The largest flatbed, specialized transportation and logistics solutions company in North America, Daseke, Inc., recently announced the voluntary resignation of two board members Mark Sinclair and Ron Gafford. Daseke offers best-in-class, comprehensive services to many of the world’s most respected industrial shippers through experienced people, a million-plus square feet of industrial warehousing space, and a fleet of approximately 13,000 flatbed and specialized trailers and 6,000 tractors. For more information, please visit www.daseke.com. The Board will have a reduction in directors as a result, going from 11 to 8. The open position of Chair of the Audit Committee was filled by Daniel J Hennessy.
Gafford and Sinclair jointly stated, “We are grateful for the opportunity to have advised Daseke through its initial growth phase, including taking it public, as the company became the largest flatbed and specialized carrier in North America. As Daseke focuses on achieving operational efficiency, we believe this is an appropriate time to step away from our advisory roles as Directors. We remain excited to see Daseke grow and succeed as it enters its next chapter.”
Brian Bonner, Executive Chairman, commented, “The reduction in the size of the board is consistent with our decision to right-size our corporate overhead structure and streamline our organization. With the addition earlier this year of Ena Williams, Chuck Serianni, and Kim Warmbier, we have refreshed Daseke’s Board with directors experienced in executing operational efficiency initiatives and managing finances for publicly traded companies. We thank Ron and Mark for their contributions, which helped make Daseke one of the fastest-growing truckload companies in North America.”
