MV Transportation opens Dallas location

Posted on December 7, 2011

MV Transportation Inc. announced the opening of its new Dallas location in the well-known and centrally located Premier Place Building. This executive office location adds to the company's two support center locations in Northern California and Iowa.

Members of MV Transportation's executive leadership team, including the company's CEO Carter Pate, have relocated and are now based in Dallas. Larry Biggers, recently announced as MV's VP, national call centers, will soon follow to establish the company's first national call center. MV hopes to open its call center in early 2012 and grow to 200 employees by the end of the year.

"MV Transportation has experienced significant growth over the past year with new contracts across North America and new employees as a result. This central location in the heart of the country accommodates our rapid expansion and puts us in an optimal position to support continued growth," said Pate. "Dallas has a strong sense of home for me; I earned my Masters in Accounting from the University of Texas, Dallas; raised my three sons here and also began my career at the PricewaterhouseCoopers Dallas location. I look forward to strengthening my current relationships in Dallas and to creating new ones."

MV Transportation is a proud community partner across state, regional and national levels. Locally, the company is a member of the Dallas Regional Chamber of Commerce, a supporter of the Dallas chapter of Conference of Minority Transportation Officials and a member of the Southwest Transit Association based in Austin.
