aim in 2006 as human resources manager, she has made a positive, long-lasting impact, the company said. Four years after she was hired, Durkin was named vice president of human resources, and now is advancing to chief human resources officer.

Durkin has successfully implemented employee benefits and career development programs, promoted a positive, inclusive work culture and invested in the health and wellness of every Aim employee, according to Scott Fleming, Aim co-president.

“Patty came on board in 2006, back when we were a company of 300 employees,” Fleming says. “Today we have well over 1,000 employees, and I truly believe that no company reaches this level of growth without a cornerstone like Patty.”

Durkin’s new responsibilities will include the rollout of a fresh, more uniform customer service program. She will continue to be involved in Aim’s recruiting efforts while working with her team to maintain the high quality of Aim’s employee programs and benefits.

“I’m honored by the promotion, and I feel blessed to work at Aim,” Durkin says. “It just shows the level of respect and appreciation Aim ownership shows to our work.”

Durkin holds a bachelor’s degree in human resources and an associate degree in business management from Youngstown State University. She is a graduate of Ursuline High School and the Choffin Career Center legal/medical secretary program.

She serves on the board of the United Way of Youngstown and the Mahoning Valley, chairs its human resource committee and is on Aim’s United Way pacemaker committee. She is also a member of the Western Reserve Chapter of the Society for Human Resource Management.

Durkin lives in Ellsworth with her husband, Rick, and enjoys audiobooks, the beach, consignment shopping and family life. She cherishes her Catholic faith and is heavily involved with St. Paul’s Monastery in Ellsworth as well as her home parish, Corpus Christi, in Conneaut.
