Pacer International Inc., a nonasset-based third-party logistics and freight transportation provider, announced Tuesday, Nov. 6, that its president, Tom Shurstad, is leaving the company to pursue other interests.

Don Orris, retired chief executive officer and current director of Pacer International, will assume the role of president of Pacer’s intermodal segment. Orris will report directly to Mike Uremovich, chairman and CEO of the Concord, Calif.-based company.

“Having worked closely with Don for more than 25 years, I know his strengths, focus, results-driven orientation and vision — now available to our company on a daily basis in a senior operating role — will help lead our efforts in improving the efficiencies and profitability of the Pacer Intermodal Segment,” Uremovich says.
