Old Dominion Freight Line Inc. on Tuesday, July 5, announced the promotion of Greg C. Gantt to the position of executive vice president and chief operating officer effective June 30. Gantt joined Old Dominion in 1994 and had served as senior vice president of operations since 2002.

“I congratulate Greg on his promotion and have confidence in his ability to continue leading our operations, while excelling in his new areas of responsibility,” says David Congdon, president and chief executive officer of the Thomasville, N.C.-based company. “Greg has been instrumental in guiding our operations toward a 99 percent on-time delivery rate and a cargo claims ratio of approximately 0.5 percent, which are among the best in the industry.”

Gantt has more than 35 years in the less-than-truckload industry. “His breadth of experience and strong leadership have helped build Old Dominion’s position,” Congdon says. “Greg has a proven track record of success, and I expect his leadership and guidance will contribute further to the Company’s long-term growth.”
