Principle Transport Group ( has added a fresh face to its sales staff with the hiring of Donavon Roberts, a recent graduate of Angelo State University with a Bachelor of Business degree in marketing. Roberts will also be the first new hire to benefit from PTG’s redesigned training and mentorship program, which will help to instill the values and perspective that have made the company a pioneer in transportation and logistics.

ptg“Donavon had other offers, but overall he feels Principle Transport Group represents the best option for his personal growth and career development,” says Founder Sheila Ann Jackson. “In addition to the new training program he will be part of, he receives mentorship from top level executives. That kind of support is typically not available from employers this early in a person’s career. Donavon chose to ‘join the freight life’ as his first job or best next step.”

Roberts brings two years of management experience to his new position at PTG. He plans to build on that experience by collaborating with a leadership team that represents some of the top minds in the transport industry. Roberts likewise has extensive volunteer experience, from assisting at youth football camps to pitching in after Hurricane Katrina. Jackson remarks that PTG is proud to bring an individual on board who has already demonstrated many of the organization’s core values, including integrity, respect and excellence.

PTG is always on the lookout for exceptional people who want to be part of a dynamic, results-focused team that’s changing the transportation and logistics industry for the better. Future hires can expect to reap all the benefits of the company’s comprehensive training and mentorship program that guides our employees towards success be it at the start of their career or as they work to continuously improve as an employee, leader and team member.
