Pilot President, VP Depart While Legal Cases Continue

As a federal investigation into Pilot Flying J continues, the CEO of the Knoxville-based chain of truck stops disclosed that two high-ranking employees have departed, Knoxnews reports. In an email to employees yesterday, CEO Jimmy Haslam said the company’s president and vice president of national accounts left the firm effective immediately. In April 2013, federal agents raided Pilot’s headquarters, seeking information about an alleged scheme to defraud trucking customers of diesel fuel rebates. Ten employees subsequently pleaded guilty to charges in connection with the case. A criminal probe is ongoing.
