With more than 25 years of experience in the transportation industry, Bangston’s experience includes various leadership roles in DTNA, including positions abroad. 

He started his DTNA career in 2001 working in corporate finance, and later held international leadership positions in Germany, Southeast Asia and Japan, and returned to the U.S. in 2019 as the general manager of distribution network development, the company said in a news release.
