Roadrunner Transportation Systems Inc. announced that Brian van Helden has been promoted to chief operating officer. 

He will immediately assume direct leadership of the company's LTL operation, replacing Scott Dobak who has tendered his resignation effective Dec. 31, to further his career as CEO of a Montreal-based Canadian transportation company that does not directly compete with Roadrunner.

As a result of van Helden's promotion, the following changes have been implemented at Roadrunner:

  • Pat McKay, president of Roadrunner Truckload Services, will take on an expanded role at Truckload Services and Intermodal Services.
  • Kevin Charlebois, president of Prime Distribution Services, will continue to lead Roadrunner’s freight consolidation operation and Roadrunner expects to expand his responsibilities over the next 12 months.
  • In the near term, Mark DiBlasi will take a more active role in TMS management.

Roadrunner intends to expand its overall sales management team through both internal promotion and hiring external talent.
