USA Truck Names Justin Kreimer Trucking VP

USA Truck Inc. of Van Buren hired Justin Kreimer to be the company's vice president in charge of trucking operations.

Kreimer will replace Werner Hugo, who joined the company in May 2017 and resigned in March of this year. Hugo received more than $790,000 in total compensation in 2018, according to USA Truck's proxy statement.

Kreimer's salary was not immediately released by USA Truck. Kreimer has 19 years experience in the transportation industry, including 11 years at Marten Transport of Mondovi, Wisconsin; Kreimer worked eight years at Knight Transportation Inc. of Phoenix.

"We consider it a coup that we've been able to add this level of talent to our team again just as we’ve done throughout our executive team," USA Truck CEO James Reed said. "Justin is another high caliber add to our team and has already made significant contributions to our self-help strategy."

Kreimer left Marten in September 2018 and had been working with USA Truck as a consultant.

"As we continue to build our capabilities as a business, Justin is a perfect fit for the operational expertise that we’ve been searching for," Reed said. "He has been on site with us for several months in a consulting role and as we began our search for world-class trucking expertise it became clear that the absolute best choice was already in the building."
