Join us in wishing George Warn all the best as he retires from Polaris Transportation

DSC_0068[2]George Warn, Director of Risk Management, is retiring. George joined our company a decade ago to head up our safety and compliance department. His duties included driver training, safety on the road and within our operation. He also played a key role with WSIB, C-TPAT, PIP, insurance implementation and compliance.

According to George, “I like to call my time here a stressful pleasure. All kidding aside, Dave and Larry Cox have been great to work for. I have had wonderful opportunities to learn and grow from the many new and varied challenges presented to me over my nearly 10 years here. I couldn’t think of a better way to wrap up my career.”

George Warn started his journey in 1973 as a professional driver and had 30 years in before moving to his career in training and compliance. Larry Cox explains, “We were a much smaller company at that time and George worked with us to assess the driving force of a specialized carrier we had just purchased. We hit it off immediately and hired him on the spot.”

George and his wife of 30 years, Judy, recently moved to Uxbridge as part of their retirement plan. They have 2 children and 3 grandchildren and love to watch them participate in a variety of sports and other activities. George hopes to retire his lawnmower too and enjoy the greens on the local golf course next spring. Other future plans includes travel, starting with a cruise in the immediate future.

Dave Cox adds, “As much as we will all miss George, please join me in wishing him well on the next chapter in his life journey. He has been a true pleasure to work with. We remain hopeful that when he is not golfing or travelling that he will consider doing some consulting for us. All the best to you and yours George!”
