HAYLOR, FREYER & COON

As a vice president and sales team leader in the transportation department at Haylor, Freyer & Coon, Joseph Peplinski takes a candid approach when talking with company owners about areas where they need to improve. “Having those tough conversations is being a true partner to those you promise to protect,” he says. “I try to inspire positive change that we can achieve as a team by speaking openly about their exposures and areas of deficiency. Being a crutch doesn’t help their business.”

Peplinski is extremely involved in the trucking industry, which has led to a deeper appreciation of the challenges his clients face and resulted in his nomination as safety chair for the Trucking Association of New York, where he currently serves on the board of directors. “Our association advocates as the voice of trucking for critical industry regulations and issues, and my desire is to give back to the industry that has given so much to me by paving a brighter path for future generations,” Peplinski says.
