Alexandria-based logistics industry digital recruiting and training provider TransForce Group announced last week it has named Dennis Cooke as the company’s president and CEO, succeeding founder David Brome, who now serves as executive chairman.
With more than 30 years of experience, Cooke was most recently president of global fleet management solutions for Ryder System Inc., a commercial fleet management company. In his new role, he will lead the company’s day-to-day operations and strategy.
“Dennis is a proven leader who possesses a deep understanding of transportation and logistics customers, Leon Brujis, partner at Palladium Equity Partners LLC (a private equity firm whose affiliate is TransForce Group’s majority owner) said in a statement. “We believe that these attributes, along with his track record of success in driving cross-functional team performance and achieving customer satisfaction and growth, will be significant benefits to TransForce Group and its large base of carrier customers going forward.”
