US chassis pool operator Consolidated Chassis Management (CCM) has named Michael Mitchell (pictured above) as its interim chief operating officer
Mr Mitchell, who is vice president of human resources and administration, has been with CCM since its launch in 2005 and will start his new role on 1 November.
He succeeds Jon Poelma, who is set to leave the company on 31 October after seven years with CCM.
A company statement said Mr Poelma had been “instrumental in cementing CCM’s position as the leading neutral grey chassis pool manager in the US”.
Mike Wilson, CCM chief executive, added: “While we appreciate Mr Poelma’s contributions, we are confident that Mr Mitchell will seamlessly step into the role of COO.
“A CCM veteran, Mike brings a deep knowledge of our operations and organization, ensuring a smooth transition and operational continuity.”
A 30-year veteran of the container industry, Mr Mitchell has held several management positions at Matson Terminals, Sea-Land Service and CSX Lines.
