ALEXANDRIA, VA — TransForce Group, the nation’s leading transportation workforce solutions provider, is proud to announce Gene Nelson as one of the most recent transportation professionals to achieve their Certified Transportation Professional (CTP) designation. Nelson is a Director of Business Development for TransForce Group, and works with large corporations, primarily those with private fleets, to help them with transportation solutions. Nelson works across all three business lines that TransForce Group currently provides: Education and Training, Recruiting and Employment, and Compliance and Safety.
“NPTC’s Private Fleet Management Institute CTP Program has helped me gain valuable insight into the vast responsibilities a fleet manager is confronted with on a daily basis,” says Nelson. “Today’s fleet manager is tasked with continuous improvement standards as seen in the five key disciplines; Operations, Safety, Finance, HR/Legal, and Vehicle Equipment & Maintenance. I believe these specific insights will guide me on delivering even greater value to the motor carrier through our TransForce Group business solutions.”
The NPTC Institute’s Private Fleet Management Institute in Jacksonville is an annual five-day, intensive educational program offering courses on Fleet Finance, Operations, Legal, Regulatory and Safety Compliance, Human Resources, Maintenance and Equipment. Following the program, attendees prepare and study for a comprehensive exam to obtain their CTP designation.
“We are thrilled for Gene’s CTP designation, and passion for continuing education,” says Kimberly Castagnetta, SVP Sales and Marketing for TransForce Group.” Our commitment to developing our employees directly translates to added value for our customers.”
“The CTP Certification is one of the most comprehensive and valuable designations currently offered in our industry, and we have seen tremendous value through our working relationship with the NPTC (National Private Truck Council) Institute,” continues Castagnetta, who also serves on the Board of Governors for NPTC.
Nelson will be among more than 85 new CTPs who will be honored and officially recognized as a member of the CTP Class of 2019 at its graduation ceremony to be held at NPTC’s Annual Education Management Conference and Exhibition on Sunday, April 14, 2019, where TransForce Group, Inc., will launch its new and expanded exhibit hall booth in space 816.
