Kevin Nolan is the founder and CEO of NTG. Kevin received his B.S. in Business Administration from Presbyterian College while playing college football, developing the competitive spirit he runs business with today. After finding early success as a freight broker for C.H. Robinson, Kevin left the industry and went on to manage multiple Waffle House stores. He finished his career as the top sales manager across the company, honored with the Top Waffle Award. Kevin went on to earn his MBA at Mercer and completed the degree with a business model focused on the freight brokerage industry. With experience and education under his belt, Kevin was able to form the foundation for NTG.


Kevin founded NTG in 2005 with a small office, a box of cash, and two employees. NTG was built on a service promise and Kevin’s open communication style quickly earned the trust of both carriers and shippers. After five years of operation NTG opened additional offices and began to take off, adding nine more offices between 2011 and 2016. Today, NTG has 12 offices nationwide and employs over 650 people from all backgrounds. For three consecutive years, NTG has been named one of the Fastest Growing Companies in America on the Inc. 5000 List (2015, 2016, 2017). In 2017, NTG was ranked a Top 25 Freight Brokerage by Transport Topics.
