Hartland, New Brunswick
Richard Is the founder and President of Professional Carriers Inc. and its associated companies. He has worked in the transportation industry for 37 years, since completing his Bachelor of Education at UNB.
After holding management and executive positions in larger transportation organizations, in 2004 Richard had the opportunity to start his own company. Professional Carriers Inc. is a long-haul refrigerated carrier, focused on the food and beverage market.
Moving to a “hands on” entrepreneurial role in his own smaller company became a “labor of love” for him, which continues today. Richard has had to continually adapt his role, as Professional Carriers has grown into a medium sized carrier of 58 trucks. Today, Richard remains active in all facets of the company and provides long term planning and vision, while his son, George, as General Manager, has taken on many of the details of the daily operation. Richard also serves on the boards of the Atlantic Provinces Trucking Assoc., Blue Sky Insurance, and is past chairman of Convoy Trucking Insurance Company. He and his wife Sue reside in Hartland, NB.
