Platinum Cargo Logistics was the vision of four founding partners: Diana Bomar, Elliot Trepper, Bill Mancini, and Ray Oleferchik. Diana, now President and majority owner, approached Ray and Bill, also experienced logistics professionals, to join her with the goal of transforming the customer experience by “Building Bridges to Change in the Industry and Providing a Platinum Experience of Service in Transportation and Logistics.” Elliot, chosen for his financial and entrepreneurial experience, brought with him the focus and expertise needed to build a strong, fiscally sound company. With steadfast vision, the new partners established four offices; in Denver, Los Angeles, Chicago, and South Bend; with the company headquartered in California.
2007 will be remembered as the year the Great Recession began, but it was also the year Platinum Cargo Logistics was founded. Even in the best of times, launching a new company is no easy task, but despite the challenges, the founders were determined. As they established their vision with a promise to their customers and employees, they focused on building the brand that would define the company. They commissioned Diana’s son, Gary Lee Bomar—an accomplished artist—, to design the logo and timeless art-deco-inspired drawings that are globally recognizable today. Gary Lee tragically passed away in 2015, but his elegant imagery remains inseparable from Platinum Cargo Logistics. The name, logo, and artwork are registered and trademarked, and they have come to represent the expertise, attention to detail, and personalized service our customers expect from each of our offices and our team members.
In 2015, Platinum Cargo Logistics’ corporate headquarters moved to Denver, CO, and Diana was appointed by the Board of Directors as President and CEO. Two years later, in 2017, she and Elliot Trepper made additional investments, shifting their focus to financial management and guidance of leadership teams. Elliot also assumed the role of Chief Financial Officer and Chairman of the Board of Directors. This shift allowed Bill Mancini and Ray Oleferchik to focus on the growth of their stations, and they remain trusted colleagues. And in 2020, the company achieved prestigious recognition celebrating Diana Bomar’s leadership when it was awarded the National Woman Owned Business Certification.
The company’s expansive growth and success continue today with offices throughout the USA and partnerships globally.
