Transportation software provider SiriComm has announced that William W. Graham has been named as the company’s president and chief executive officer, effective immediately. Graham succeeds Hank Hoffman, who will continue to serve as chairman of the board of the Joplin, Mo.-based company.

Graham brings more than 30 years of experience in all facets of the transportation industry. Most recently, he oversaw operations at the Classic Card Company, which he and his wife owned beginning in 2001. Previously, he held senior management positions at several railroad and trucking companies.

From 1995 to 1999, Graham was senior vice president of marketing and sales of Kansas City Southern Railway, where he oversaw five business units as well as customer service. From 1984 to 1995, Graham held various management positions at Yellow Freight System (now YRC Worldwide), with his last position being vice president of transportation and operations services. At Yellow, he was involved in the expansion and growth of the company following the deregulation of the trucking industry.

“I am excited to have Bill join our executive management team and oversee the company’s operations,” Hoffman says. “I am looking forward to the opportunity to spend much of my time helping to identify and develop new strategic opportunities. Our vision of becoming the communications standard for the trucking industry is becoming a reality, and Bill’s extensive management experience in transportation will help ensure we successfully execute on the many opportunities before us. We continue to be very positive on the long-term outlook for SiriComm, and we believe Bill will be a great addition to the company.”
