CNF tapped Robert Bianco, 40, as a vp of the company and to serve as president of Menlo Worldwide, CNF’s third-party logistics and supply chain services subsidiary. Finally, Julia "Pat" Jannausch, 50, takes over as CNF’s vp of culture and training with responsibility for management of the company's culture development initiatives, training and a new company-wide leadership development program.
Douglas Stotlar, CNF’s president & CEO, said these promotions and executive shifts are critical to help $ 4 billion CNF move from its traditional model as a holding company to a true operating organization.
“It’s important that our strategic direction be focused on providing our customers with great service and innovative products in freight transportation, logistics and supply chain management,” he said. “This organizational change will allow us to do that by eliminating duplication, leveraging existing company resources and focusing every employee directly on the customer.”
