Danny Loe has been promoted to vice president-enterprise customer solutions for Fort Smith-based Arkansas Best Corp. following the retirement last month of Jim Keenan who previously held the job.
Loe will report directly to Arkansas Best President and CEO Judy McReynolds, and his start date is effective May 1.
The Enterprise Customer Solutions group was formed in November 2013, to drive sales and revenue across the ABF Freight, ABF Logistics and Panther Expedited Services businesses.
Loe is a 17-year veteran of the company and most recently served as vice president-yield management for ABF Freight System since 2010. He held a number of increasingly senior positions in the ABF Freight pricing department after joining the company as an associate pricing analyst in 1997. He also served as director of Marketing & Public Relations for ABF Freight for six years until assuming his current role.
"Danny's deep experience in pricing analytics, combined with a strong knowledge of our customers' needs, will be very valuable in his new role as we look to better serve our customers across the supply chain and particularly drive additional sales of multiple services across ABF Freight, ABF Logistics and Panther," McReynolds said in a statement.
Succeeding Loe in his role at ABF Freight will be Eddie Sorg. Sorg, who most recently has served as director of Pricing, has been with ABF Freight since 1995. In addition to various positions in pricing, Sorg also served as a director, Revenue Accounting.
