CH Robinson names Hagen interim CFO

April 9, 2019
Company also announced a first-quarter reorganization of its enterprise transportation services

CH Robinson recently named Scott Hagen, the company’s corporate controller, interim chief financial officer while it completes a search for a permanent CFO.

Hagen has led CH Robinson’s accounting and financial teams since 2008.

CH Robinson also reorganized its enterprise transportation services structure in the first quarter of 2019 to combine its North American surface transportation (NAST) and Robinson Fresh transportation networks.

The newly combined transportation network will be managed by and reported under the NAST segment, the company said.

With this structure change, first-quarter operating results will be based on two segments: NAST and global forwarding. Robinson Fresh results will be combined with the managed services and other surface transportation segments in the “all other and corporate” category.

To provide a basis for comparison, the company said it will provide certain historical segment information under the new segment organization.

“As we combine the best practices of the NAST and Robinson Fresh transportation networks, we believe we are well positioned to support the future growth of Robinson Fresh, and also strengthen the overall effectiveness of our temperature controlled service offering,” said Bob Biesterfeld, chief operating officer and CEO-elect of CH Robinson.

“Robinson Fresh is an important part of our history and our culture. We take great pride in our Robinson Fresh team, who works every day to bring fresh food to the tables of families around the world.”
