Feb. 2, 2015

C.R. England has appointed Mitch England vice president of driver relations and also promoted Lisa Callister to vice president of human resources.

England previously served as vice president of human resources. His new position is a newly-created position within the carrier focused on attracting and retaining quality drivers.

Callister was director of human resources.

“Mitch England has been the vice president of human resources for almost two years and has been instrumental in creating a strong HR department," said Josh England, president. “He’s also made very significant contributions to the company in other positions since he began full-time eight years ago.  With Mitch in his new role, the company gains a strong advocate for drivers.”

Mitch England has been with the company since 2007 holding such positions as vice president of human resources, director of maintenance support and director of fuel.  In his new position, England will oversee the payroll, independent contractor, driver advocates and reception groups.

Callister joined C.R. England in October 2013 as director of human resources. In her new role, she will oversee a full spectrum of human resources leadership initiatives for the C.R. England employee base nationwide. This includes administrative oversight and leadership for all human resource functions including, employee relations, talent acquisition, employment, HRIS, compensation, benefits, employee health, organizational effectiveness, workforce planning, and leadership development.

“Lisa Callister has been with C.R. England almost a year and a half as Director of Human Resources and has done a tremendous job,” Josh England added. “She has an impressive track record as an HR executive at prior career stops before we were fortunate enough to have her join us.  We're excited about the future of the group under Lisa's leadership.”
