Schneider National CFO Stephen Bruffett is retiring after five years in the role, the company disclosed in a regulatory filing last week.
He will remain in his role as Schneider seeks his successor, the company said. It has launched a search for his replacement.
Bruffett informed the company of his plans May 18, Schneider said.
According to Bruffett’s bio on Schneider’s website, he has served as EVP and CFO since 2018. Prior to joining Schneider, he served as EVP and CFO of Con-way Inc., which was acquired in 2015 by XPO.
Bruffett previously held senior leadership positions at YRC Worldwide, now Yellow Corp., and finance leadership positions at American Freightways, now part of FedEx Freight.
The financial executive had a goal of retiring at the age of 50. He wrote down that goal in business school and achieved that dream at age 51 in 2015, allowing him to play golf and travel.
“Two years into my retirement I was contacted about the opportunity at Schneider, and it really made me stop and think,” he previously said. “After talking it over with my wife, we made our own ‘leap of faith’ and made the move.”
