In his new role, beginning on January 26, Saunders will be the head of the firm’s acquisition and strategic initiatives. He will also oversee the finance division.

“Transportation and logistics has always been a part of my DNA,” said Saunders. “My first job after university was as a Supply Chain Analyst at Canadian Tire, which is where I met my wife. More recently, my experience at HSBC Bank was finding ways to support businesses grow their businesses globally. One of my best experiences was joining a supply chain and logistics trade delegation on a four city tour in Asia, organized by Bob Armstrong. At RBC, my mandate was working with high growth health care companies who were very active with a variety of acquisition strategies ranging from new start ups to Private Equity backed consolidators. While perhaps an unconventional background by industry standards, it fits the growth ambitions of Polaris and I am delighted to be joining such a strong team of dedicated professionals.”

Larry Cox, President of Polaris Transportation commented, “I’ve known Jon for a long time and have come to appreciate and respect his considerable expertise in the areas of finance and strategic thinking. Having him join our company now is perfect timing as we proceed with our plans for continued and controlled growth.”
