Transportation giant YRC Worldwide plans to bring on Timothy Wicks as executive vp & CFO on October 13 – making him responsible for all aspects of the corporation’s finance activities, including treasury, tax, accounting, and financial reporting. He will report directly to Bill Zollars, chairman, president & CEO of YRC Worldwide.

Wicks comes from UnitedHealthcare, where he served as senior vp of strategic growth initiatives. He was primarily responsible for launching new distribution and investment capabilities.

Zollars noted that Wick’s hiring is part of an executive re-alignment at YRC to ensure the successful integration of Yellow Transportation and Roadway. Mike Smid, president of YRC North American Transportation, and Phil Gaines, president of Yellow Transportation, have assumed the additional responsibility of the operational integration, while Terry Gilbert, president of Roadway, has assumed lead responsibility for the local sales integration.

“The operations and sales integrations of Yellow and Roadway are significant steps for our organization,” said Zollars. “With Mike’s extensive operational experience, Phil’s operations and finance background, and Terry’s sales expertise, we are confident we will continue to provide quality service to our customers throughout the integration.”
