The Innovators: John Reed

As has become The Business Journal’s custom during the month of May, designated as National Small Business Month, we ask readers to tell us who is worthy of recognition. This time, we asked readers to nominate innovators – the risk takers, out-of-box thinkers and the status quo challengers.

John Reed
CIO and VP of Technology, Aim Transportation Solutions

GIRARD – John Reed oversees the nationally recognized technology team at Aim Transportation Solutions. Under his leadership, Aim was named Commercial Carrier Journal’s Innovator of the Year for the development and deployment of a text-based mobile app for over-the-road maintenance calls.

Reed has worked at Aim for over three decades, and he continues to push the technical envelope. As a result, our data transparency and “one version of the truth” approach allows customers to view their data directly in our system without any filtering.

John also serves as chairman of the YBI board.

Nominated by Jess Deane, Aim Transportation Solutions.
