DGX-Dependable Global Express Appoints Jorge Quintana to Vice President of Airfreight

RANCHO DOMINGUEZ, CA--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2015) - Dependable Global Express (DGX) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jorge ("George") Quintana to the position of Vice President of Airfreight. Quintana has been with DGX since 2007, most recently as DGX's Corporate Sales Manager. Prior to joining DGX, Quintana worked for his previous company as Export Manager, handling all aspects of exporting for both ocean and air services. Quintana brings more than 25 years of forwarding experience to his new position with DGX.

"DGX has always done a great job of taking care of our customers and moving freight," said Quintana. "My experience as a DGX customer was one of the main attractions that brought me to the company in 2007. In my new role, I'll help DGX continue its expansion by leveraging our strengths in markets we serve, while also carrying those advantages to new markets where there's opportunity for growth."

George takes over the position from Gloria Whittington, who will continue working with the company in a specialized role with respect to Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) compliance processes and procedures.

"Promoting George is another way we're continuing to improve our existing services," said DGX president Brad Dechter. "Through a combination of improving efficiencies by using our infrastructure to increase throughput, plus expanding to new markets, we believe George brings a unique and diversified experience level into our management team that will help achieve our growth and profitability goals."

Dechter added, "We also would like to thank Gloria Whittington for her efforts, which helped make us the viable air freight operator we are today. Because of her leadership, DGX is known as a focused, high-quality air freight group service, which all contributes to our position as a global supply chain logistics leader."
