Top executives are shifting jobs at truckload carrier C.R. England, with CEO Dean England taking the president’s title from Chairman Dan England.
Wayne Cederholm, chief operating officer, will take the CEO title from Dean England and Chad England, formerly president of England North America, will become chief operating officer.
“This is the most significant adjustment to the leadership of the organization in a generation,” said Dean England, a brother of Dan and grandson of Chester R. England, who founded the Salt Lake City-based company in 1920.
Dan England will become chairman of the American Trucking Associations this fall, a one-year position that will require him to spend time away from C.R. England, now the ninth-largest truckload carrier in the U.S. when ranked by revenue.
“We recognize the need to adjust our organizational structure to ensure continued effective operation,” Dean England said.
Last year the refrigerated freight specialist had approximately $867 million in revenue, a 6.6 percent increase from 2009, according to SJ Consulting Group.
