Roadrunner Transportation Systems, Inc. (NYSE: RRTS) today announced that
Brian van Helden has been promoted to Chief Operating Officer. Mark DiBlasi,
Roadrunner’s CEO, stated, “Brian has been instrumental in the company’s growth
and success over the past seven years and is uniquely qualified for this
promotion. Brian has extensive operational experience both in the broader
trucking arena and specifically in all aspects of Roadrunner’s businesses. All
operations will report directly to Brian over the long term. He will
immediately assume direct leadership of our LTL operation, replacing Scott
Dobak who has tendered his resignation effective December 31, 2013 to further
his career as CEO of a Montreal-based Canadian transportation company that
does not directly compete with Roadrunner. Scott has been an integral part of
Roadrunner’s development over the past seven years and we wish him the best in
his new endeavor.”
As a result of Brian’s promotion, the following changes have been implemented
Pat McKay, President of Roadrunner Truckload Services, will take on an
expanded role at Truckload Services and Intermodal Services. Kevin Charlebois,
President of Prime Distribution Services, will continue to lead Roadrunner’s
freight consolidation operation and Roadrunner expects to expand his
responsibilities over the next 12 months. In the near term, Mark DiBlasi will
take a more active role in TMS management.
Roadrunner intends to expand its overall sales management team through both
internal promotion and hiring external talent to correspond with the
significant growth Roadrunner has experienced over the past several years.
Roadrunner expects these structural changes to lay the foundation for improved
performance in the near and long term.
