Tech-driven automotive logistics provider, ACERTUS, has announced that Trent Broberg will succeed William Billiter as chief executive officer. Billiter, who co-founded the company and has served as CEO since 2010, will continue to function as a valued and strategic member of the board while helping facilitate a seamless transition for Broberg.
“I am honored and humbled to step into the role of chief executive officer of ACERTUS,” stated Broberg. “Under Bill’s leadership, the company has experienced tremendous success by providing comprehensive automotive logistics services and maintaining a steady focus on developing innovative, proprietary technology solutions. By eliminating the need to go to multiple vendors for multiple services, ACERTUS has filled a significant gap for players in the automotive industry. Beyond the impressive hyper-growth, Bill has curated a best-in-class culture and a team of more than 800 exceptionally talented individuals that I look forward to learning from, and working alongside, in the new role. As a team, I am confident we will continue to foster the upward trajectory of ACERTUS by further expanding our products and talent.”
Broberg has a long history within the logistics space, most recently with transportation technology and freight matching company Truckstop.com as chief operating officer. Prior to that position, he served in a variety of senior executive roles at logistics providers DB Schenker and Swift Transportation, Inc. Broberg’s deep experience within the industry and leadership acumen will provide the launchpad for a new era of growth.
“It has been both an honor and a privilege to have led ACERTUS for more than a decade. This transition starts an exciting new chapter for our organization and for me personally. I will be able to pursue several of my personal passions while also remaining at the heart of our strategic thinking serving on the board to provide Trent and the company unwavering support,” said Billiter. “When selecting the right person for the CEO seat, we knew we needed someone with a passion for the industry, top-tier leadership skills and the ability to unlock new growth potential. I’m confident that Trent is the right person to take ACERTUS into its next phase of expansion and look forward to celebrating the team’s success.”
