    Default YRC's Mike Smid Retires

    "Architect of Yellow-Roadway consolidation departs as new CEO takes charge"

    Amid Retires as President of YRC | Journal of Commerce
    Michael J. Smid, the chief operating officer of YRC Worldwide who handled the largest carrier less-than-truckload consolidation in history, left the company Friday.

    New CEO James L. Welch will take on Smid’s responsibilities until YRC Worldwide finds a new president for its national LTL subsidiary, YRC Inc.

    Smid, who joined Yellow in 1985, held several management posts in his career with YRC, including executive vice president at Yellow and president of Roadway. From 2007 through 2009, Smid managed the integration of YRC Worldwide’s flagship carriers, Yellow Transportation and Roadway Express, closing hundreds of terminals and shrinking payroll from about 55,000 to 34,000 employees.

    It's probably in the yearly report, I just don't have the motivation to look. They've beaten the care out of me.
