XPO Logistics announces leadership change

Troy Cooper stepped down from his role as President of XPO Logistics, effective 27 December 2021.

Cooper will continue working with the company as senior advisor through to 30 June 2022.

“With the spin-off of GXO [in 2021], and in light of the progress we’ve made transforming XPO into a pure-play transportation company, Troy and I agreed this was a natural time for him to step down,” said XPO Logistics Chairman and CEO, Brad Jacobs.

“Troy’s contributions over the past decade have been invaluable, particularly his efforts driving the growth of our best-in-class truck brokerage business from its earliest days and his leadership of our European operations from 2015 to 2017.

“We’re very well positioned with strong leaders in each of our business lines, with Mario Harik as acting president of less-than-truckload, Drew Wilkerson leading North America transportation, and Luis Gomez leading Europe transport.

“I’m grateful Troy will continue to provide counsel to me and our leadership team over the next six months, and we wish him all the very best going forward,” he said.

“It’s been an honour to work with the team as we’ve built XPO into a leading freight transportation services provider,” said Cooper. “The leadership team we’ve assembled is the best in the industry, and it’s gratifying knowing that the business is in excellent hands and our prospects are so bright.”
