In 2019 a succession management transition plan was implemented by Wilson, moving Al to the position of Co-Founder & Chief Sales Officer, enabling the selection and mentoring of a new leadership team creating sustainability for future growth and strengthening Trailcon’s customer centric culture.

Recognizing Al still has some gas left in the tank, Jim and Al plan to continue their likeminded approach to customer service asset-based business. Al will take on new responsibilities within the Wilson Asset group of companies, including supporting the growth initiatives of its real estate division Wilson Terra Firma Holdings Inc.

“I am thankful for Al’s undertaking to building Trailcon and wish him and his family all the best following his semi-retirement.”
