Nick Pyle, Operations Manager
I started in the transportation industry in July 1990 with Overnite Transportation, a non-union LTL carrier in Baltimore, Md. I was hired as a billing clerk and over the next 2 years, I worked numerous office positions until I was promoted to dock supervisor in 1992 in Landover, Md. In 1994, I was promoted again to hub supervisor in Wallingford, Ct. Overnite brought me back to Baltimore in 1995 as the operations manager of their 122 door Baltimore facility. The following year, I was made Terminal Manager in Manassas, Va., where I stayed for the next 3 years.

I left Overnite in 1999 and spent time with American Freightways and Watkins Motor Lines, both non-union LTL carriers located in Baltimore and Manassas. From 2003-2006 I worked in operations management for New Penn Motor Express, a unionized LTL carrier in Baltimore.

2006 saw an expansion of horizons as I switched to Bond Transfer, a Baltimore based TL carrier. My duties were fairly diverse including dispatching, customer service, operations management, and logistics. Bond closed their doors in 2008. I then switched to American Expediting, a national expedited courier service, overseeing their Baltimore office for 2 years before an opportunity presented itself with Eastern Connection, the largest regional small package delivery company on the East Coast. I worked as general manager for the next 6 years.

In 2016, I decided to make a career change and studied for and received my real estate license in Maryland. I will continue to dabble in the real estate field while I help Translogistix thrive in the years to come.

Jessica Griffin, Dispatcher
My bubbly personality, strong will, and self-motivation lead me in 12 years as a Customer Service Representative. It wasn’t until I entered into the AMAZING world of Logistics that I was truly inspired. Learning the ropes at Falcon Express Couriers in 2009, I wore many hats at Falcon from CSR to Dispatcher to Account Supervisor. After six years with Falcon I then did some CSR work for Capital One Bank, and realized I missed the fast paced, and high-pressured world of dispatching. I started at Roto – Rooter dispatching, and also worked for another local courier company for about a year and a half. I then came to Translogistix with a heart ready to serve, and doing my part to see this business at its highest potential. My motto is: The best leaders were once the greatest servers.

Amanda Holsey, Administrative Assistant
After graduating Towson University in 2011 with a Bachelor’s degree in English and Psychology, Amanda’s career path has focused primarily in retail, from pet care to dispensing eye glasses. After working 3 years at Sam’s Club, she joined Translogistix as a Returns Representative. Though she is new to the business, she is excited to start a new phase in her career. In her free time, she enjoys crocheting, painting, spending time with her boyfriend, her family & friends, and her cat.

Caytlyn Pyle, Recruiter
I have been in logistics for the last 5 years. I started out as a dispatcher with Eastern Connection and within 2 years worked my way up to dispatch supervisor. Continuing to grow with the company, I became the operations manager during my 4th year. I decided to look for opportunities to expand and joined Translogistix as a recruiter. I am enjoying my career change and am looking forward to my future with Trans. I am a single mom and very proud of my son who attends Loyola Blakefield, an all-boys prep school. I am also a dog mom to a pug named Tucker who has a lot of personality. In my free time, when not chauffeuring my son or his friends around for sports, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
