SACRAMENTO, California (February 5, 2018) – Matheson Flight Extenders (MFE), a division of Matheson Trucking, Inc., announced today that Tim Noel has been appointed vice president and Phong Vang has been named director of flight operations for the company’s business unit providing under wing and terminal handling services at 27 airports and at two additional locations across the U.S.
Noel has held several positions with Matheson involving increased responsibilities for almost five years. In his most recent assignment he served as MFE’s director of flight operations.
“What we do is all about achieving objectives and focusing on client’s needs, providing quality service and looking for opportunities to grow the business – as we continue to improve operations and increase relationships with existing customers and potential charter clients,” Noel said.
“We’ve grown at an annual rate of 20%. My personal goal is to maintain that momentum by helping to increase Matheson’s MFE market share and profitability.”
Vang joined MFE as director of operations after serving as a plant manager and senior director of operations for Pacific Architects and Engineers (PAE) in Lakeville, MN, where he was in charge of distribution and inbound/outbound warehouse and supply chain management.
While at PAE, Vang was also responsible for oversight, process improvement and execution at nine mail distribution and warehouse fulfillment centers handling transportation functions for the United States Postal Service.
In his new role, he will work closely with Noel and MFE airport station managers to improve operation processes (logistics, quality assurance, safety and security), while also introducing efficiencies to further enhance Matheson’s reputation for on-time turnaround and customer satisfaction.
“We strive to promote from within whenever possible, while also keeping a lookout for new talent with experience and potential to match current operations and future needs,” said Charles Mellor, COO and general counsel. “Tim and Phong have strategic and tactical planning expertise and skill sets that help us meet and exceed company and customer expectations.”
Mark Matheson, CEO of Matheson Trucking, Inc., said, “Our employees are our greatest asset and an integral part of our continuous improvement program. These two individuals, along with other members of our management team, have the know-how to take our company to the next level by introducing new techniques and innovative ideas based on years of experience in the transportation industry that add value to our business.”
