Please review the following organizational changes below.
As we all know Caroline Winegarden is retiring next year. Heather Devins will transition into Caroline’s role as of January 1st, 2015. Heather primarily will be responsible for the compliance of our maintenance programs, MTO/DOT audits and MIR. Heather will report to John Ball.
Grayson Maillet will transfer to Logistics & Solutions Group as of November 1st, 2014. Grayson will be responsible for the continued development of sales, carrier base and customer development. He will also continue to be located in our operation group in order to continue to build efficiencies between our operations group and logistics/sales. Grayson will report to Peter Maillet.
As we know Tannis Rulli is expecting a new bundle of joy next spring. Andrew Sutor will transition to US Highway dispatch to take over for Tannis effective March 1st, 2015. Andrew will report to Jeff Barquest.
Two new positions have opened up and we will be posting these positions internally and externally.
We will be hiring an Administration Clerk that will report to Megan Salmon. This position will sit in our operations group. Their primary responsibilities will be reception (we will be moving to a live answer phone system) and recruitment and retention administrative functions. For a more detailed job posting please see Megan Salmon. If you wish to apply for this position or know of anyone that might be interested please see Megan.
We will also be hiring a Junior Dispatcher that will report to Larry Graves on our US Local Board. This position will work on the local board assisting with dispatch, entering orders, updating trucks, providing reports etc. We are still working out the exact job functions and hours of this position so once we have this position finalized we will post internally and externally. If you are interested or know of anyone that might be interested please see either myself or Kevin Gates. Once the position has been finalized all hiring/interest will go through Larry Graves.
Please join me in wishing Heather, Grayson and Andrew much success in their new roles.
