Pacer International, a North America logistics and transportation provider, has announced the retirement from its board of directors of Joshua Harris, a founding partner of Apollo Management LLP, Pacer’s equity sponsor and principal shareholder from 1999 to 2004. Harris is leaving the board to devote more time to other business commitments.

“Josh Harris remained on the board to facilitate a smooth transition even after the final sale of Apollo’s shares in the company in November 2004,” says Don Orris, chairman and chief executive officer of Concord, Calif.-based Pacer. “We thank him for his many years of advice and counsel that have helped position Pacer for continued growth and leadership in the intermodal and logistics markets.”
