Aaron Thompson

Vice President, Maintenance

Aaron Thompson joined TEL in 2020 as Vice President of Maintenance. He focuses on building the best possible support system for small fleets and owner-operators, so they get the right repairs completed at the right price as quickly as possible.

A personal goal to help transportation professionals serve their customers well

Aaron sees the opportunity at TEL to make a significant impact on the future of the trucking industry by helping to support and grow the next generation of transportation entrepreneurs. He recognizes that the vast majority of trucking in the U.S. is moving via small fleets and independent contractors – everyday heroes who are working hard to take care of their customers and support their families. His goal is to make sure these professionals have the right equipment spec’d to do what they need done in an efficient way and a support system in place to help them in their time of need, whether it’s a flat tire, oil change, or major warranty repair.
