I started in sales and management back in 1983 managing an auto body and paint shop in California.
In 1986 I was invited by my father John Platt to come work for him at Platt & Associates. I was given an opportunity as a broker and as you can see, I took that opportunity and ran. After three months, I was carrying my own weight and have grown from there.
In July of 2001 I purchased Platt & Associates from my father, and soon after implemented a dispatching program that greatly improved the service we are able to provide to our customers and carriers today. I look forward to continuing to improve and expand our business to even better our services to our customers and carriers. I also look forward to expanding and continuing the working and personal relationships that I have been able to enjoy in the past with both shippers and carriers.
I want to give a special thanks to my father John Platt for giving me the opportunity in this industry.
In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my wife Lori, listening to my daughter Ashley playing her violin, coaching my son Tyler’s baseball team as well as my daughter Courtney’s softball team, fishing, hunting, boating, and traveling.
After four months of studying, I became a Certified Transportation Broker on 04/28/06.
