The Averitt Story

50 years of setting the professional standard

 

Has It Been 50 Years Already?

This year marks five decades of operation here at Averitt - a fact we owe entirely to our dedicated family of associates. They're at the heart of everything we do, and they're the reason for every bit of growth we've enjoyed. 

In 1958, Thurman Averitt founded Livingston Merchant's Co-op, a small trucking company that hauled dry goods mostly between Nashville, TN and Livingston, TN. In 1969, Thurman incorporated his small company and called it Averitt Express.

While making regular deliveries in Nashville, Thurman became acquainted with a young dockworker who helped him unload his trailer. This young man's name was Gary Sasser. Gary happened to ask Thurman one day if he would be interested in selling his company. After some thought, Thurman said yes.

In October 1971, Gary Sasser, at the age of 21, purchased Averitt Express, which at the time consisted of two associates, three tractors and five trailers. Today, there are nearly ten thousand associates, over five thousand tractors and over fifteen thousand trailers. 

Averitt is one of the nation's leading freight transportation and supply chain management providers.AVE_50thLogo_4C

 

Our outstanding fleet of clean, modern equipment with advanced safety technology does more than help our drivers succeed – it inspires the confidence of our sales team, reduces the stress of our mechanics, and makes work easier for our dock associates. We have safe and secure facilities in over 21 states and continue to grow that number along with hundreds of promotions from within each year and the most competitive benefits package in the industry.

 

GARY SASSER CHAIRMAN & CEO

After serving in the United States Marines Corps reserves, Gary attended the University of Tennessee while working part-time in the transportation business. Since that time, Gary's vision for Averitt Express has been to maintain a strong focus on people, demonstrated by providing the best service to its customers and developing the full potential of its associates. 

 

WAYNE SPAIN PRESIDENT & COO

Wayne joined Averitt in 1980 and has served in a variety of leadership roles, including General Sales Manager, Vice President of Sales, as well as Executive Vice President. A native of Jackson, Tennessee, Wayne graduated from the University of Tennessee with a Bachelor of Science degree in transportation.

 

Here's our leadership team and some of our key Vice-Presidents. You can see the years they started with Averitt. Every member of our leadership team has been here for at least 20 years. It’s rare to have so many leaders who have been with the same team for so long. We’re proud of that stability and experience. Most of our leaders started in other positions within our team. Some of them were drivers and dock associates when they started.
