Horizon Transport had added industry veteran Andy Cripe to its senior management ranks.
“Horizon is making an addition that is necessary and well-timed in terms of what’s best for our customers and employees,” Horizon Transport President Joe Braun said.
In his new role as executive vice president, Cripe will help set overall sales strategy and direction with a specific focus on customer relationships and growth.
“We are very excited to bring Andy onto the team,” Braun said. “He brings a unique perspective to our existing management group and we feel his inputs will result in new opportunities for our company, our employees and most importantly—our customers. It’s an exciting time for Horizon Transport. We have a great team in place and we’re laser-focused on exceeding customer needs.”
Horizon Transport Owner and Chairman Emeritus Marion Schrock recently stepped away after managing operations for 35 years. Schrock’s goal is to let the company’s management team write the next chapter. The addition of Andy Cripe completes the company’s succession plan and keeps the company’s operations and growth strategy in the hands of industry veterans.
