Former USA Truck Inc. CEO James Reed didn’t spend too much time on the sidelines after leaving the Van Buren transportation company in September.
Renren Inc. of Phoenix named Reed to its five-person board of directors earlier this month.
According to its website, Renren runs several software as a service companies, including a real estate technology company and an application that helps truck drivers.
Reed joined USA Truck in July 2016 as CFO, became CEO in January 2017 and ran the company until it was acquired by DB Schenker.
Reed and James Dumler were named to the Renren board to replace two directors who resigned.
Reed was named chairman of the company’s audit committee and named to the corporate governance and nominating committee.
