Logistics leader names new finance exec

Third party logistics provider Transplace named veteran finance executive Tony Cossentino as its new CFO reporting to CEO Tom Sanderson.

Cossentino replaces Steve Crowther, who joined Transplace in 2007 and helped guide the company through management-led private equity deals with CI Capital Partners and Greenbriar Equity Group, as well as strategic acquisitions of SCO Logistics, Torus Freight Systems and partnership with Celtic International.

“Steve was instrumental in building Transplace into a strong, stable company that is well positioned for continued growth. He created a solid foundation for Tony to bring in his deep experience and knowledge to help Transplace continue to grow and be successful both now and into the future,” said John Anderson, Transplace chairman and advisory director for Greenbriar.

According to Transplace CEO Sanderson, Cossentino’s well-established reputation for strategic planning and his broad experience with global accounting, finance and business operations make him an ideal fit for the growing organization.

“As part of our continued growth and advancement, it is important to have dynamic leaders who are able to direct and cultivate our internal financial planning and business strategy,” Sanderson said. “Tony brings the extensive experience and vision that Transplace needs as we continue to grow and expand our business.”

Cossentino is a CPA who has worked with both publicly-traded and private equity backed companies and served as CFO at AmeriCold Logistics, Arnold Logistics, and most recently, Environmental Logistics Services.
