Con-way Freight announced that it has promoted Timothy P. Dell to area vice president of sales for the company’s Western Area. Dell — who will be based at Con-way Freight’s location in Buena Park, Calif. — will be responsible for directing the company’s sales initiatives in the 11 western U.S. states, as well as North Dakota, South Dakota, Minnesota and Texas. He also will oversee the activities of nine regional sales managers and eight national account executives.
“Tim Dell has exceptional sales talent and a long history of delivering results for Con-way Freight in the Western region,” says Ed Conaway, executive vice president of sales for Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Con-way Freight. “His commitment to outstanding customer service and experience in leading sales management teams make him a natural for this new role.”
A 32-year veteran of the less-than-truckload transportation industry, Dell began his career as a dockworker, eventually moving on to positions including dispatcher, freight operations supervisor, service center manager and sales manager. He joined Con-way Freight in 1998 as an account executive at its facility in Orange, Calif. Dell later became senior account executive and most recently held the role of regional sales manager for the territory covering Southern California.
