1 min read

Chief Sustainability Officer Craig Harper will step down at the end of the year after 31 years at J.B. Hunt Transport Services Inc. of Lowell.

Harper joined the company in 1992 as vice president and was named chief operating officer in 1997. He held that position for 23 years before taking over J.B. Hunt’s efforts to reduce carbon emissions.

Under Harper’s leadership, the company released its first Sustainability Report and announced the goal to reduce its carbon emission intensity by 32% by the year 2034.

J.B. Hunt announced that Greer Woodruff would become executive vice president of safety, sustainability and maintenance on Jan. 1.

Woodruff has been with J.B. Hunt for 36 years and is currently the company’s senior vice president of safety, security, and driver personnel.

“On behalf of the over 35,000 employees that work here, on behalf of the board of directors and on behalf of the shareholders of this company, I offer our heartfelt thanks to Craig, and that’s not near enough to convey the value that he’s brought to us all,” J.B. Hunt CEO John Roberts said. “Craig is very much a part of that group of leaders that will never be forgotten, and he has made an incalculable commitment, investment and improvement to J.B. Hunt.”
