Aim Transportation Solutions Names Svancara COO

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Aim Transportation Solutions, a family-owned and operated provider of commercial fleet service, this week announced the appointment of Matt Svancara to chief operating officer. With an extraordinary track record of success, a wealth of experience and a deep understanding of the intricacies of the transportation industry, Svancara is poised to play an even more important role in Aim’s ongoing growth, expansion and overall success, the company said.

In his new position, Svancara will oversee six essential arms of the business: sales, maintenance, rental, marketing, ProShop and asset purchasing.

Svancara has been with Aim for nearly three decades, starting his career in sales and steadily climbing to his most recent position as executive vice president of sales and marketing. Throughout this time, Matt has routinely demonstrated his natural leadership skills, his keen eye for the big picture, his scrupulous attention to detail, his strength of character (perhaps shining brightest in times of hardship), and his unparalleled warmth and attentiveness toward his team members, customers and vendors. It’s because of these qualities that Aim’s ownership believes Svancara is the perfect choice to fill this critical role as Aim’s new COO.

“For nearly 30 years, I’ve watched Matt earn his way to the top, all the while never failing to put the best interests of the company above all else,” says Tom Fleming, Aim’s founder, chairman and CEO. “When I think of Matt, I think of loyalty, dedication and hard work, and these characteristics, along with his strategic vision and commitment to excellence, will serve him and the company well as Aim’s new COO.”

“I am incredibly grateful to the Fleming family for entrusting me with the role of COO, and their belief in my abilities is both inspiring and humbling,” says Svancara. “I am committed to upholding the legacy of excellence they have built, and with their support, I am excited to lead our organization into a new era of growth and prosperity.”

Svancara holds a B.A. in finance and an MBA from Baldwin Wallace University. He has been in the commercial transportation business for more than 35 years. He began his Aim career in 1996 as a district manager and would go on to earn a series of promotions.
