CNF promotes from within after management turnover
CNF President Douglas Stotlar named several new executives to lead the Palo Alto, Calif.-based transportation services provider and its Con-Way trucking unit.
The new team will work to transform the organization from a traditional holding company to more of an operational company that takes more oversight of Con-Way and the company’s logistics subsidiary, Menlo Worldwide. Stotlar indicated after taking over in April that he intended to take a much more hands-on approach (see May 13 Shippers’ News Wire).
David McClimon, 49, was named senior vice president of CNF and president of Ann Arbor, Mich.-based Con-Way Transportation Services, the regional less-than-truckload motor carrier that provides national coverage with three divisions. McClimon rose through the ranks to head Con-Way Central Express, the company’s largest trucking unit. Stotlar was president of Con-Way before the CNF board named him to lead the parent company.
David Miller, 49, was named president of Con-Way Central Express, succeeding McClimon. Miller was president of Con-Way Southern Express, Fort Worth, Texas.
James Worthington, 52, was promoted to president of Con-Way Southern Express, succeeding Miller. He has worked at Con-Way since 1987.
Bryan Millican, 55, will be CNF senior vice president of sales and marketing, a new position at CNF.
Robert Bianco, 40, was named president of Menlo Worldwide and a CNF vice president. Menlo comprises Menlo Worldwide Logistics and Vector SCM, a third-party logistics joint venture with General Motors to manage the flow of goods for the automaker. Bianco was president of Menlo Worldwide Logistics. He takes over for John Williford who left the company when Stotlar was named to head CNF.
CNF selected John Labrie, 38, president of Con-Way Supply Chain Solutions and a CNF vice president. He will oversee Con-Way Truckload, Con-Way Truckload Brokerage, Con-Way NOW expedited delivery and Con-Way Air Express, as well as the company’s global expansion strategy, trailer manufacturing and purchasing. He was executive vice president of operations for Con-Way and previously served as president of Con-Way Western Express.
