Aim Transportation Solutions, a leading national provider of commercial vehicles and services for more than 50 years, is pleased to welcome two new hires to the Accounting Department at our corporate headquarters in Youngstown, OH.
As a family-owned and -operated company headquartered in Northeast Ohio, Aim continues to invest in local talent, promoting job growth in our own backyard.
Justin Battisti, Aim’s new assistant controller, is a Youngstown local, born and raised in Struthers, OH. He graduated Cum Laude from Youngstown State University in 2010 with a bachelor’s in accounting. Upon graduation, Justin completed an internship with Hill Barth & King, where he was employed until 2014.
In 2015, Justin obtained his CPA license and began work with a Cleveland-based multi-wealth management firm. There he was promoted to director of accounting & financial reporting before leaving for a position as controller of a large property management company.
Justin, an avid Cleveland sports fan, now resides in Hudson, OH, with his fiancée, Gracie. Together they enjoy hiking at Cuyahoga Valley National Park and entertaining family and friends at their new home.
Newly appointed credit manager, Aaron Baker, is also a local hire. He comes to us from Newton Falls, OH, and is a 1992 graduate of Ohio University where he earned his Bachelor of Science in Communication.
Aaron began his career in 1993 as a manager at a consumer lending agency, where he was employed until 2008. Aaron then went on to work as a mortgage consultant for Wells Fargo, a credit supervisor at Hoover/Dirt-Devil and, most recently, a credit/collections manager for Olympic Steel.
When Aaron isn’t crunching numbers, he’s working on home improvement projects and enjoys traveling with his fiancée, Joyce.
“This is exciting because Justin and Aaron are coming in with well-rounded backgrounds and a ton of expertise that will complement our diverse business perfectly,” said Aim CFO Rick Fox. “We’re grateful to have found these two high-caliber candidates locally in order to continue growing our deep roots in Northeast Ohio, where we’re headquartered.”
Fox added: “Aim has been part of the Youngstown business community for decades, and that’s a credit to all the talented folks at Aim, like Justin and Aaron, who have been instrumental in the company’s success and who will allow us to continue contributing to the community long into the future.”
“Justin and Aaron will make great additions to Aim’s corporate support,” said Aim Co-President Geoff Fleming. “A lot has to happen behind the scenes to make Aim a trusted, best-in-class provider of commercial transportation services, and I’m confident they are going to play an important role in Aim’s continued growth and success.”
