Integrated Freight Corp. announced that it has hired David M. Evins as the company’s comptroller, effective immediately. Evins will serve as Integrated Freight’s comptroller in preparation for an expected promotion to chief financial officer following a 90-day transition period.
“Mr. Evins was retained specifically to oversee the accounting and financial aspects of our multicompany acquisition strategy,” says Paul Henley, chief executive officer of Integrated Freight. “Supervising the integration of a nationwide trucking industry rollup is not a simple task, but we believe David is the ideal candidate for the job. His presence here at IFCR is another step forward in the growth of our company, and he will be an invaluable asset heading into the future as we continue to evaluate and obtain additional acquisition targets.”
Prior to joining IFCR, Evins most recently served as executive vice president and CFO at Prince Sports Inc., a global $100 million racquet sports company. Evins has also served as CFO at Marine Accessories Corp., Chris Craft Boats and Boston Whaler Inc., along with a term as a vice president at Igloo Products Corp.
Integrated Freight, based in Sarasota, Fla., provides long-haul, regional and local service and specializes in dry freight, refrigerated freight and hazwaste truckload services, operating primarily in the upper Midwest, Texas, California and the Atlantic seaboard. Integrated Freight was formed for the purpose of acquiring and consolidating operating motor freight companies. IFCR completed its third acquisition in May and says it currently has a revenue run rate of $43 million.
