FedEx Corp. announced on Wednesday FedEx Freight President and CEO William J. Logue will retire Dec. 31 due to undisclosed heath reasons.
He has been in the role at the less-than truckload carrier since 2010.
Michael L. Ducker, a 40-year FedEx veteran, will succeed Logue as president and CEO of FedEx Freight. He will move into his new role on Jan. 1 from his current position as chief operating officer of FedEx Express.
“Bill Logue has led FedEx Freight to significant growth, success and a leading position in the LTL industry,” said Frederick W. Smith, chairman and CEO of FedEx Corporation. “He navigated some of the worst economic conditions the industry has ever seen and delivered outstanding results while positioning FedEx Freight for long-term success. He has established himself as an all-time great leader during his 25 years at FedEx, and while we are sorry to see Bill retire, he has our gratitude, support and best wishes.”
