SMC³ announced today that Rob W. Estes, Jr., president and CEO of Estes Express Lines, Inc. has assumed the chairmanship of the SMC³ board of directors effective January 16, 2012.

My hope is that the board will continue to support and cooperate with SMC³’s leadership, providing them with the resources they need so the company can continually grow and strengthen this strategic advantage.” Jack E. Middleton, SMC³ president and CEO, welcomed Estes and said, “Rob is a well-recognized, highly successful industry leader. SMC³ has solid board leadership from other industry giants, and Rob’s global experience—from leading a well-respected enterprise—will be a valuable addition to this remarkable board.”
Estes plans to continue the work with SMC³ leadership and membership that his predecessors started. “SMC³ enjoys a very advantageous, strategic position in our industry, serving as a support vehicle for shippers and users of transportation services.
