Board nominees Don Brown and Chris Jamroz are announced, Pan Hua and Michael Wunderlich have new roles and Tim Leonard is hired.
Roadrunner announced that Donald C. Brown and Christopher W. Jamroz have been nominated for election to the company’s board of directors at its annual meeting May 22.
Three current directors, John G. Kennedy III, William S. Urkiel and Michael P. Ward, will resign from the board effective May 22 as part of a planned board transition.
“On behalf of our board and management team, I would like to thank John, Bill and Mike for their valuable counsel and years of service to Roadrunner. Their collective commitment to Roadrunner enabled us to successfully navigate some challenging times over the past few years. We wish all three great success in their future endeavors,” said Roadrunner CEO Curt Stoelting.
Stoelting said Brown and Jamroz “have extensive industry experience and knowledge in finance, operations, management and administration. Don and Chris will be valuable assets and key advisers to our company as we continue to pursue our long-term business plan.”
Brown retired in 2017 after a 20-year career at FedEx Corp. His career includes serving as executive vice president of finance and administration and chief financial officer of FedEx Freight from 2008 to 2017. Prior to joining FedEx, he held positions with Caliber System Inc., Roadway Services Inc. and Ernst & Young.
Jamroz is executive chairman of STG Holdings LLC, a specialty 3PL and transportation services provider. He also serves as chairman of the board of CMS Info Systems Ltd., a secure logistics company. He previously served as president and chief operating officer of GardaWorld Cash Services from 2010 to 2016.
Pan Hua (pictured above left) has been promoted from deputy to head the Port of Hamburg Marketing Representative Office in Shanghai.
The previous manager, Lars Anke, “left the office at his own request to dedicate himself to a new challenge in Hamburg’s port economy,” according to the announcement from the Port of Hamburg.
The position of deputy head has been filled by Michael Wunderlich (pictured above right), who has studied Chinese and has been active in business in Shanghai.
“We naturally regret that Lars Anke, who has given valuable service to the Port of Hamburg for more than 12 years in Shanghai and China generally, has now decided to make a change in his career,” said Axel Mattern, co-CEO of Port of Hamburg Marketing. “With Pan Hua, a colleague has taken over the Shanghai office who has years of experience and excellent contacts. In her new function, Pan Hua will ensure the continuity of our work on the spot and going forward be available as contact person for all of our partners, members and customers.
“With Michael Wunderlich, we have signed on a China ‘insider’ who will excellently complement the Representative Office team. The ongoing intensive handling of the Chinese market continues to be of great importance for the Port of Hamburg that, with regard to the development of the Belt and Road Initiative, may well increase further,” Mattern said.
Kleinschmidt has hired Tim Leonard as senior vice president of business innovation.
Leonard has more than 30 years of supply chain, logistics and technology leadership experience, most recently as chief technology officer of TMW Systems.
Prior to his role at TMW Systems, he served in executive leadership roles at General Motors and U.S. Xpress. In this newly created position, Leonard will drive Kleinschmidt’s product and service development as well as go-to-market strategy within the supply chain services vertical.
Dan Heinen, president and CEO of Kleinschmidt, said Leonard “has spearheaded a wide variety of big data, blockchain and freight technology initiatives.”
Heinen said he was excited to add Leonard’s industry knowledge, “especially as it relates to the supply chain within transportation and logistics, to our unparalleled competence in the data integration arena.”
