Specialized transport and logistics company Daseke has announced that Don Daseke has retired from his role as CEO with immediate effect.

The company’s board of directors has appointed Chris Easter, Daseke’s chief operating officer, to act as interim CEO until a new CEO can be found.

According to the USA-based company Daseke will work with Easter, who joined the company in January, in an advisory capacity to ensure a smooth transition. The retiring CEO has also stepped down as chairman of the board of directors and will now hold the position of chairman emeritus on the company’s board.

Don Daseke said, “I am incredibly proud of what we have built over the last decade. Daseke remains a truly unique company, with a platform designed to support future growth on both the top- and bottom-lines. I am leaving the company in the hands of a very strong and deep leadership team across the organisation. Investing in people has always been my guiding principle and we have invested in this team, which makes me very confident that they will help Daseke achieve its full potential.”
