Purolator International President John Costanzo has been named by Long Island Business News as one of the 2014 Outstanding CEO Award winners. Costanzo was honored for his direction and leadership, helping Purolator International grow its U.S. presence, introduce innovative new services, and achieve superior customer experience ratings.

Since joining Purolator International in 2001, Costanzo has successfully expanded its corporate footprint from three to 30 U.S. markets, opening 20 new markets since 2010. As a result of its 2010 market expansion, Purolator International has doubled its U.S. sales and increased profits over 30 percent, including the cost of investment in the expansion. Costanzo attributes this in large part to the company’s unparalleled Express delivery network in Canada, his employees’ commitment to providing high quality customer service, other key services such as its LTL and Freight Forwarding services, and the 2013 launch of a new business to consumer Parcel delivery service, PuroPost™.

“I am truly honored and humbled to receive this award,” said Costanzo. “I’m proud of the many accomplishments of Purolator International and our employees. We are now approaching 250 people in the U.S. who work diligently each and every day to make sure our customers shipping and logistics needs are not only met, but exceeded in terms of on-time delivery and the value they receive from Purolator’s services and support.”
