Less-than-truckload (LTL) carrier YRC Worldwide Inc. said today it has named Phil J. Gaines, a 22-year company veteran, chief financial officer.
Gaines replaces Sheila Taylor, who resigned March 30 to pursue opportunities outside the LTL sector.
Gaines had been senior vice president, finance for YRC. In his new role, Gaines, who will also retain his senior vice president position, will report directly to Mike Smid, who is president of YRC Inc., parent of YRC Worldwide.
Gaines had served as president of the former Yellow Transportation prior to the merger of Yellow and Roadway Express that created YRC National, the company's long-haul operation.
