C.R. England, one of North America's largest trucking companies, has appointed Sam Scott and Tracy Brown as new division presidents.
Scott has become president of the National and Regional Divisions, and Brown will assume the role of president of the Dedicated Division.
Scott has been with C.R. England since 2003, serving in various capacities at the manager, director and vice president levels in the company. In his most recent position, first as director, then vice president of intermodal operations, Scott oversaw C.R. England's intermodal expansion, playing a key role in the facilitation and support of extraordinary growth with the addition of refrigerated 53-foot container on flat car service.
As president of the National and Regional Divisions, he is responsible for the five business segments within those divisions, including fleet management, customer service, inside sales, load planning and optimization, and network development.
Brown came to C.R. England in 2008, and he has held various positions within the Dedicated Division including director of dedicated operations and vice president of dedicated operations.
As president of the Dedicated Division, Brown has responsibility for more than 1,825 trucks and 2,600 employees which creates over 26 percent of the company's revenue. Prior to C.R. England, he worked in operations for companies such as Exel Direct, Staples and Walmart.
The American Chamber of Commerce in Shanghai (AmCham Shanghai) named Kenneth Jarrett its new president.
He succeeds Brenda Foster, who will step down at the end of June after serving eight years as president to return to Hawaii where she will become an executive-in-residence at the University of Hawaii’s Shidler College of Business.
Jarrett joins the chamber from APCO Worldwide, a Washington-based public affairs consultancy, where he served as chairman for Greater China for the past five years. Prior to APCO, he served as U.S. consul general in Shanghai from July 2005 to August 2008.
Robert Theleen, 2013 chairman of the AmCham Shanghai Board of Governors, said the board unanimously selected Jarrett based on his “qualifications, experience and his personal qualities.”
