TrueNorth has announced that Trent Tillman, current executive vice president of the company’s transportation division, will have his role expanded to include serving as president of TrueNorth.
According to a release, TrueNorth Companies president and CEO Jason Smith extended his title to Tillman. Smith will remain CEO, while Tillman also retains his responsibilities as EVP of transportation in addition to his new responsibilities as company president. TrueNorth stated that this strategic decision will support its growth as it continues to operate as one of the nation’s largest privately-held, full-service risk management and insurance brokerage firms.
“I’m thrilled to extend my role as president to Trent and am confident that the decision to co-lead will support our clients, colleagues and communities for years to come,” commented Smith. “Trent and I have a strong history of developing innovative solutions that serve our clients and benefit the transportation industry. I’m looking forward to bringing that same intention and focus to teams throughout our firm.”
Tillman joined TrueNorth fresh out of college in 2003. He later took the role of practice leader for the company’s asset light risk management and programs group in 2011. Tillman was eventually named EVP of the transportation division in 2017, and has helped double the team’s size, clients, and revenue in the last five years.
“I’ve had the great fortune of working alongside Jason my entire career,” stated Tillman. “I’m looking forward to partnering with him and TrueNorth’s executive leadership to champion innovation and strengthen the ties between TrueNorth’s growth and operations initiatives.”
