Con-way Freight appoints President 16 June 2015

Gregory Lehmkuhl resigned to move to a private equity-owned company

Con-way Inc. has appointed Joseph M. (Joe) Dagnese as President of Con-way Freight, the Company's regional and national less-than truckload (LTL) subsidiary and largest operating unit. Dagnese assumes his new position immediately, succeeding W. Gregory Lehmkuhl, who resigned as President of Con-way Freight to pursue an opportunity as Chief Executive Officer of a private equity-owned company.

Dagnese, a 32-year veteran of the transportation and logistics industry, moves into the top leadership role at Con-way Freight from Con-way Truckload, where he served as its President. 

Joe brings an array of lean management skills, strategic insight and leadership qualities to Con-way Freight.

Dagnese began his career at Con-way in 1995, when he joined Menlo Logistics. Prior to becoming the President at Con-way Truckload, Joe served as Vice President of Menlo's International operations, and previously led Menlo's Automotive and Government Services, and Consumer, Retail & Industrial groups. He joined Menlo following 14 years with The Procter & Gamble Company.

A successor for the President's role at Con-way Truckload will be named at a later date.
