Aim Transportion Solutions Names Slater VP, Corporate Controller

GIRARD, Ohio – Aim Transportation Solutions this week announced the promotion of Paul Slater to vice president, corporate controller. Since joining Aim in 2000, Slater has been instrumental in all of Aim’s accounting functions while being an invaluable leader for several departments, including billing, accounts payable, accounts receivable and collections, and licensing and permitting.

In this expanded role, Slater will be responsible for planning, directing and coordinating all accounting operational functions. These responsibilities include vital financial functions such as reviewing acquisitions and mergers, generating annual budgets, and overseeing external audits and government compliance.

“I feel blessed to work alongside our terrific employees here at Aim in an expanded role,” says Slater. “I am excited for the future, and I believe our company is well positioned to continue the upward trajectory we are currently on in the transportation and logistical services industry.”

“Aim has been like a second home to me over these 23 years,” he adds. “We have owners who truly care for our employees and who are committed to keeping our organization healthy and viable for the future.”

“For more than two decades, Paul has been vital to Aim—vital to our day-to-days, vital to our ongoing growth and expansion, and vital to the people he leads,” sayd Aim Co-President Geoff Fleming. “Paul is as dedicated and enthusiastic as he knowledgeable and resourceful, which, given Paul’s impressive achievements and experience, says it all.”

In the 23 years since Paul Slater joined the company, Aim has experienced tremendous growth. From locations across the country, around 1,000 Aim employees serve a large, diverse, ever expanding customer base, which comprises an Aim fleet of more than 11,000 vehicles.

Slater’s educational journey began in 1990 after graduating Grove City College with a BA in accounting, and nine years later he would go on to obtain his master’s degree. But the voyage didn’t end there. Slater is also a Certified Public Accountant and a Chartered Global Management Accountant.

Eventually, in 2005, Slater, with such a strong knowledge and command of his craft, would begin teaching college classes. He currently teaches at Malone University in Canton where in 2020 he was promoted to senior adjunct instructor.

On top of all his commitments, Slater serves as an alumni mentor at his alma mater, and he has been an Aim United Way Pacesetter Committee member for several years, supporting Aim’s many community outreach efforts.
