COOKEVILLE – Averitt Express has named Wayne Spain company president in addition to his existing role as chief operating officer (COO).
Spain joined Averitt in 1980, and in that time, has served as general sales manager, vice president of sales and executive vice president of marketing. He graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in transportation in 1972.
Spain had essentially been maintaining both roles for quite some time, Gary Sasser, Averitt’s owner and chief executive officer (CEO), said. The upgrade recognizes his duties as both.
“I felt that it was time for Wayne to assume a title that is consistent with the role he has been serving for Averitt for some time,” he added. “The whole Averitt team is excited and energized about finding innovative ways to service our customers, develop our people and drive growth.”
