Rick Williams

Having been in the industry since 1984, Rick brings over 35 years of experience to Rank in handling Expedited Freight, Intermodal Drayage, Full Truckloads and more. Rick has built a reputation for putting the client first: through his honest communication, customer service, and by working with trusted carriers to get our clients’ freight to its location quick and efficiently.

Nancy Williams

For the past 8 years, Nancy has been crunching the numbers behind Rank’s success. As the lead accountant at the brokerage, Nancy works hard to make sure our clients are receiving fair and competitive pricing on their freight, as well as making sure our trusted carriers get paid. Just like Rick, Nancy has a dedication to putting clients first. She also operates as a general manager at Rank, helping to provide the best logistics experience to our clients as well as heading-up Rank’s new intern program! During the week, you can find Nancy at the office being kept company by the Williams’ dog, Shaley!
