Jim Gaw headshotBekins is excited to announce Jim Gaw as its new president. With a career spanning more than two decades in the industry, Gaw’s proven track record of driving growth lends itself to a positive outlook for the van line. 

Coming to Bekins from his position of COO at APS Logistics, Inc., Gaw is a 12-year veteran of Atlas World Group International, where he served as President and COO. Prior to working at Atlas, Gaw worked at Bekins Van Lines as Vice President of International before Wheaton World Wide Moving acquired Bekins Van Lines in 2012. With his diverse experience in transportation and logistics he is well-placed to lead Bekins at a time when the industry is experiencing changes. 

“As an ESOP company, everyone at the van line values innovation in pursuit of service excellence,” said Mark Kirschner, CEO of Bekins. “Gaw’s experience in the household goods industry, combined with his strategic vision and operational expertise, makes him the ideal leader to drive our company’s strategic growth. His ability to foster relationships and lead high-performing teams will be instrumental as we expand our market share and enhance our service offerings.”  

As president, Gaw will oversee all aspects of Bekins’ operations, working closely with Kirschner, the board of directors, and the executive committee to establish long-range goals, plans and policies to move the company forward. 

“I am honored to join Bekins and look forward to working with this talented team to build on their strong foundation,” Gaw said. “Together, we will continue to deliver exceptional service to our clients, expand our market presence and foster a culture of collaboration and excellence.”
