Our people move freight. These are their stories: Richard Couto

richard-image2Richard Couto heads up our technology department as Director of Information Systems for Polaris Transportation. With two decades of experience, Richard was most recently a senior developer with a national healthcare supplier.

Reporting directly to our President, Larry Cox, Richard has been with our company for almost a year. Larry comments,” Richard has been a great addition to our team and is moving our company in the right direction. I’m impressed with his positive attitude and ability to get us ahead of the curve with our technology.”

Richard is the father of 2 teenage boys and lives in Mississauga. Much of his spare time is devoted to sports activities with his sons, which includes coaching hockey, baseball and soccer.

When asked what he finds different about working with Polaris Richard states, “Polaris is still at a size where it can turn on a dime and respond very quickly to customer requests. My job in information systems is to preserve that agility while introducing appropriate testing and quality control…a best of both worlds scenario.”
