Roadrunner Transportation Systems has promoted Frank Hurst to President of Roadrunner Freight, the company’s asset-light less-than-truckload business. Former Roadrunner Freight President Grant Crawford is leaving the company to pursue other opportunities, according to the announcement.

Hurst joined the Downers Grove, Illinois-based company in January as senior vice president of sales & marketing for Roadrunner Freight, after having served for three years as vice president / general manager for North America Corp., a distributor of facilities, packaging and marketing supplies.

His career includes 21 years in the transportation industry, including 16 years of increasing responsibilities at FedEx Freight and as executive vice president at LTL carrier Vitran Express.

Roadrunner CEO Curt Stoelting said Hurst “has great LTL operational and sales management experience and will bring a new energy to Roadrunner Freight,” noting that this is “another step in building the long-term management team across all of Roadrunner.”
