C.R. England has promoted Brandon Harrison and Zach England, two current members of the transportation company’s executive committee, to the positions of chief operating officers, according to Chad England, CEO.
Harrison will oversee the national, regional and Mexico divisions, as well as safety. Zach England will oversee dedicated and intermodal operations and will serve as chairman of the board of England Logistics, a third-party logistics provider and a subsidiary of C.R. England.
Harrison was most recently president of the national and regional divisions at C.R. England. He has been with the company since 2003, serving in a number of roles including operations manager, senior operations manager of the dedicated division, director of national fleet operations and vice president of over-the-road trucking. Before joining C.R. England, Harrison was an entrepreneur in the real estate industry, creating a property acquisition firm.
Zach England is a great-grandson of founder Chester R. England. He was promoted from the position of president of the dedicated division. He has worked in a variety of positions for the company throughout his college years and started full-time in 2004 with England Logistics. In 2007, England moved into the role of vice president of intermodal. In December 2011, he was named vice president of the dedicated division, and in August 2012 he became president of that division.
The promotions follow the death of C.R. England’s former CEO Wayne Cederholm on April 9, 2013, and C.R. England’s subsequent reorganization of its senior management team.
