Schneider National announced Wednesday, June 28, that Scott Arves, president of transportation in charge of truckload and intermodal, has resigned to pursue a new phase in his career. Schneider also announced new leadership of its truckload and intermodal operations: Mark Rourke, currently general manager of transportation management, has been named president of truckload; and Bill Matheson, who served as vice president and general manager of intermodal, now will act as president of intermodal.

Arves provided more than 27 years of service to Schneider National. In May 2000, he was named president of transportation, responsible for a portfolio of truckload services, including one-way, dedicated, expedited and bulk. “Schneider has enjoyed more than two decades of passionate and dedicated contributions from Scott,” says Chris Lofgren, president and chief executive officer of Green Bay, Wis.-based Schneider National. “We will greatly miss his loyalty, his industry knowledge and his valued leadership.”

Rourke has held various leadership roles at the company since joining in 1987. As president of truckload, he will lead Schneider’s one-way, dedicated, expedited and bulk offerings, further bolstering the company’s leadership position in all of these areas. The company also is rapidly expanding its intermodal offerings to include new services that eliminate transit time and increase flexibility; Rourke and Matheson both will play a crucial role in this area.

“Appointing presidents of the truckload and intermodal divisions separately is a natural move as each offering in our enterprise grows,” Lofgren says. “As the nation’s largest truckload provider, and considering our rapid intermodal expansion, Mark and Bill will play key roles in Schneider’s overall operations and strategic growth.”
