Milwaukee-based Tax Airfreight Inc., a transportation and logistics company, announced this week that it has named Brandon Pearson as its new chief executive officer.


Pearson joined the company in August of 2019 as director of operations.


Previously, he was a regional terminal manager for New Brighton, Minnesota-based LME Inc.


“I have had the pleasure of watching Brandon Pearson in action over the past nine months,” said Greg Groth, chairman and founder of Tax Airfreight. “It has been fun and invigorating for me. He is a true freight guy, has strong sales acumen, financial expertise and understands people. He has the natural ability to look at each situation with logic and compassion, patience not to react too soon or overreact, and the respect of employees and his peers. It is for these reasons, and more, that I have decided to move Brandon into the position of CEO.  He has already taken on the role with his actions, so the title only cements his leadership with customers, freight partners, his peers and his managers.”


Groth founded Tax Airfreight in 1977. The company now has nearly 320 employees with seven facilities in Wisconsin, Illinois, Minnesota and Iowa.


“Tax-Air has a proud history, a team second to none, serving world-class customers and I’m proud and excited about being part of this organization and helping to lead it into the future,” said Pearson.
