ATLAS LOGISTICS® NAMES PHIL WAHL PRESIDENT AND CHIEF OPERATIONS OFFICER
EVANSVILLE, Ind. (November 7, 2019) — Atlas Logistics Inc., a subsidiary of Atlas World Group, Inc., announces the promotion of Phil Wahl to president and chief operating officer, a newly created position for the company, effective January 1, 2020. He will oversee all strategy and operations for Atlas Logistics®’ broad suite of 3PL and fleet services.
Wahl became vice president and general manager of Atlas Logistics® in 2014 and served as senior vice president since 2017.
“Atlas Logistics® is a fundamentally different service than that of household goods,” said Jack Griffin, chairman and CEO of Atlas® World Group. “With Phil’s appointment to this new leadership role, we take an important step in bifurcating our logistics and household goods offerings, making them two distinct business units. Phil’s impeccable leadership will allow for significant growth in the logistics sector, and we are committed to making the necessary investments to benefit his team.”
Having served the company for three decades, Wahl has prospered in a variety of positions, with a majority of his experience in the Specialized Transportation Group of Atlas® Van Lines. While serving as vice president of Avail Move Management®, he was responsible for Atlas®’ military program while also providing move management services to the Atlas® agency network and leading relationship management for several national accounts.
Atlas Logistics® provides both 3PL services and its own padded-van fleet. The company's expertise includes project management and white-glove services for high-value, high-touch shipments like fine art, museum pieces, trade show exhibits, electronics, medical equipment, store fixtures, and more. Its partner network of warehouses and hand-picked installation professionals also provide final-mile service across the U.S.
“I am honored for the opportunity to lead Atlas Logistics® and continue our momentum," said Wahl. “Our strategic direction is clear, and we are charting a course for meaningful innovation and growth. I look forward to continuing to serve the Atlas® agency network and the customers they support.”
