Meet Our Team

Howard Huffman

Howard Huffman

President

Howard Huffman

Howard Huffman founded Freight Breakers in 2004 as Prime Choice Services (PCS). He began his warehouse career at the age of 16 working for a trucking company loading and unloading trailers of furniture to work his way through college. Warehousing was his passion and his knack for process improvement propelled him quickly into management roles where he led several distribution operations before being recruited into wholesale food distribution for a Fortune 500 company. It was this experience that opened his eyes to the business of managed services and ultimately led to the idea of carrying that model into other commodity and consumer goods import receiving and distribution operations.

Yasser El-Shahat

Chief Operating Officer

Yasser El-Shahat

Yasser El-Shahat began his career with Freight Breakers in 2015 loading tires at one of our tire distribution operations in Texas. When he was told during his interview that he would be paid for work performed and not hours worked, it was a no-brainer that his work ethic would translate to higher earnings and growth opportunities. As leadership positions opened, he worked his way from supervision and management to director of operations for our Texas region where his demonstrated leadership led to his current role as Chief Operating Officer for Freight Breakers.
