EVANSVILLE, Ind. (March 28, 2014) — AWG Logistics, Inc., a subsidiary of Atlas World Group, Inc., today announces the promotion of seasoned industry veteran Phil Wahl to vice president and general manager, which he is assuming in addition to his current position as vice president of Avail Resource Management, Inc., another subsidiary of Atlas World Group, Inc. Wahl is a 25-year employee of the company who takes over in assisting a broad suite of logistics services to Atlas customers, while continuing to have responsibility within the Avail division.

"Phil's extensive knowledge of our company, his well-respected agent relationships and direct customer exposure make him uniquely qualified," said Jack Griffin, president and COO of Atlas World Group. "It is always a joy to see such determined individuals within the Atlas family thrive and transition into well-deserved leadership positions."
Having served the company for a quarter century, Wahl has prospered in a variety of positions, with a majority of his experience in the Specialized Transportation Group (STG) of Atlas Van Lines, Inc.
