Pittman, who has been with Bennett for about ten years, navigated the company through the economic downturn, and his colleagues and staff members credit his positive demeanor and his optimistic outlook for keeping the company on the right financial track. In June 2012, in addition to his role as CFO, Pittman was also named chief operating officer.
“David is someone who I know I can trust,” said Marcia Taylor, president and chief executive officer of Bennett International Group. “And I know that having David in the role of chief financial officer and chief operating officer, my goals will be met.”
At Bennett’s 2014 Symposium, Pittman won The TED Award, named after Ted Paul, who started Bennett’s DriveAway division in 1986. The annual award is given to the person who best exemplifies talent, ethical behavior, and dedication. And in 2011, Pittman received the J.D. Garrison Award, the most coveted award named after the company’s founding father, presented each year to the most outstanding individual instrumental in laying the strong foundation on which Bennett stands today.
Pittman is also known as a family man and recognized for his involvement in the community having served as a member of the Henry County Rotary, Henry County Chamber of Commerce, and on the Board of Directors for Hands of Hope Clinic, Inc., an organization that provides free medical and dental care to uninsured and undeserved in Henry County. He also spends time supporting Flint River Council of the Boy Scouts of America.
