Transportation management software (TMS) vendor MercuryGate International Inc. has named five senior executives since May in a sweeping upgrade of its top management team, the company said.
The new hires, announced earlier in the week, will fill new and vacant positions as MercuryGate ramps up for growth, the company said. They include Carl Coe as chief operating officer; Dan Graham as chief financial officer, and Rajesh Ramchander as chief technology officer. Chris Morhard, a former top executive at JDA Software Group Inc., was named chief delivery officer, helping to oversee MercuryGate's customer relationships. In addition, Jeanne Bauer was named vice president for human resources. Coe's and Morhard's positions were newly created.
The names in the corner office will remain unchanged, as the Cary, N.C.-based company will continue to be led by the company's founders, CEO Monica Wooden and President Steve Blough. They had cooperatively covered COO functions in the past, but Coe now covers those responsibilities and reports directly to Wooden.
"We are at a juncture requiring us to scale the company to accelerated growth, so executive owners have been named for critical areas," Debra Phillips, MercuryGate's director of marketing, said in an email.
In January, MercuryGate integrated its platform with a carrier onboarding tool from DAT Solutions, saying the move would allow TMS users such as carriers, brokers, and shippers to exchange documents electronically.
And in April, the company launched a freight sourcing and procurement solution called MercuryProcure.
