Des Moines, IA-based Ruan Transportation tapped Joe Monroe as vp- sales. He is responsible for growth and development of logistics supply chain business in the Southeastern U.S. region, including Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Mississippi.
The company said his mission is to retain and grow business with current customers and cultivate new client relationships in the Southeast, especially in terms of gaining business from Georgia’s deepwater ports in Savannah and Brunswick.
A 25-year industry veteran, Monroe most recently served as vp- transportation & logistics for The Schwan Food Company based out of Marshall, MN. The majority of Monroe’s experience in transportation and logistics was gained during his 20-year career with Ryder System, where he held multiple positions, including director of business development.
