Welcome Our New General Manager, Dennis Wolbeck
Hello, my name is Dennis (Denny) Wolbeck. I joined the Arfsten Transfer team in October, 2015. To give you an idea of my background, I began my career in the transportation industry in 1993 as a truck driver. Over time I found myself wanting more responsibility so I continued to challenge myself to learn more about the industry and to take advantage of as many learning opportunities as possible. As the years went on I continued to work my way into a leadership role where I continued to stay focused on the transportation industry and surrounded myself with peers that were more than willing to help guide me along the way.
One goal in life for me was to own my own truck so in 2014 I left my transportation manager position, bought a tractor and trailer and became an owner operator. It didn’t take long for me to realize I needed a more involved work experience with direct contact with other people so I set out to find myself another leadership position. Dennis Arfsten was kind enough to give me an opportunity as General Manager here at Arfsten Transfer. During my tenure here, I have been fortunate enough to meet some knowledgeable people along with a great team of office staff and drivers. As we look into the future of Arfsten Transfer, I envision us continuing to build on the foundation that Dennis Arfsten has built over the years by providing superior customer service and encouraging a positive and energetic working environment for our drivers, office staff, customers and vendors.
I welcome any feedback so if you have any questions or comments, please feel free to reach out to me at or 320-774-0039.
