BOLTON, Ont. — Cavalier Transportation Group has appointed Rick Brooks to vice-president of business development. Operating out of Buffalo, N.Y., officials said Brooks will be working closely with the company’s US marketing partners, managing select corporate accounts and developing new opportunities for Cavalier, including the continued growth of its domestic US logistics business.

Brooks recently held the position of senior vice-president of sales for a leading expedited carrier. Over his career, he has held senior management roles with USFreightways, CP Express and Intercity Truck Lines. Brooks will be reporting directly to Brian Ledson, executive vice-president of sales and marketing for the Cavalier Transportation Group.

“Our family has known Rick for a long period and in the past, Rick has worked closely with other members of our current senior executive. Having someone of Rick’s calibre join our team is a real asset to us,” Ledson said. “He is knowledgeable, professional and personable. With the steady growth of our business, south of the border, the timing of his appointment couldn’t be better.”
