The independent voice of the global moving industry


New president and chairman for Crown as Tom Doyle retires

May 04, 2017
Crown Worldwide Moving & Storage in California announced recently that its Board of Directors has appointed Salvatore (Tori) Ferrante as president and chief executive officer, effective immediately.

Bob Bowen, Crown’s CEO for over nine years, will be assuming the role of chairman of the Board and Tom Doyle, one of Crown’s original investors, will be retiring from that position.  

Tori joined Crown in 1985 as a corporate sales executive.  He spearheaded Crown’s move-management software integration, instrumental in Crown’s merger with Armstrong Relocation’s family of companies. He currently functions as the head of the international division for Crown and Armstrong. A strong voice in his industry, Tori is presently president of the US Section of FIDI and a director of OMNI. Tori is also very active in the ERC and other industry associations.  

“It has been inspiring to watch Tori grow over the years, both as a leader in our company and in our international associations, where he is well respected by his peers,” said Bob Bowen. “Tori has proven to be even-keeled, making decisions based on gathering all the facts and placing emphasis on providing quality to our customers and training for our employees.”  

Bob was one of the early investors in Crown. He ran the international division for 30 years before becoming CEO in 2008. During that time he served on the OMNI (Overseas Moving Network International) Board and in 1994 founded OSA (Overseas Shippers Association), a non-profit organisation dedicated to helping its 200 members negotiate effectively with the global ocean carriers to move household goods and related commodities.  

Tom Doyle has been a calm leader for Crown in a tumultuous industry. Tom will remain on the Crown Board of Directors. “Crown represents 45 years of my life,” said Tom. “Being part of a startup was challenging and its growth has been exciting. I am proud of Crown and know that the company will grow and prosper under this new management structure.”
