Ryder System, a provider of transportation and supply chain management solutions, has appointed Mark T. Jamieson as executive vice president and chief financial officer, succeeding Tracy Leinbach, effective March 1. Leinbach previously announced her plans to retire from the company following the completion of the 2005 fiscal year.

“We are pleased to welcome Mark to Ryder’s management team,” says Greg Swienton, chairman and chief executive officer of Miami-based Ryder. “His proven leadership and track record of optimizing the financial and operational performance of quality organizations should allow him to contribute broadly to our objective of long-term sustainable profitable growth. We also believe Mark’s extensive experience within the industrial sector has uniquely prepared him for a smooth, efficient transition into this important role within our organization.”

Jamieson will lead the finance and audit, strategic sourcing, information technology, investor relations and public affairs functions. He comes to Ryder from Sammons Enterprises, a $2.5 billion, privately held conglomerate, where he served as executive vice president and CFO. Jamieson also briefly served as CEO of Electric Insurance Co., a stand-alone unit of General Electric, before he joined Sammons.
