Berger, Aim’s First Employee and VP, to Retire

GIRARD, Ohio – After 29 years with the company, Aim Integrated Logistics’ vice president of operations, Bruce Berger, will retire next month. Berger was the company’s first employee, hired as purchasing and warranty manager.

“Bruce Berger has been an integral part of Aim’s growth and success over the years. His insight, experience, and knowledge of logistics has assisted Aim and many of our customers in finding success,” said Aim President Tom Fleming. “We could always count Bruce to jump right in to do whatever was necessary to solve a problem. I wish him a happy healthy and long retirement.

As vice president of operations, Berger oversees the company’s supply chain functions, which includes more than 500 drivers.

“I am proud to have worked side-by-side with Bruce for the past eight years, said David Gurska, vice president and chief operating officer. “He has had an outstanding 30-year career at Aim. He has been integral in the company’s growth.”

In his retirement, Berger says he will “spend more quality time with my wife and daughter and enjoy the beautiful Florida weather,” as well as fit in more time to golf, fish and cycle.

“I appreciate the opportunities that I have been afforded and have tried to make the best of them. It’s been my honor to be a part of the integrated division and appreciate all the hard work and dedication of everyone at Integrated, every day, in order to service the needs of our customers,” he said. “I feel it’s time to step back and let the next generation take the controls. They will do well. I ask that they don’t forget the past as they look to the future.”
