Elliott Pinson – Board Member
A Nashville, TN native, Elliott graduated from the Haslam College of Business at the University of Tennessee with a major in Logistics and Supply Chain Management. He accepted a position with Schneider National and participated in their Rotational Leadership Program in Green Bay, WI, where he worked through all departments of the asset-based Van Truckload Division. From recruiting to customer service to operations and planning, he gained a holistic understanding of the inner-workings of a longstanding and successful trucking company. Upon return to Nashville as a Driver Business Leader, Elliott assisted in winning the 2013 Van Truckload Division of the year award. He then moved into the role of Dell Account Manager with Schneider Logistics where he managed an international team based in TN, WI, and Mexico. Elliott successfully grew and managed the account including the development of a cross-dock program with Christenson Transportation.
Through this implementation he had the pleasure of working with the Christenson Family and made the decision to leave Schneider when Don Christenson asked him to become a part of his sales team. Elliott enjoys the leadership philosophy and work environment at Christenson Transportation. He is also a part of many local transportation and supply chain organizations:
Delta Nu Alpha (DNA) Transportation Fraternity – Board Member
Volunteer State Community College – Business Advisory Board Member
Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP) – Member
Tennessee Trucking Association – Young Professionals Council (TTA YPC) – Member

In his off time, he plays golf, hunts, and fishes. He also enjoys being on the water and attending Titans, Vols & Predators games.
