Jim Mazzuca Joins Independent Carrier
A. Arnold World Class Relocation has announced the hiring of Jim Mazzuca as the Senior Vice President of Operations for its Louisville headquarters. In this role, Mazzuca will oversee all aspects of fleet operations, capacity, operator recruiting and safety at the company. “During my time working with Jim at Bekins it was quickly apparent that he is one of the most creative, detailed and successful operational minds in our industry,” stated Greg Hoover, CEO of A. Arnold. “The availability of someone with a proven track record and the depth of his experience is rare in our business. To say that we’re excited to have him join our A. Arnold team is an understatement.”
With more than 40 years in the moving and storage industry, virtually all of Mazzuca’s career has taken place in the Bekins Van Lines system. Among his many contributions there he was instrumental in the development of Bekins’ Time-Lock and Home Direct products, as well as many of the industry leading operational concepts and policies introduced by the company over the years. He oversaw all of Bekins’ operations, fleet and safety activities in his most recent position prior to the company’s sale, and has particular expertise in the Specialized Transit and Exhibit/Display segments of the relocation industry.
“I am very excited to be joining the A. Arnold team, and to be a part of this exceptional and highly respected organization,” said Mazzuca. “I’ve always had a great deal of admiration for A. Arnold’s Chairman, Rick Russell, and I had an outstanding working relationship with Greg Hoover during his tenure at Bekins. I’m looking forward to joining them both at such a terrific company, and at the opportunities presented by an independent van line setting.” A leading independent van line in the moving and storage industry, A. Arnold is headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky. Founded in 1905, A. Arnold specializes in full-service domestic relocation services for individual households and multinational corporations, and serves the international market through its Sterling International business unit.
