Eagle Transport, a petroleum and bulk transportation carrier, has announced several management changes.

As of Feb. 1, 2015, President Bill George became President Emeritus. Replacing George is Lance Collette. Herb Evans is now vice chairman of the board and Joe Duncan is senior vice president-finance and CFO.

George will remain with Eagle until early 2016, helping with the leadership transition, and focusing on a few timely projects as he completes his illustrious career in the trucking industry.

“You might say it’s the end of an era, but it’s also the beginning of a new one—14 years ago, John Thomas retired after leading Eagle Transport to a highly regarded pedestal in the industry,” said Don Stallings, Eagle's chairman.

“Bill George came aboard at that time, and the growth and progress has continued," he added. "To say the least, Bill’s tenure and leadership with Eagle has served us all well. History records the accomplishments of Eagle during Bill’s time with us. From 260 trucks to 440; from 700 employees to over 1000, are just a few of the milestones achieved over the last 14 years.”
