We are happy for Vince and his wife as they begin a new chapter in their lives, and we wish them much success and happiness.”

Succeeding Hartnett as president of Penske Logistics is Marc Althen, a 22-year Penske veteran, who until this recent appointment served as senior vice president of administration and procurement with Penske Truck Leasing. “I am confident Marc will lead Penske Logistics into its next successful chapter,” hard said. “Marc and Vince have worked closely to ensure a seamless transition.”
