Leo Suggs, chairman of the board for third-party logistics provider Greatwide Logistics Services, has also been named chief executive officer, replacing Raymond B. Greer, who resigned. John Simone will continue as president and chief operating officer.
“Since taking the helm at Greatwide in 2005, Ray Greer has worked diligently to grow the company, build a strong management team and guide operations through an ownership change and challenging economy,” said Suggs. “We have enjoyed the benefits of his leadership and his loyalty to the company and thank him for his contributions. We wish him the greatest success in his future endeavors.”
Suggs joined Greatwide as chairman in 2009. He has worked in executive positions for more than two decades, including time with Overnite Transportation, Preston Trucking, Yellow Freight and Ryder/PIE.
“Greatwide will continue to focus on service, growth, yield, cost control and safety as it meets the needs of its customers,” added Suggs. “We are one of the best-capitalized companies in the industry and we are poised for long-term growth with a superior management team and competitive service offerings in place.”
