XPO Logistics has appointed Tony Brooks as president of its less-than-truckload business, effective Nov. 11, 2015.

As president, Brooks will have executive responsibility for XPO’s LTL operations in North America, which the company recently acquired when it bought Con-way. Brooks joined XPO from food distributor Sysco, where he was responsible for all North American Operations.

“Tony is a high impact player with 11 years in LTL, who has run three of the largest fleets in North America,” said Bradley Jacobs, chairman and CEO of XPO Logistics. “We're excited that Tony will be leading our LTL platform in North America to its full potential as part of our larger service offering."
