Daseke restructures management

North American specialised transport provider Daseke has initiated a comprehensive restructuring plan that includes a management reshuffle.

Daseke’s “operational and cost improvement plan” includes integrating the company’s operations; implementing business improvement plans; and restructuring its corporate management.

The latter, according to Daseke, has eliminated several positions within its corporate office, resulting in substantial corporate cost reduction. As a result, R. Scott Wheeler has resigned from his position as president and member of the board of directors as of September 4, 2019.

The presidential duties will be assumed by Chris Easter, the company’s interim ceo and coo, as well as other members of the management team.

The company’s chief financial officer (cfo), Bharat Mahajan, will also be leaving Daseke. David Bizzaro from Bridgepoint Consulting will assume the role of interim cfo.

Daseke will conduct a search for a replacement cfo once it has appointed a permanent ceo.
