The man behind PGT
Premier Global Transportation is a third party logistics company that got our official start in June 2020 when president Tony Uhrina decided to take a leap of faith and branch out on his own. Tony started in the industry in 2006 and has since held various roles in sales, logistics, transportation and supply chain. Most recently, he was the vice president of operations at a trucking company in the Cincinnati market. He believes his experiences in various facets of the logistics industry will continue to be the foundation for growth at PGT.
When starting PGT, Tony put a lot of thought into what values he believed in and what he wanted to build the company foundation going forward. He determined that TIME would be the core of those values. For us, TIME stands for Teamwork, Integrity, Meticulous, & Excellence (we will go into detail about this later in the month). Tony takes a lot of pride in these core values and they are on the forefront of his mind every day with the team here at PGT and in his personal life.
Outside of work, Tony loves spending time with his family. He married his wife Katie in 2013 and together they have two young boys. Both boys keep them on their toes and do their best to keep them young, even if they are giving him a few gray hairs! They enjoy watching Browns & Bengals football and UC Bearcat athletics together, most recently celebrating the Bengals & Bearcats post-season accomplishments. They enjoy traveling the world together and exploring as much as they can. Tony enjoys meeting friends on the golf course and is always looking to meet new people to join in on the fun.
