Jason Cowan Silver Creek Transportation

Jason Cowan is the founder and President of Henderson, Kentucky-based Silver Creek Transportation. Launched by an acquisition of a local trucking company in 1994, Silver Creek has since become a leader in specialty trucking. Under Cowan's leadership, the fleet serves a diverse customer base with an array of services, from walking floor and dry bulk tanks to flatbeds and dry vans. Cowan’s laser-focused on maintaining a healthy company culture in the increasingly fine-tuned operation that seeks to actively involve its company driver team and leased owner-operators in the achievement of safety and maintenance goals. And he's become a leader not only in the transportation industry but in the area of leadership and relationship development more broadly. Fundamentally, Cowan is forever trying to answer this question for himself, too, when it comes to those working with Silver Creek: "What can I do to help them have a better life?" In 2021, Cowan and Silver Creek Transportation were crowned Overdrive’s Small Fleet Champ award winners.
