Carlile Transportation Systems said Dec. 18 that Russ Baker had recently been promoted to the position of Anchorage Terminal manager at the corporate flagship headquarters.
Baker will “oversee the daily operations and processes” at the Anchorage terminal, the company said in a press release.
Baker joined Carlile after moving to Alaska from California and has 30 years of experience in the transportation industry.
He has been employed by Carlile since 2006.
Carlile was started in 1980 by brothers Harry McDonald, chief executive officer, and John McDonald, senior vice president.
Other owners include President Linda Leary, Vice President of Operations Jeff Allan, and Vice President of Human Resources Karl Hoenack.
The business started with three trucks, but today operates more than 350 trucks and 1,500 pieces of trailing equipment. And with more than 650 employees at 12 terminals and logistics facilities throughout Alaska and North America, Carlile remains customer committed for the long-haul.
