In a world of rapid change, evolving work dynamics and shifting economic landscapes, it’s an extraordinary achievement for an individual to celebrate 30 years at a single company. Dave Gurska, Aim Integrated Logistics’ Chief Operating Officer, recently marked three decades of unwavering dedication and commitment to Aim Transportation Solutions.
Let’s rewind to 1991, right before Dave’s 30-year journey at Aim began. Dave’s education in business administration from Penn State-Behrend set the stage for him to start work for his father’s startup company. However, the economy then was in rough shape, and after a couple of years, they decided he needed to go out on his own. Dave’s next stop: Aim.
